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, regardless of age.
- In Kindergarten, parents must ‘opt-in’ to one or more afternoons of kindergarten and pay an additional fee per afternoon or year.
- In School, the fee is inclusive, but parents have the option to take younger children out on one or two afternoons a week should they so wish. There is no reduction in fee if children are taken out of school on these afternoons.
Afternoons when parents may take younger children out of school:
Apple – Class 1/2 (ages 6-8) – Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
Linden – Class 3/4 (ages 8-10) – Fridays
Fees for 2023-24
Upper School £8,573 / year
Lower School £8,073 / year
Kindergarten £4,980 / year (for 5 mornings)
Afternoon kindergarten £17.30/session
Fees increase incrementally year on year. Upper school fees are generally calculated to increase at a rate of approximately 3% per annum, with Lower school and Kindergarten fees being linked to upper school fees so that the gap between lower and upper school remains consistent. However, in light of the current high rate of inflation and the cost of living, in 2023-24 and 2024-25, fees will be increasing by at least 5%.
