A Foundation to Future Success!

At Highbury, a well-balanced, boy-centric education has proven to be beneficial to your son’s future.

Highbury Preparatory School is offering a limited number of bursaries for each Grade. We invite you for an opportunity to be awarded a bursary for partial tuition fee remission (25% to 50%) which will continue throughout your son’s time at Highbury until the end of Grade 7.

How does partial fee
remission work?

Example: If your son is in Grade 2 in 2024 and is offered a bursary to join Highbury from Grade 3 in 2025, you would pay reduced school fees within the range of 25% to 50% reduction. This percentage reduction would apply consistently every year until the end of Grade 7 for your son.

  Fees per year – usually paid in equal installments over 11 months
GRADE 1 & 2 R93,048 R69,786 R46,524
GRADE 4 & 6 R131,140 R98,355 R65,570
GRADE 7 R138,544 R103,908 R69,272

*Annual inflation-based fee increase is excluded from this calculation

A non-refundable acceptance fee (R13,500- reduced by the same percentage as the fee remission percentage offered) is payable in advance when final confirmation of entry is requested by the Headmaster and must accompany the official acceptance form. This fee is a joining fee and helps fund bursaries and special capital projects.

What are the other costs to budget for?

Highbury fees are as inclusive as possible, with most stationery included as well as all teas and lunches from Grade 3 to 7 (no more lunch boxes, Mum!), all outings except for the Grade 7 excursion, and most cultural group activities included.

Highbury has three other compulsory fees each year (which are subject to annual inflation-based fee increase):

Other costs to budget for when joining Highbury are an iPad for your son, and school uniforms. For a detailed schedule of what is included versus excluded, please refer to the 2024 General Information document which you can request via email to MARKETING@HPS.CO.ZA.
