At Bishop’s Stortford College, we endeavour to keep extras to a minimum so that family budgeting is as straightforward as possible. For this reason, lunches, textbooks, stationery, accommodation and laundry (for boarders) and EAL/ EFL (for international students) are all included in the fees, rather than charged as extras.
Fees are due by the first day of term. For UK bank account holders, the required method of payment is by Direct Debit. Direct Debit payees will be notified of the payment date on the invoice issued at the end of the term prior. Any changes to method of payment must be given to the Fees Desk/Finance Manager at least 2 weeks prior to this payment date.
Parents who wish to make regular monthly installments for fees, rather than a whole termly bill, should click the link below for School Fee Plan.
The College have partnered with Western Union to enable overseas parents to pay fees by international bank transfer in USD, EUR, HKD, CNY & over 25 other currencies.

At Bishop’s Stortford College, we endeavour to keep extras to a minimum so that family budgeting is as straightforward as possible. For this reason, accommodation and laundry (for boarders), EAL/EFL (for international students), lunches, stationery and textbooks are all included in the fees, rather than charged as extras.
Please note that due to the variety on offer, and their various charges, external examination fees are added on an individual basis to the fees for the term in which the examination is taken.
Fees are payable by direct debit unless advance payment is arranged through the College Finance Manager.
The College will accept payment through Child Care Vouchers (CCVs) or the Government Tax Free Childcare (TFC) for allowable costs which most usually are:
• all of the fees in the year in which the child is 5 years old.
• boarding up to the end of the year in which the child is 15 (12 for TFC).
• late stay and after school sports in the Pre Prep.
• late stay in Shell (years 3 and 4).
A financial advisor will be able to give you the best advice on the purchase of the vouchers.
If CCVs are used we will adjust your direct debit amounts given sufficient notice to do so.
Boarding at Bishop's Stortford College is about fun, friendship and feeling at home, or so our boarders tell us! Parents, on the other hand, often tell us how much they appreciate the caring, family atmosphere and seeing their children grow in independence and maturity, learning to think of others and taking responsibility.
The College community is a blend of full, weekly and flexi-boarders (those who board up to 3 nights a week), and day pupils. Boarding options are available from the age of 7 and we aim to be as flexible as possible within our available capacity.
Seven nights a week during term time.
Five nights a week (Monday-Friday)
Between two and four nights a week.
This option fulfils the twin aims of helping parents to juggle the various demands of family life and allowing children to experience the benefits of boarding for part of the week. We aim to be as flexible as possible within our available capacity. Flexi-boarders are treated as full boarders on their chosen boarding days, however, we cannot guarantee they will always be in the same room/bed.
