All fees include class tuition and instruction in Physical Education; lunch during term time; loan of curriculum books, supply of stationery and other educational materials; sports fixtures; personal accident insurance, including dental; lunchtime clubs and activities and the majority of after-school activities.

We regularly compare our fees to other independent schools and we are confident that the cost of education at LCS is better value. As well as our fees being comparable, or lower, than similar schools, the extras often charged by other schools are already included in the fees you pay us. For example, parents can be charged an additional £200-£300 per term for school meals, £300 for books, and £400 for after-school activities.
