School Fees 2018-2019

School fees are finalised each February for the subsequent academic year, following the advice and input from Division Council.

The school relies on parental fees to offer the robust educational programme that is demanded by the UWC Educational Model.

Parents should expect fees to increase by a cost of living adjustment of 2-2,5% on an annual basis. In the extraordinary event of an unanticipated increase in public-sector salaries or a decrease in the governments ‘ educational subsidy, the fees may increase by more than this amount. Fees are always confirmed at least 6 months prior to the start of the next academic year.

The fees for 2018-2019 are below.
