Additional Tuition Fees:

Your child may be required to attend additional after school language courses if their ability is not good enough to access our curriculum. In such cases you can either attend our additional subject lessons or find tutoring outside of the school. The cost of our lessons is charged at 400 baht per hour per student for group classes, with private one-on-one lessons charged at 800 baht per hour.

Invoicing & Payment

Minimum Charge:

The minimum charge is one full term of tuition with the exception of the initial term of tuition when the student first arrives at the school. In such cases the tuition fee for that initial term will be calculated using the mid-term discount sheet. Following the initial first term any partial term leave will not be deducted for tuition fees for any reason and said term shall be treated and charged as a full term.

Tuition Fee Invoicing:

For all new students an invoice for tuition shall be issued after application acceptance and payable prior to starting school. For students already enrolled and receiving tuition at the school the invoice for the following term shall be issued shortly before half term holidays of the preceding term. For example, Term 2 invoice will be issued shortly before half term holiday of Term 1. 30-day credit terms shall be given to all students who are in good credit standing.

Term of Contract:

We have two distinction terms of contract. Firstly for tuition services, the length of time that the tuition services will be provided is clearly stated on the invoice you receive and ends of the last day of the period stated, this is renewed upon receiving a new invoice. This time period doesn’t have to match up with when a student is officially enrolled at our school. The term of contract for enrolment is separate, being enrolled means a student is part of our school. A student stays enrolled until they decide to leave or they finish Year 11, 12, or 13. While these two things – being enrolled and tuition services – are connected, they are different parts of how our school works and each has its own agreement.

Annual Payment:

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:

Normally tuition fees should be paid termly, however monthly payment plans are available. Due to the increase in administration any payment plan less than termly will be subject to a 3% administration fee. Under this plan, invoices will be issued at the start of the preceding term.

Late Payment Penalties:

These are automated systems run by our accounting software and cannot be reversed. Any invoice for any item or service that is not paid within the due date listed on the invoice will incur a late payment fee of 1.25% per month, calculated from invoice issue date and on the total invoice amount.

Additionally, late payment for tuition fees will incur a second charge of 1,000.- per week after the start to the term invoiced. This shall be invoiced to the parent on each Monday following the start of term.

If a tuition fee invoice is not fully paid within 15 days of the start of term, then the school reserves the right to suspend all services provided. Failure to fully pay tuition fee invoices within 30 days of the start of term will result in the student losing their place in the school and the security deposit will be lost.

Payments are first applied to the oldest invoice automatically. Keep this in mind when paying tuition fees, as it might mean one invoice isn’t fully paid, leading to late payment fees.

Notice of Withdrawal:

One full term’s notice, in writing to the School Administration, is required for any student leaving the school whether that be permanent or temporary removal. Notice must be received at the very latest by the first day of the term prior to the term that the student plans to leave the school. Verbal notice will not be accepted. Once notice has been received then resources will not be ordered for the following term. A request to reverse the decision may be lodged however a school position cannot be guaranteed and there may not be additional costs to special order resources. Consecutive notices will not be accepted.

Refunds:

Security deposits are refundable; no other fee (including tuition fee) or charge is subject to a refund. Refunds shall be made between 60 and 90 days after the end of the term in which notice was given. Any bank charges relating to the refund shall be deducted from the refund. All outstanding monies owed must be paid in full before the security deposit refund will be processed.
Tuition fees will not be refunded under any circumstances.

The security deposit is fully refundable under the following circumstances:

  • When a student has attended one full school year of tuition; and
  • When one full term notice has been given (Note: deposit will be lost if correct notice not given); or
  • Upon the graduation from the school (completion of Year 11, 12 or 13).

50% of the security deposit is refundable under the following circumstances:

  • When a student has attended one full term of tuition but less than one full year; and
  • When one full term notice has been given (Note: deposit will be lost if correct notice not given).

When a security deposit is refunded or is forfeited in lieu of sufficient notice, the student has effectively terminated tuition with the school and will forfeit any special discount rights they had. If the student wishes to re-enter the school, the student shall be liable for all fees as a new student.
