Admissions

Before we look at fees, let us remind you what we will be providing for your child and, importantly, what is included.

Rose Hill School is set within 15 acres of beautifully maintained grounds, offering an environment that fosters aspiration, adventure, and achievement in a nurturing and caring setting.

Our ambition is to provide every pupil with a well-rounded bespoke education from the moment they join us. We strive to ensure that our fees reflect the exceptional value of a first-class education with small classes and high staff to pupil ratios. Our bespoke curriculum Compass, supported by our 5 keys to success, ensures our pupils are fully prepared for the demands of education and employments in the 21st century.

Our purpose-built facilities and dedicated team allow us to offer a rich learning experience without the added costs often associated with maintaining older buildings.

Our exceptional facilities include a newly built indoor swimming pool, where even our youngest pupils swim weekly, an indoor sports hall, Astro turf and tennis courts both ensuring year-round on-site outdoor exercise, and a 220-seat theatre. Additionally, we have a dedicated art studio including kiln for clay modelling, two libraries, an extensive music department with individual music rooms, a Design and Technology (DT) room equipped with a huge array of machinery and an ICT suite including 3-D printing and programmable robots all of which support our curriculum as well as a wide range of clubs and activities.

Included in our fees is a broad range of catering options including a hot lunch prepared daily by our in-house catering team. We offer a comprehensive range of co-curricular activities, with the cost of regular non-residential school trips included in the fees. Most of our extensive clubs programme (approx. 70 clubs per week) are included with a small selection advertised as costing extra.

*In 2020, our Governors agreed that Year 7 and 8 fees would be discounted by 50% of our Year 6 fees until July 2030, subject to terms and conditions. Additionally, we offer Awards to pupils in Years 7 and 8 who show promise in various subjects. These merit-based Awards recognize potential in categories such as Sports, Drama, Art, STEM, and Music. Recipients of an Award will receive a further percentage discount on their school fees.

To assist parents even further the School offers various schemes to assist with affordability including:

  • an Ambassador referral Scheme which offers fee reductions for current satisfied and loyal parents who refer friends to the school;
  • a fees in advance scheme to allow parents to fund fees in advance for a discount
  • the option to pay fees by direct debit on a monthly basis.

At Rose Hill School, we are dedicated to providing a value-for-money educational experience that equips our pupils with the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to succeed.

Free Early Years Education

The school is currently registered with Kent County Council as a provider of Free Early Years Education for 3 and 4 year olds. All children (in the term following their 3rd birthday) are eligible to receive a maximum of 570 hours Free Early Years Education per year (15 hours per week for 38 weeks). At Rose Hill School we are not able to offer the full 570 hours per year, due to school term dates and are only able to offer 34 weeks. Please note that it is not possible to claim the difference/missed hours at another setting.

Those parents who wish to access only 15 hours Free Early Years Education will be offered 5 sessions per week subject to availability, until their child reaches compulsory school age. In claiming the 15 hours Free Early Years Education you are not required to pay either a deposit or registration fee and where possible we will provide a uniform.

The school reserves the right to withdraw from the scheme at any time and will endeavour to give one term’s notice of our intention.
