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.

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.
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 in certain circumstances half termly or 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.
