I have a REALLY stupid question regarding boarding school prospectus & fees

I feel really stupid asking this as DD is at independent prep but I really don't know the answer lol blush

Am looking at secondary schools for her and DD wants to board. One of the schools we are considering says fees are;

Years 7-11 (Day) £3235
Boarding (Weekly) £4685
Boarding (Full) £5365

Ok, here's the stupid question. Day fees I understand. If DD was to weekly board would the fees be £4685 OR £4685 (boarding) PLUS £3235 (Day).

I feel so stupid asking this!

Thank you

£4685 if she's boarding there mon-fri, this is per term so times it by three.

Weekly Boarding is £4685 per term
Full Boarding is £5365 per term

That seems pretty reasonable!

The way I understand it is that day boarders arrive for breakfast and leave after dinner. It does not mean tuition fees.

So if your dd was to bard weekly it would cost £4685. No tuition fees on top, they are already included.

Thank you. It confused me as two of our local independent schools list 'tution' and 'boarding' and these have to be added together (otherwise it would be VERY cheap!).

I feel really stupid for asking but I figured somebody out there would know.

Thank you!

Everything hould be included in those fees. Mon-fri or possibly sat morn £4685. This is actually very cheap for boarding. The full boarding fees you have quoted are the same a most day school round here and less than some.

Weekly board means go home at weekends...full board is there all the time except half terms and other holidays.
