School Fees

We have once again kept our fee increases as low as possible, to help parents who are finding it increasingly difficult to meet all their expenses in our economic climate.
Fees are payable strictly in advance for each new month, or each new term, beginning on the 1st January. Where fees have not been received by the 7th of each month interest will be charged as stated in our conditions of enrolment. Should fees however be more than one month in arrears, The Valley School reserves the right to enforce the enrolment agreement, and the child will not be allowed to return to school until the fee are paid up to date. No exceptions will be made.

These payment options are only available to children attending the full school year. If children enrol at any other time during the school year, they will be required to pay on the 1 December as well.
