Brookes UK School Fees

Competitive fee structure in 2021

We understand the importance of keeping open the option of an alternative education for as many families as possible. We have therefore reviewed our school fees and are delighted to offer an outstanding Brookes education at a more competitive price, on average 25% lower than other independent schools in the area.

We are also able offer a range of scholarships and bursaries for selected students in our Upper School. For a summary of ways a Brookes education can be more affordable see our blog ‘Brookes is best for your family – and your budget’.
