St. Aubyn’s School is a co-educational independent school for 530 children aged 3 to 13.
About the school
Situated in beautiful surroundings of Woodford Green and Epping Forest and easily accessible from the main thoroughfares of London, St. Aubyn’s is set in eight acres of grounds. It is self-contained and well-resourced, offering small classes and high levels of teaching.
The focus is on the education, welfare and personal development of each child. Strong relationships are at the core of this: relationships among pupils and between pupils and staff, all backed up by a partnership with parents.
A Christian foundation, the School is inclusive of all faiths and backgrounds. Children respect each other’s individuality and achievements. The school motto from 1884 still reflects the approach to teaching and to learning today: Fortiter, Fideliter, Feliciter; Bravely, Faithfully, Happily.
- Total Pupils: 530
- Day Fees: £1970 to £4470/term
Our Open Morning will begin at 10.00 am and the Headmaster's Introduction will start at 10.15 am in the Performing Arts Centre. Full tours of the school will be conducted by pupils and staff.

Scholarships, Bursaries & Fees
The Governors of St. Aubyn’s are committed to broadening access to the School by offering to eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with the payment of school fees. Such support is known as an Assisted Place or Bursary and this may be awarded to a pupil entering Year 3 (7+) in the form of a discount of up to 100% of tuition fees payable, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants. Assisted Places are open to all candidates and are available, subject to annual review, through to Year 6, with the possibility of extending through to Year 8.
The Governing Body of the school has set the level of fees per term for the financial year from April 2021 and these are detailed below.
Nursery (3+) Mornings only: £1,970
Nursery (3+) All Day (inc. lunch): £3,535
Pre Prep & Middle School: £3,630
Year 6: £4,380
Year 7 & 8: £4,470
St. Aubyn’s School is a charity and the whole income of the school is used for the benefit of its pupils. In accordance with our terms and conditions, the Governors reserve the right to increase fees within the next financial year in the light of any unforeseen circumstances.
The main points of entry to the school are the EYFS (Nursery/Reception) and at ages 7+ (Year 3) and 11+ (Year 7), with entry at other ages dependent upon vacancies occurring.
Entry to Nursery is non-selective by date of registration, therefore registrations should be made as soon as possible as waiting lists are always in excess of the places available. All prospective parents are expected to visit the School either before or after registration. This does not include Open Day. Offers will not be made unless parents have visited the School and met the Head.
A small number of places are available in Reception every year. When a vacancy arises, registered applicants are invited to an informal age-appropriate assessment which is designed to identify applicants who will be able to benefit fully from the balanced and well-rounded curriculum.
Places are also available in Year 3 and Year 7.
