At many independent schools, the cost of meals and trips can be considerable additions to the basic fees.  At The Peterborough School, our fees are fully inclusive of meals as well as anything related to delivery of the core curriculum, including trips and visits, lectures and teaching by visiting experts and the majority of extra curricular activities.

For details of optional extra lessons or payable activities, please contact the School or request a prospectus.

  • For a prospectus and full fees schedule or a guided tour of the School, please email the Registrar, Mrs Liz Pengelly.
  • Alternatively, you may wish to complete the application form (found within the prospectus pack) and forward with the registration fee. Your child will then be called for an Entrance Examination into the Senior School (Year 7), other academic assessment for other Senior School year groups, or a Familiarisation Assessment in the Preparatory School.
