Annual tuition fees will be charged in advance in three equal instalments at the beginning of Terms 1, 2 and 3, and are payable by the last Friday in February, May and August respectively.
Facilities are offered for parents to pay fees by BPAY from their cheque or savings account or by MasterCard or Visa via the School’s website.
A cost recovery fee of 0.8% will be charged for credit card payments.
Pay by BPAY
For security reasons payment in cash is not accepted.
Fees must be paid in full by the due date as per paragraph 1 above, unless the Trustees in their absolute discretion and in special circumstances, agree to waive this requirement.
If tuition fees for a boy remain unpaid after the relevant due date the boy may not continue to attend the School except with the permission of the Trustees.
In order to recover associated administration costs, overdue accounts will also attract an administration charge of $100 per month if fees remain unpaid after the due date.
(a) Before the removal of a boy from the School one full term’s notice in writing must be given to the Headmaster. Where a boy is removed and notice has been given in accordance with the above provision, the total fee charged for the boy’s period at the School in that calendar year will be equal to the number of terms attended in that calendar year times one quarter of the annual tuition fee. In cases where adequate notice has not been given, an additional fee equal to one quarter of the annual tuition fee will be charged.
(b) If a boy’s parents or guardians wish to withdraw him temporarily from the School, the Headmaster may, in his absolute discretion, hold open the boy's place for as long as he thinks fit. Fees shall be payable in such cases for absences longer than a term. Full term fees are payable for absences of less than a term. One full term’s notice should accompany a request for temporary withdrawal unless the reasons for the request have arisen unexpectedly.
After notice is received confirming the admission of a boy to either College Street or a Preparatory School, normally during the year preceding the year of entry, an Entrance Fee equal to one sixth of the annual tuition fees in Form I (i.e. $4,805) is payable unless he is a Scholar.
