Admissions Information

To secure a place on our waiting list a Registration Fee of £200 is required. This fee is non-refundable.

Should families leave within the trial period offered (4 weeks for Kindergarten and 2 weeks for all other classes), a £200 fee is required per week to cover the cost of education provided and associated school expenses.

One full term’s notice is required for the withdrawal of a child from school. This notice should be received by the School in writing on or before the first day of term. A full terms fees are payable if insufficient notice is received. We reserve the right to withhold your deposit if this is not upheld.

A refundable deposit is required upon acceptance of a child’s place at the school. The deposit amount is £2,000 per child for kindergarten and £3,000 per child in classes 1- 8. This is deducted from the fees due for the final term that a child is at the School, provided the appropriate notice of leaving has been received in writing. It is non-refundable prior to the child starting at School.

Fees received late will be charged at 10% extra on the term cost. Notices of late charge payments required will be issued within the first week of term.

Children attending Kindergarten who are age 4 or older at the start of term will be billed for a minimum of 5 days attendance per week.

Should there be a requirement for additional support for a child, we will work closely with parents to ensure that provision is in place to provide this. This will be assessed on an individual basis and there may be additional fees required in order for us to adequately meet the child’s needs.

We accept payment via childcare vouchers.

A sibling discount of 5% is offered for families with more than one child attending. This discount applies to the second child and subsequent children in a family.

We operate the universal early years funding entitlement for 3 and 4 year olds.
