Early Years Funded Education

Please note, we are a registered provider for Surrey County Council Funded Early Education for 3 and 4 year olds. This provides up to 15 hours per week of funded education in Nursery, Kindergarten and Reception up to and including the term of their fifth birthday. Each morning or afternoon session is 4 hours long and each session counts as 3 hours towards the entitlement. St Hilary’s School does not participate in the 30 hours funding scheme.

FEET Places

We offer one FEET funded place each academic year on a case by case basis. For more information please contact Mrs Wynn, the School Business Manager on bursar@sthilarysschool.com 

Workplace Funding


We partner with several childcare providers and employers to offer the government approved Workplace Funding Scheme. If this is of interest to you or you would like to know more please contact Mrs Lemon, the School Finance Manager on accounts@sthilarysschool.com

School fees are normally subject to annual review, but the School Governors reserve the right to increase them at the beginning of any term, should the need arise, in which case as long a notice as is practicable will be given.

The fees are payable in advance, on or before the first day of term. Full payment details can be found at the bottom of the termly bills. If the previous term's account has not been settled, a child may be refused admission at the beginning of a new term. A full term's notice (or fees in lieu thereof) is required before the removal of a child from the School.

Fees are normally paid as a single payment at the beginning of each term. Additionally there are various companies which offer products to spread the cost of fees over the year. Details of such companies can be found online.

A pupil may only discontinue an Extra Subject if a term's notice has been given in writing to the Headteacher.

Please see the Business Manager for information on paying fees by monthly instalments and pupil fee insurance.
