Sibling Discount

We offer a sibling discount: fees are reduced by 20% for the 3rd child and all subsequent children, for their full time in the school.  To qualify, a family must have 3 or more children attending a GDST School at the same time before a discount can be awarded to the third or any subsequent sibling.

Notice of Fee Increase

A term’s notice will be given for any increase in fees.


We ask for a non-refundable registration fee of £100.


A £500 deposit is payable on acceptance of a place. The deposit will be held until the end of your child’s final term in school and will be refunded within 12 weeks of their leaving, less any sums owing to the GDST or the school at that time. The deposit cannot be refunded if a pupil is withdrawn after a place has been accepted.

Notice of withdrawal

A term’s notice must be given in writing to the school if you are withdrawing your child. Notice must be given no later than the first day of the term preceding the term to which the notice relates.
