Payments

Fees below are per term to be paid in advance, 1 month before the start of each term

Option of spreading payment of Fees on request

In order to make payments more convenient, on request, we would be happy to spread a term’s fees across 4 equal payments to be paid monthly one month in advance of the first 4 months in a term. For example, if the Spring term (starting January 19) the cost for 3 “All Days” is £2,800, we would spread the payments as follows:

  • £700 on 1st December 18
  • £700 on 1st January 19
  • £700 on 1st February 19
  • £700 on 1st March 19

Deposit

We will request a deposit to secure your child’s place, returnable against the final payment, of either:

  • £500 (if term fees are >£2000)
  • 25% of 1st term’s fee if term fees <£2000

How to work out my fees?

If you have a combination of sessions, you may want to know how to calculate the fees. Because there is a diminishing rate as the number of days booked increases it may be a bit tricky working out the fees. A few examples:

  1. 2 All Days, 1 School Day and 1 morning
    1. £2000 + £750 + £500 = £3,250
  2. 1 SD+, 1 SD, 1 PM, DT
    1. £875 + £800 + £400 + £250 = £2325

In the above examples, calculations are made by taking the longest sessions first and then adding in decreasing order the cost of the additional day of those subsequent sessions

  1. in first example, the cost of 2 days is £2000
  2. although the cost of 1 SD is £800, it is in fact the 3rd day of the booking and therefore it is the cost of the 3rd SD (£2350 – £1600) which is £750
  3. likewise 1 AM is £550 but the incremental cost of the 4th morning is £500
