Drumduan School has no state funding and is therefore wholly dependent on school fees, fundraising, donations and any other sources of income that can be found. Outlined below are our annual school fees, payment options and notice period.
SCHOOL FEES UPDATES FOR 2023-2024
A per Family Charge will be added to the fees for the first child of every family in the school. Second and subsequent children will pay the applicable class fee only.
In addition to these class fees, a £1,500 annual charge will be added to the Parent Financial Agreement (PFA) of the eldest child in each family ONLY. To calculate fees for a second or subsequent child, use the annual class fees only.
