payment of fees
Fees are due on or before the first day of each term. Termly bills are sent by email. Fees do not include any external examination fees, examples of which include basic tests, GCSE and A-level examinations.
Parents are asked to choose to settle their account by direct debit or direct payment into our bank account. Please note that the Foundation is not able to accept cash for payment of fees.
A reduction is made for brothers or sisters attending a *Foundation school concurrently. For the first child the full fee is payable; there is a reduction of 5% each for the second and third sibling rising to 10% each for the fourth and subsequent sibling. Sibling discount only applies whilst there are two or more children attending the Foundation schools* and excludes children joining Little Crackers after 1 September 2015.
Interest is charged for late settlement of fees at a rate of 6% per annum or part thereof. Letters relating to late payment of fees are charged at £10.
During periods of optional leave no consideration shall be given to remission of any fees. Those who pay a deposit to secure a place, subsequently turning it down before admission, will forfeit the deposit in its entirety. The school requires a term's notice of a pupil's departure from school; this requirement also applies for pupils joining the school. Parents should ensure they are familiar with the school's terms and conditions.
