Financial Arrangements

All fees are payable in advance and must be received by the Bursar, at the School, on or before the first day of each term.  Alternatively, payment can be made by monthly or termly direct debit, and details are available from the Bursar’s Office.  Interest will be charged on any fees remaining unpaid one week after the start of term and continue until such a time as the amount due is paid in full. 

Extra charges for examination fees, educational outings and other incidental expenses will be charged at the end of the term in which they are incurred.  School uniform is an extra charge and should be purchased from our School Shop, or online through their website.

Registration fees are not refundable, but deposits paid prior to a pupil joining will be refunded against the pupil’s final bill.  The final bill is that for the extras incurred during the pupil’s final term, as distinct from the bill for the last of the tuition fees, which is rendered at the beginning of that term.

Details of the Composition Fees Scheme whereby savings can be achieved by the payment of a lump sum in advance are available from the Bursar.

A full term’s notice in writing is required before the removal of a pupil or the change of status from boarding to day, otherwise a full terms fees will be payable.  The School will not accept notice for boarders in the Fifth, Lower or Upper Sixth to change their status to day pupils at half-term in the Summer Term.

A term’s fees will be required from parents of a pupil who, having been formally entered and accepted for admission to the School for a particular term is subsequently withdrawn either before or at the commencement of that term.

As fees are not refundable in the event of absence from School, School Fees Protection Insurance * can be arranged to enable such fees to be reimbursed when a pupil is absent because of illness.  BUPA cover for pupils is also available.

All pupils are included in the HSBC Personal Accident Insurance Scheme *.

The attention of parents is drawn to the fact that the insurance policies of the School do not cover the loss of pupils’ effects. Parents’ householders’ comprehensive or all risks policies should be suitably extended to give adequate cover.
