Payment of fees is due on or before the first day of term, and can be made by the following methods:
• Over the Counter- At your bank using the remittance slip attached to your fee bill.
• Internet Banking - Using the bank detail on the remittance slip. Please ensure that you quote your child’s account reference or we will be unable to process your payment, which may result in you receiving bill reminders.
• Debit Card - Please call the Fee Administrator with your card details.
• Credit Card - Please call the Fee Administrator. Please note that this service carries a charge of 2.5% of the total amount paid.
• Monthly Fees in advance by Standing Order - The full annual fee can be paid by standing order in 12 equal monthly instalments starting from 1st June 2012 to 1st May 2013 and will then be reviewed and updated in June 2013. This allows the School to accept monthly payments with no additional charges to you.
For illustration purpose below is an example based on the current academic year's fees (which will be reviewed in March):
Current Fees for academic Year 2011-2012 Form III and above = £14,538.00
Monthly payments to be made from 1st June 2011 to 1st May 2012 = £1,211.50
If you are interested in arranging payment by standing order please contact Mrs Nina Sweeney, the Fee Administrator, by e-mail on email@example.com
before 1st June 2012 and she will forward the necessary paperwork to set up your standing order.
Wherever possible please avoid bringing cheques in to school or giving a cheque to your child to hand in. Please use other alternative methods of payment.
Insurance and Payment Fee Schemes
Whilst the School takes all proper steps to safeguard pupils’ personal effects while on school premises, no liability whatsoever can be accepted for any loss or damage to them. Parents are therefore recommended to check that their own insurance policy covers articles taken to school and, if this does not do so, to arrange for the policy to be appropriately extended.
A Personal Accident Insurance Scheme is included in the fees. The cover under this scheme is world wide and continues during the holiday periods and also whether the accident occurs inside or outside the School. The Scheme in principle covers accidents that are not occasioned by negligence. The School holds full Public Liability Insurance cover in respect of pupils, staff, parents and visitors.
Parents’ attention is drawn to the existence of fee payment schemes linked to life insurance policies. Such schemes offer advantages, particularly if taken out whilst children are young.
Notice of Removal
A full term’s notice in writing must be given to and received by the Headmaster, before a pupil leaves the School, gives up an extra subject or changes from boarding to day. Otherwise a term’s fees will be charged in lieu. Parents are also reminded that they must give a full term’s notice in writing before ending any special tuition given by visiting teachers.
Every effort will be made to give a term’s notice of fee increases; however, the School reserves the right to alter the fees and charges at any time. Fees are usually adjusted once a year in September.
