School Fees

Fees are set each year to reflect the quality and breadth of opportunities available at Wolverhampton Grammar School. We appreciate that fees represent a significant commitment for families, but we believe it is an investment worth making to experience our unique, independent school. In all instances we try to keep all fees and costs to a minimum.
