If for any reason there is a difficulty in paying fees we highly recommend that you contact the school immediately, wherever possible a payment plan will be considered and put into place. By delaying payment, you will be subject to interest charges and late fees and; by not communicating, their child eventually losing their place at the school.

An additional discount applies to tuition fees when a full school year is paid. This can only be utilised when Term 1 tuition is due and may not be utilised if a student joins the school during the school year.
Less Than Termly Payment
