1. For all communication relating to fees please contact The Bursar, Abigail Hercules 020 7251 2284 email@example.com
The Headteacher is not in a position to discuss finances
2. Fees invoices for the coming Term are emailed during the last week of each current Term to allow sufficient notification of payment due
3. Unless an alternative agreement has been made, in writing with the Bursar, both parental contacts will receive the invoice, to the email address held on file.
4. We comply fully with the Money Laundering Regulations 2017
5. You are encouraged to pay by direct debit or by electronic transfer into the school's bank account
6. Payments must be received from a UK bank account
7. We do not accept cash payments above £100
8. We do not accept cheques
9. Fees are to be paid BEFORE the first day of Term, by one of the following methods:
a. Our preferred method of payment is Direct Debit. Please choose one of three Direct Debit Schemes (Annually/ 9 instalments/ Termly). Please submit completed Direct Debit forms (available from the Office and the Website) to the Bursar at least 21 days in advance of the first payment, to allow adequate time for BACS paperwork to be processed and instalments to be calculated.
b. BACS transfer:

Please remember to include the bank fees incurred for any form of electronic transfers in your total and reference your child’s name

11. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that their fees are paid on time. We will endeavour but do not guarantee to issue reminders concerning lack of payment of fees.
12. If your invoice has gone astray, please contact the Bursar for a reminder, in order to avoid a surcharge.
13. With regret, the details of outstanding payments due, from families who ‘disappear’, may be brought to the attention of a debt collector.
