Fees Structure

Fee Structure 2020 – 2021

Whilst many schools have increased their fees for 2020-21, Bellevue Education and Holmwood House have decided to keep our fee level in line with last year in light of the unprecedented circumstances due to Covid-19.

Important Information

A term’s notice in writing is required before the removal of a child; otherwise, a term’s fees may be charged in lieu.

Reduced fees are charged for a third child and subsequent children, while they are attending Holmwood House at the same time (please request further details).

The boarding prices include dinner, bed & breakfast, supervised activities and laundry for those boarding on particular nights. (e.g. those boarding on a Tuesday night will have their kit washed for matches the following day.)  Please note that 48 hours’ notice is required if cancelling a boarding night, otherwise you will be charged for that night.

Boarding: please note if your child does not regularly stay after 4pm, we can arrange for them to stay as part of the activity and prep programme which carries a small charge of £15. Alternatively, you can collect your child at the usual and return them in time for supper at 5.50pm.  If your child is due to board, we will automatically assume that they will be staying as part of the activities programme unless you advise us otherwise.

Payment of fees

Fees are payable termly in advance on the first day of term.  Payment may be made by Monthly Direct Debit, Credit Card, Termly Direct Debit, electronic transfer/internet banking.

Delays in the payment of fees are punitive to the majority who pay promptly and interest at 2% per month or part thereof will be levied on all unpaid balances.

The school reserves the right to exclude a pupil until such time as the fees have been paid.

Learning Support

Individual learning support tuition incurs an extra termly charge of £215, or multiples thereof, based on the number of lessons per week. Parents will always be consulted before extra tuition is provided.

Music Tuition

Individual music tuition is provided by the peripatetic music teachers who are self-employed and invoice separately for their services. If an instrument is hired from the school, a charge of £40 per term will be made.
