Schedule of Charges for the Academic Year 2020/2021

The Governing Body and the Board of Management have agreed the charges for the academic year 2020/2021. To support parents during the Covid19 pandemic, they have decided to keep the charges at the same level as for 2019/2020:

Admission Type

Charge Per Term

Full Boarding (Year 3-13)


Flexi Boarding (Year 3-6)


Flexi Boarding (Year 7-11)


Sixth Form Non Boarding Package


The above charges are per pupil per term (there are 3 terms in an academic year). The charges will be reviewed again for September 2021.

This is not a mistake! Our level of charges is very significantly lower than that of almost every other UK boarding school because the Royal Alexandra and Albert School is a state-maintained, voluntary-aided school, rather than an independent or private school. This truly is a low price boarding school, but with all the surroundings and facilities of a premium fee school.

There are no compulsory exeats for Boarders.


These will be reviewed annually.


Riding lessons are charged at £245 per term, invoiced at the start of each term. More information can be found here. Lessons for Pony Club are charged at £385 per term. 

Notice of one term in advance must be given if riding lessons are no longer required.


Music lessons are available for all orchestral instruments, harp, drums, piano, organ, recorder, voice, classical guitar, electric guitar, bass and drums.

Lessons are charged at around £21 per lesson. Pupils need to provide their own instruments.

A full term's notice in advance must be given if music lessons are no longer required. Please note that the contract for individual music lessons is between the visiting music teacher and the parent(s).
