Pupils’ personal accident insurance scheme (optional)
The premium is £5 per term.
Pupils’ sickness absence insurance scheme (optional)
Under the school’s terms and conditions, there is no waiver of fees for pupil absence. However, the school offers an insurance scheme that makes available fee refunds if pupils are absent from school for five or more days due to illness or accident. The premium for the insurance is 0.63% of the net termly tuition fee. Further details and a participation reply slip may be downloaded here.
Payment of fees
School fees are charged in advance and, if paid termly, are due on or before the first day of term. Alternatively, fees may, by arrangement, be paid either in monthly instalments by direct debit or by depositing lump sums in advance.
In cases of late payment, the Governors reserve the right to make a surcharge, composed of simple interest calculated at a rate of one percent of the outstanding balance per month.
A reduction in fees (ten percent for a third child and fifteen percent for a fourth child) is available when three or more siblings are pupils at the school together. These reductions only apply to Kindergarten children if they are full-time.
Financial assistance (bursaries)
Very occasionally we offer a number of bursaries at the Junior Schools. Bursaries are means-tested. Bursaries can also be offered to pupils who might otherwise leave the school because of financial hardship.
