Schedule of Fees 2016/2017

The following fee structure applies from September 2016:

Termly Tuition Fees

* This is the full fee cost which does not take account of funding for EYFE hours from the Local Authority . Reception pupils currently benefit from the EYFE funding until the term after they are 5 years old. If the EYFE funding were to be withdrawn, the School would need to charge parents the full termly fees.

Termly Extra Activities and Clubs

Dance 8 Sessions £58
Speech & Drama 8 Sessions £58
All Other Clubs (£7.25 per session) 8 Sessions £58

Other Charges and Optional Extras

Learning Support as requested or recommended in consultation with the Headteacher and Class Teacher per half hour Session £12
Milk (Optional) per term £20

 

Please note that there may be other sundry charges e.g. School outings, tickets for some events, but you will receive notification of the relevant charge to be made by separate correspondence.

If you wish your child to discontinue an optional extra (e.g.Milk, Learning Support, Speech and Drama, Dance) a term’s notice must be given in writing. These items automatically carry on into the new academic year, unless you have given notice before the end of the previous Summer term.

Please note that all School Fees are charged in advance: all extras and Clubs are charged in arrears.

Basic Charges

Registration: £60

This is a non-refundable fee to register your child with the School and cover administration.

School Deposit: £300

Please note that this will be charged when the offer of a place is made and confirmed. This amount will be held on account until the pupil leaves Windlesham School.  The amount is then offset (without interest) against the final invoice. This charge is non-refundable in the event of the child not starting the School.

Family Discounts

A 5% discount is applied to the second and subsequent children from the same family attending the School at the same time.

A charge of 4%  above base rate per annum will be applied to any outstanding balance of fees in arrears.

Bursaries

In accordance with Windlesham School’s ethos that all children should have access to affordable, private education, the School Governors have established a Bursary Fund. Families of children entering Year 1 or above have the opportunity to apply for bursaries valued at up to 50% of the basic cost of school fees. The number of bursaries available is limited; therefore not all applications are successful.
The process involves completion of a detailed statement of financial circumstances and provision of financial details such as proof of income and bank statements. All applications and information provided are treated with the strictest confidentiality. This information is considered by the Bursaries Committee and awards are made as appropriate. The decision of the Bursaries Committee is final. Any resulting awards are subject to annual review and are offered on the absolute understanding that fees due are paid on time.

Requests for statement of financial circumstances forms should be made to the Bursar in writing or via email to accounts@windleshamschool.co.uk

Early Years Free Entitlement

All 3 and 4 year old children resident in Brighton & Hove are currently entitled to Early Years Free Entitlement of 15 hours per week. This is arranged through the School and the number of free hours is indicated on each termly invoice. Further information is available from the Family Information Service on 01273 293545.

Friends of Windlesham Parents’ Association

A voluntary donation of £5.00 per child per term is charged on each invoice to support the many activities organised by the Friends of Windlesham throughout the year.

Parents are reminded that a full Term’s notice is required for their child’s withdrawal from the School.
