Siblings

We offer a discount of 5% off the core fees of your eldest daughter when sisters are attending QM together, up to a maximum of 15% discount per family when three or more sisters are in School

Military Families

A 20% discount on core boarding fees may be available for the daughter(s) of serving members of the Armed Forces.

Merchiston Castle – Brother/Sister School

Queen Margaret’s does not enrol boys but has a special relationship as Brother/Sister school with Merchiston Castle, Edinburgh. There are reductions in fees for sons attending this school.

Overnight Stays

All nights spent by Day Boarders in School are chargeable with the exception of the first two nights of each term, and all Friday nights and/or the last night before Leave Out/Half Term.

*Note, overnight stays are charged at £57.50/night for each night stayed. A discount of £10/night is applied to the first two nights charged each week (Monday to Sunday). This is not aggregated across a term. We do not currently impose a maximum number of nights that a girl may stay in a week, a term or across the School year before we ask that they become Full Boarders as we are aware that occasionally circumstances mean that it is reasonable for a girl to stay more often than normal. However, the number of nights is monitored to ensure that girls who should be Full Boarders are identified and charged as such so that all parents contribute fairly to the cost of their daughters attending QM.

Other Charges

Extra subjects and activities will incur additional charges (eg private dance, tennis, riding and music lessons).
Please contact the Admissions Department for a copy of the Fees and Charges leaflet.

Fee remissions

Our aim is to encourage applications from candidates with as diverse a range of backgrounds as possible, as this enriches our community and is vital in preparing our girls for today’s world.

Means tested bursaries are therefore offered to allow as many girls as possible, who meet our admission criteria, to attend QM.

Further information about means tested bursaries is available in the first instance from our Admissions Team via qm-admissions@queenmargarets.com.

Discounted fees in advance

From time to time, we are able to offer, on a limited basis, the opportunity to deposit funds with the School to offset against future fees with a discount. For further information and availability please contact the Bursar’s office.
