Steiner schools in the UK operate almost exclusively in the independent sector. School fees provide only significant source of income the school receives.
In Norwich Steiner School, we offer 5 full days (9am-3.30pm) for all children from Class 1 upwards. There is, however, the option for parents to take younger children out on one or two afternoons a week should they so wish.
The afternoons when parents may take children out of school at 1pm are as follows:
Linden – Class 1/2 – Wednesdays and Fridays
Ash Class 3/4 – Fridays
Fees for 2021-22
Upper School £7,930 / year
Lower School £7,430 / year
Kindergarten £4,400 / year (for 5 mornings)
Afternoon kindergarten £15.15/session
Fees for 2022-23
Upper School £8,165 / year
Lower School £7,665 / year
Kindergarten £4,572 / year (for 5 mornings)
Afternoon kindergarten £15.85/session
Fees increase incrementally year on year. Upper school fees are generally calculated to increase at a rate of approximately 3% per annum, in order to keep in line with inflation, with lower school and kindergarten fees being linked to upper school fees so that the gap between lower and upper school stays at or around £500. However, the school is currently having to review it’s finances in the light of the high rate of inflation and the cost of living and this may impact on fees in 2022-23.
