The Duke of York's Royal Military School

A co-educational boarding school for students aged 11-18


Our fees are extremely competitive. Because we are a state boarding school, you will only pay for the boarding provision – not your child’s education (which is paid for by the state). Your child will enjoy the lifestyle of an independent school but at a fraction of the cost.

Boarding Fees

Our Boarding fees for the academic year 2022/2023 are £5,435 per term (£16,305 per annum). The fees are subject to annual review.

If you are in the Armed Forces and qualify for Continuity of Education Allowance, you will only pay 8% of the fee, £435 per term (£1,305 per annum). 

Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA) is available to help Service personnel achieve continuity of education for their child that would otherwise be denied in the maintained school sector if their children accompanied them on frequent assignments both at home and overseas. 

The Education Advisory Team (UK) provides information and advice to Service families and eligible MOD civilians on all aspects of the education of their children in the UK.

They can be contacted by email on:

We endeavour to keep any additional costs to a minimum (for example pupil accident insurance will appear on the termly bill). There will also be a House Account to cover pocket money and any small expenses during term time.

To avoid any surcharge, we ask that termly fees are settled on the first day of term.

Sixth Form Academic Scholarships are available for students meeting the scholarship criteria. Please contact the Registrar, 01304 245023. 

Sport Scholarships are awarded to female students in Hockey and male students in Rugby who demonstrate excellence and dedication to their sport. To find out more, please visit the sports webpage.

Assistance with School Fees

Should you require assistance with the payment of school fees while your child is at the School, we would urge you to contact the appropriate charitable organisations from the links below:

Local Authorities

Local authorities have a duty to consider assisting families in cases of hardship. Under Part 6, Section 61 of the Education Act 2011 which amended the Academies Act 2010, the Local Authority has a duty to meet Condition B whereby payment of the full amount of charges in respect of the board and lodging would involve financial hardship to yourselves. We have provided a copy of this particular section of the Education Act 2011 together with a letter template which you may wish to use when writing to your Local Authority. Please also find below a link to assist you in finding your Local Authority:
