WHEN PAYING YOUR SCHOOL FEES IT IS VITAL THAT YOU REFERENCE PAYMENT WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME


Fees are invoiced at the end of each term and are payable by the first working day of the following term.  We appreciate that finding the money for a full term’s fees can be difficult and offer a variety of payment methods.

Our preferred method of payment is by transfer to our bank account using on-line banking, details of which can be found on the invoices and also obtained from the Bursar.

Payment by Debit card, by telephoning the Bursar with card details.  There is no charge for payment by debit card. 

We cannot accept payment of fees in cash, by credit card or by cheque.

School fees include all tuition, most stationery and weekly sports activities, whether held at school or off-site.

Fees do not include text books, external examination fees, school trips, some workshops, optional hot lunches and extra-curricular music tuition.

There is a late payment charge of £30 for fees that are not paid by the first day of each term.

Advance Full Year Payment of Fees

The school also offers a discount of £150 to parents who wish to pay a year’s fees in advance by the first day of the academic year in September.

Monthly Payment Scheme

We also offer a monthly payment scheme which would need to be set up by monthly standing order. 

There is a charge for using monthly payments, currently at £100 per term which needs to be included when calculating your monthly payments, [this is subject to change], the monthly payment must be made by 14th of each month.  

Terms and Conditions for monthly payments

For parents who pay monthly the first instalment for the new academic year is due in July for the Autumn Term and ends in June of the Summer Term.

The same amount will be taken from your bank account each month.

If you set up a standing order later than this, payments already due must be made with the first payment.

Should a standing order be returned unpaid, an administration charge of £30 will become payable, and you will be required to make up the payment within 7 days. Payments made after 14th of each month are subject to a £20 late payment fee.

Should more than two standing order payments be returned within the same year, you will forfeit your right to use the scheme and will be required to bring your account up to date immediately.

The payment scheme does not roll forward to the next academic year.

Discounts available

Fees are generally increased with effect from each Autumn Term. Parents are notified of the new rate at the end of the Spring Term, and are invited to pay any number of terms in advance by the end of Summer Term to secure these at the pre increased rate. 

For families with 2 daughters, we offer 5% discount against the younger sister’s fees. For families with 3 or more daughters at the school, a discount of 15% will be applied against the fees of the youngest student for the period of time three sisters are at school.

If you recommend a friend to start at Park School, you will receive a credit note of £250 to be used towards your fees, once the friend has started a second term at the school.

Please be assured that details of your payment history will only be known to the Bursar and Head Teacher as well as the Governing Body.  Your daughter’s place at the school is in jeopardy if you fail to meet your contractual obligations with respect to payment of fees. 

Our After School Club runs daily from the end of school up to 5.00pm allowing students of all ages to wait in a warm, supervised environment where they may read or do homework or private study. The cost is £7.50 per night which includes a drink and snack.  Students may attend on an ad-hoc basis, once a week, or every night as required.

In cases of genuine financial difficulty, we will try to assist, it is however, important that you contact the Bursar or Head Teacher immediately and keep us informed.

We offer a selection of Bursaries to parents of all students. These are means tested, based on family income. However all circumstances surrounding the student and her family are taken into account.

All Bursaries are awarded for a period of one academic year, although families are required to reapply each Spring.

You are also welcome to contact the Bursar with specific questions.
