In addition, we accept payments using the Government’s Tax-Free Childcare scheme and most childcare voucher plans, as per their eligibility criteria and rules.

Fees for each term are payable in full on or before the first day of that term.  As per the current terms and conditions one full term’s notice is required by the first day of term or a term’s fee in lieu of notice is payable. Notice must be in writing and addressed to the Head.
