Extras

The College tries to keep the cost of extras to a minimum and we make as many of them as possible optional. As a rule of thumb you might expect to pay £1,000- £1,500 a year in extras.

However, please be aware that certain extras may increase this balance further such as the cost of EAL in the Sixth Form and music lessons as described below. Escort by matrons to medical and dentist appointments can also add up, as can the entrance fees to public examinations. Optional trips abroad and some activities will also increase the charges.

Where possible you will be warned whenever significant extra charges are likely to be made.

Typical fees are as follows:

Music Lessons
(35 min lesson)
£41 per lesson (£39 for second instrument)
English as an Additional Language
(Years 12 and 13)
£1,210 per term

Notice for parents and guardians re "phishing" emails

Please note that there are sometimes attempts to defraud parents of pupils at independent schools through “phishing” emails which may offer an “early bird” discount and ask for fees to be paid into fraudulent bank accounts. If you receive any email which appears to come from Ampleforth but which raises concerns, before making any payment please check with our Finance Department on fees@ampleforth.org.uk or 01439 766869. We are always happy to confirm our bank details before you make any transfer of funds.

Payment of Fees & Deposits

Our preferred method for payment of fees is by direct debit payable from a UK bank.

If direct debit is not possible, payment should be made by bank transfer, by cheque, or by debit/credit card. Please note we do not accept American Express.

  • Please ensure that your name, the student’s name and a reference e.g. school feesregistration fee or confirmation fee are clearly shown on all transfers.
  • Cheques should be made payable to St Laurence Education Trust and sent to Finance.

Parents wishing to make a lump sum fee payment in advance may like to consider our Fees in Advance scheme. Please contact our Fees Officer for details on fees@ampleforth.org.uk or 01439 766869.

Parents NOT using a UK Bank Account

Payments can be made by International Bank Transfer drawn in sterling with all bank charges including those of the receiving bank borne by the sender credited to our bank, details can be obtained from the Fees Officer: Tel: +44 (0) 1439 766869 or fees@ampleforth.org.uk

If possible, you should not pay by means of a personal cheque drawn on a non-UK bank. This will cause delay and will reduce the amount of your payment because of the high bank charges that will be incurred.

Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the education and care that their children receive
