Payment of Fees
College fees must be paid before arrival at the College. The fees can be paid in full, half-yearly or by termly instalments.
For payment of DAY STUDENT FEES please contact the Admissions Office to discuss your payment options.
Tuition and accommodation is dependent upon the fees for the relevant term being paid in full. If payment of the relevant term’s fees has not been made in full on the due date by the Fee Payer, the College will charge interest at the rate of 1% per week on the outstanding balance until it is paid. If payment becomes overdue the College reserves the right to suspend or cancel tuition and/or accommodation. The student may be prevented from sitting examinations or the results of examinations and/or College references or other information may be withheld where fees remain unpaid in whole or part.
Method of Invoicing
College fee invoices will be sent to the Fee Payer by electronic communication & post enrolment via the Parent Portal in all instances. It is the responsibility of the Fee Payer to update the College if their contact details change. If an initial communication with the Fee Payer is not responded to in the event of late payment, the College management reserve the right to discuss outstanding payments with the student(s) affected.
Accepted Methods of Payment
All fees are due for payment in GBP. We regret we cannot accept payment in other currencies. To avoid possible losses caused by variation in the rate of exchange, cheques and transfers must be made in pounds sterling. Please note that the College will not be responsible for bank charges incurred in the transfer of fees. Where these are not paid at the time of issue they will be added to the next student account invoice.

We are happy to take debit and credit card payments. Please note that card payments may be subject to the charges that are levied to us, which we are allowed to recharge. These charges will include our administration charge and will be shown on your end of term invoice as a retrospective expense. For Corporate cards, these will include the Merchant Service Charge, plus any additional processing charges, including International Card usage fees. UK Corporate cards will incur a 3% charge. For non-UK cards, the administration charge will be 2% on personal cards and 3% on Corporate cards. AMEX cards will be charged at 2.5%.
Please note that JCB/Diner cards can be taken but are subject to much higher charges, so these are not recommended as financially beneficial forms of payment for you. Details on charges for these cards can be made available on request.
Review of Fees
Fees are normally reviewed annually during the Spring Term for implementation the following September, but the Directors reserve the right to alter the fees as necessary to reflect changing circumstances, and will give as much notice as possible.
Notice of Termination
Parents must give a full term’s notice in writing to the Principal before withdrawing a student from the College or a term’s fees in lieu of notice must be paid.
If a student requires a visa to enter UK, but is unable to meet visa requirements, and proper reason given to the College, the Enrolment Deposit and all other money paid to the College will be refunded (minus the Admissions Administration Fee of £200). Only in such circumstances will refunds be made.
These will be charged retrospectively with regular termly or half-yearly invoices and will include: Text books, examination fees, UCAS application fees, co-curricular excursions and activities, stationery, lost keys, extra tutorials, damages caused by students and extra cleaning that may be required to rooms vacated by students.
THE COLLEGE DOES NOT OPERATE A SYSTEM OF COMPLIMENTARY AIRPORT TRANSFERS FOR STUDENTS.
The Enrolment Deposit cannot be used by the student to pay for personal expenses or cover shortfall in fees. The Enrolment Deposit cannot be refunded until the final account has been settled in full. Only once a student’s account has been fully settled will any remaining deposit funds be returned to the student or Fee Payer, as applicable, within 42 days after the end of the student’s course of studies. Advice will be sought from the Fee Payer as to the account details to be credited.
Parents should ensure that adequate insurance is arranged to cover all the personal belongings of their child on their Household Effects Insurance or the College can arrange for this through Marsh Insurance and the termly amount, currently £11 per term, added to the bill (Please advise the Admission Office if you wish to ‘opt in’ for this insurance). Fee Payers should be aware that College fees do not include private medical insurance.
The College regrets that it cannot extend credit or loan money to students. Pocket money can be given to a student provided this is lodged with the College in advance. It is not necessary for students to have their own bank account but if parents would like them to have an account, the College can assist using HSBC or Barclays Bank
