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. The School reserves the right to charge a late payment administration charge (‘LPAC”) of £25 if an invoice or other  additional charge invoice amount owed to the school is not received on or before the due date.

A further charge of £25 will be levied if the fee remains unpaid for a further four (4) weeks after the parents / billpayer is notified of the first LPAC and every four weeks thereafter that the debt remains unpaid.

For all overdue amounts greater than £500, The School reserves the right to charge interest at the Bank of  England Base Rate +3%. This interest will be calculated on a daily interest basis from the first day the balance was due until the date the debt is paid.

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 £235, 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.

Monthly Interest Free Payment Scheme

We offer an interest free monthly payment option to our parents. For ease and simplicity, we have decided to offer our monthly payment option during the first three months of each term; this means that fees for each term should be paid in three equal instalments during the first three months of the relevant term. Please contact the school accountant for more details.

For children 5 and under, payment can be made by monthly instalments when paying via the HMRC Tax Free Childcare Payment scheme.
