Payment Options

A term's fees may be paid in a lump sum payment before the first day of term or, subject to a separate contractual agreement for that term, in four monthly instalments. Fees should be paid by direct debit. If you suffer a downturn in your financial circumstances while your child is at school, please contact the Clerk and Treasurer at the earliest opportunity, who will be sympathetic and may be able to help.


Every child stays for lunch, which is compulsory and is included as part of the school fees as outlined above. Meals are prepared on the premises and we provide varied menus to accommodate all tastes and diets. You are welcome to discuss any special dietary requirements with the Catering Manager.

Personal Accident Insurance

All pupils are automatically covered by a policy administered by Marsh Insurance Brokers Limited. Any enquiries regarding the School’s Insurance Policies and cover should be made to Mrs D Hardman, Personal Assistant to the Clerk & Treasurer, on 01204 434751. You can learn more about the policy through these links:

Fee Protection Insurance

The School recognises that the payment of school fees represents a long-term financial commitment on the part of parents and understands that any number of entirely unpredictable events can interfere with the ability to pay school fees over such a long period. Death, long-term or critical illness, redundancy or business failure are all reasons why parents become unable to pay fees.

Both prospective and current parents are strongly urged to take measures to protect their ability to pay future school fees. Some parents may already have life cover, which would provide some capital in the event of their death, and a lesser number will have some form of income protection insurance. It is possible to protect fee payments against all of the above risks, and there are a number of different financial institutions which will offer products covering some or all of them. Parents may also wish to seek advice from an Independent Financial Adviser or from the School Fees Insurance Agency (free phone 0800 282 997) whose services are endorsed by the Independent Schools Council.

There are also a number of specialist companies who provide fee insurance schemes for parents. Two well known companies are HSBC Insurance Brokers and SFS Group. The School has no financial connection with either of those companies and does not specifically endorse their products. However, information regarding their products can be accessed by clicking on this link to the SFS Group web site.
