Payment of Fees

Four options are available for the payment of fees and they are as follows:

  • Payment by the first day of each term for the full amount shown on the invoice.
  • Payment by standing order through the bank, available for children attending nursery on a full-time basis only.

(Requests for this method of payment to be made through the Finance Dept)

  • By Credit/Debit Card – Please contact the Finance Dept. on 01772 713630/719937 (option 3). Credit card payments will incur an additional administration charge. Please see the Finance Dept. for current costings.
  • Payment on a monthly basis by presenting post dated cheques divided equally between the months of that term, i.e.

Autumn Term – 4 equal payments

Spring Term – 3 equal payments

Summer Term – 3 equal payments


The first payment is to be dated the first day of the term, followed by post-dated cheques for the 15th of each of the following months. The post-dated cheques must be submitted with the first payment.

Four weeks notice must be given should you wish to withdraw your child otherwise four weeks fees will be payable in lieu of notice.

Please note there will be no reduction in fees should you choose to decrease your child’s sessions at any time during the course of an academic year, for whatever reason.
