Fees and Charges
The School fees cover tuition, meals, lodging (for boarders), most educational materials and resources, and the cost of participating in the majority of our co-curricular activities. In addition, boys incur variable extras, such as charges for music lessons, other optional charges and school trips.
Further information is available here.
Tonbridge truly is a place that makes a home for individuals from a wealth of cultures, backgrounds and life experiences, and we will be keen to welcome you to it.

Tuition fees are billed to a boy's parents (or other person responsible for payment) before the start of each term. The School account includes the School fee for the following term, together with any additional charges (or 'extras') for the previous term.
If a Scholarship, Foundation Award or Bursary has been granted, the value of the award will be clearly shown on the bill and deducted from the final total.
Scholarships, Foundation Awards and Bursaries
Tonbridge forgoes almost £2.5m each year in fee reductions for our Foundation Award, Scholarships and other awards. The School aims to double its number of Foundation Award recipients by 2028, which would amount to 1 in 8 of our pupils receiving significant financial support.
A 10% reduction of fees is given to the third son (and any subsequent sons) of the same family to attend the school.
Change of Circumstance
The School may be able to offer financial assistance to parents (of boys already at the School), who suffer a significant and unexpected change of financial circumstances, impacting on their ability to keep their son(s) at Tonbridge.
Further enquiries should be directed to the Fees Manager.
We are committed to making a Tonbridge education accessible to talented boys whatever their background.
Our Curriculum has been inspired by the skills identified by The World Economic Forum as having the greatest value in the future, from critical thinking, to creativity.
