Additional information

  • All fees are due and payable on or before the first day of the term. Late payment charges may be applied.
  • 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.

  • A personal accident insurance is also included which covers your son 24 hours a day, 365 days a year world-wide, whilst a pupil at the school, against permanent disability or death. Should you require any further information contact the school office*.
  • Failure to pay fees may result in the pupil’s place being suspended or withdrawn.
