We always aim to give you the best value for money and you will find that our fees are very reasonable in comparison to other private schools and nurseries. We have always been told that we were not “commercially competitive” as we are making the fees at other nurseries appear much more expensive!! We are happy to show that we remain as much as half the price of many other local schools, kindergartens and nurseries. It has been two years since our last fee review. As a guide to the increase, a 5 day place in Kindergarten has increased by only £1.79 per day. If you have any further questions please contact the school office.
NURSERY (2 year olds) Our nursery rates start from as little as £24.32 per session (based on 5 sessions per week). Nursery children may also attend breakfast club from 8am, and lunch until 1.30pm.

NB: The figures below show the fees AFTER the Free early education entitlement has been taken off for you. WMS claims this directly from the local authority on your behalf. Your grant allocation begins once your child is 3. Please note; you are liable, IN FULL, for the ENTIRE cost of the place at the school ie, the fees below AND the portion which is met by the grant payment as that is the true value of the place. If you leave the school half way through a term or without giving a full term’s notice you are liable for this full amount as we cannot claim the grant.

The cost of a place at WMS
Children in the Nursery Class (2 year olds) may attend for a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 mornings per week depending on parental preference for their child and subject to places available. Limited full days can be made available at £45 per day. Children moving into the Kindergarten (3 years +) have traditionally always attended for full school days so as to take a full part in school activities and to prepare them for our Upper School. This can be 3, 4 or 5 full days per week and will depend upon availability and what you need for your child. We try to be as flexible and helpful as we can in accommodating your needs and adapting to changes that parents have. Children of 3 and 4 years of age are entitled to 570 hours of free funded education over the academic year. Please ask if you need any further information and we will be glad to help you. Parents who are in receipt of the funding will be required to sign a parental declaration.
Completion of non-school forms
Due to the large increase in parental requests for the completion of non-school forms such as passports and tax credit forms, we have had to introduce charges for such items as is standard in any other profession. This is due to the extra time spent outside of normal school hours to ensure such requests are met.
|Completion and signing of passport and medical forms||£25|
|Completion of tax credit forms or other personal accountancy forms||£25|
|Any other forms/requests||from £15|
Please be advised that when requests are received a completion time of 5 working days should be allowed. Requests should be submitted via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject line: Non School Form Request
