Our Fees

Running any school costs money, but it costs much more to provide pupils with a high-quality education.

We provide our pupils with one of the best educations in Zambia. In 2020, this will cost us K950,000 in running costs (power, food, repairs, etc), equipment, books and salaries.

We run the school as a charity, so there aren’t any owners trying to make money for themselves from educating children. Instead, the school has friends overseas who cover half our costs. They give so we can keep our fees as low as possible.

This means you can buy a Mukwashi education for your child which is worth three times the price you actually pay.

We charge fees per week, and you pay for the whole term in advance at the start of every term.

 Our fees for 2020


Our fees for the September – December term are below. The fees for Grades 7, 9 & 12 are lower due to their short last term.

Fees must be paid in full at the start of term. However, parents paid monthly may make a signed, formal agreement with the school to pay their fees in two monthly instalments; and parents paid fortnightly may make a signed, formal agreement to pay their fees in four fortnightly instalments.
