Fee Deposit

When a place is accepted a deposit equivalent to one term’s fee is payable to the School. Increases will be billed annually in the Autumn Term bill in order to maintain the deposit at a level equal to the current termly fee. The deposit will be returned after the child’s final term at the School and any outstanding fees and other charges have been paid.

Notice of Withdrawal

Written notice of the removal of a student must be received by the Director of Finance and Operations on or before the first day of term at the end of which it is to take effect. In the absence of proper notice, the school fee for the following term must be paid and the fee deposit will be set against any liability arising under this paragraph.

Application Fee

There is a non-returnable Application Fee of £100 per child (at all entry points) payable upon submission of the Application Form.

Fees are generally revised at the start of each school year and take account of changing costs.
