School fees

The deposit and admin fee must be paid prior to the child starting the school. The admin fee will only be charged if the child is offered a place at the school and the place is accepted by the parents. The deposit is held by the school and returned to the parent when the child leaves the school, provided a full term’s notice is given. Therefore, if a parent wishes to remove their child from the school, a full term’s notice has to be given in writing in order for the deposit to be returned. For example, if a child leaves the school in January, the deposit will only be returned if written notice is given to the school before September. If the school fees increase the deposit may increase.
