Senior School 'Start-Up' Costs
Moving on to any Senior School means extra initial 'start-up' costs for parents. In order to help you prepare for the beginning of the new School year, below are some indicative costs for Year 7 students joining CHS in September.
The full Uniform Lists can be found here, but we estimate that the cost of the compulsory items is from £150 for girls and £165 for boys. In addition, boys and girls must have mouth guards (from £12) and girls need a hockey stick and shin pads (from £47) plus trainers, swim costumes, goggles and a towel.
The full Games Kit Lists can be found here, but we estimate that the cost of the compulsory items is from £144 for girls and £155 for boys. In addition, boys and girls must have mouth guards (from £12) and girls need a hockey stick and shin pads (from £47).
All students in Years 7-9 are required to have either an iPad or iPad Mini. The specification for these devices can be found here. A new iPad costs around £300 for a 32GB and we recommend you insure the iPad to cover for loss or damage (it is roughly £25 a year to insure for an iPad costing £350). All of the apps required are free of charge.
Condover Hall Residential Trip
All Year 7 students participate in the Condover Hall adventure residential, which takes place in the first half of the Autumn Term. This costs approximately £205; the cost is added to the Spring Term's fees.
* Please note that help with these costs is available for students in receipt of Financial Assistance.
