These fees cover every aspect of boarding life including all evening activities, boarding trips when allowed, meals and break-time/ evening snacks but do not cover uniform, other school trips or confectionary. 

We are a state funded school so there are no tuition fees. Considering the exceptional experience enjoyed by boarders at Reading School, we also believe that Boarding at Reading School represents outstanding value for money. As a state boarding school, our fees are approximately one third of those that might be charged in a comparable private school.

All fees are payable in advance, as invoiced by the Finance Manager. All known incidental charges (i.e. pocket money) for the term are to be paid in advance. 

No allowance can be claimed for absence. However there is an optional Fees Insurance Scheme, the cost of which (currently 1% of boarding fees) is charged in advance.

The boarding year is split into 3 terms, Michaelmas, Lent and Summer. Fees for each term are due and payable as cleared funds before the first day of the term to which they relate. A full term’s written notice is required before the withdrawal of a pupil, failing which a full term’s fees are payable to the School. Further information on this is available in our Boarding Terms and Conditions.
