Payment MethodsA bill is produced at the end of each term. This will contain tuition and examination fees for the following term and any extras accrued during the term of production. Fee bills are payable by cheque or bank transfer on or before the first day of term although an increasing number of parents prefer to pay by direct debit. There is no additional administration charge for paying by Direct Debit and either the total due is transferred on the first day of term or fees can be collected in three (3) equal monthly instalments for each terms bill. "Extra" charges are collected in full with the first fee instalment each term.
The School operates a capital payment scheme for parents who wish to pay a lump sum in advance and full details are available from the Finance Department.
