Terms and Conditions

Payment of Fees:

Payment of Fees is in full by the first day of term. Fee accounts are prepared at the end of each term for payment by the start of the following term by bank transfer or by cheque direct to the School.

Pre-paid (Composition) Fees Scheme:

The School operates a Pre-paid (Composition) Fees Scheme, by which parents can pay a lump sum in advance for the School fees (minimum two years) thereby receiving a discount. A quote can be obtained from the Finance Bursar (dab@roedean.co.uk).

Increase of Fees:

The School will give parents one term’s notice of fee increases; however, under some circumstances it may be necessary to review fees at other times. Should a parent or guardian wish to withdraw a pupil as a result of such an increase, a term’s notice must still be given.

Overdue Fees:

A surcharge will be made on accounts not received by the first day of each term. The current rate of surcharge is Bank Base Rate plus 4%.

We will also recover any administrative fees associated with any debt and pass on the costs of any debt recovery agents that we may instruct.

Registration Fee:

£150 is payable with the application, and is non-refundable.

Acceptance Deposit:

For UK-based parents, a deposit of half a term’s fee is paid to accept the offer at Roedean.

For parents living or working outside the UK, a deposit of one term’s fee is paid to accept the offer at Roedean.

All deposits are refunded (without interest) after the pupil has left the School and after all fees and ‘extras’ have been settled. If the pupil does not take up the accepted place, the deposit is non-refundable.

Charges for Extra Subjects/Activities:

Written permission of the parent or guardian is required before a pupil can be accepted for tuition in an extra subject/activity.

Since payment has to be made to the teachers concerned, subjects/activities may only be terminated at the end of the term, for which half of one term’s notice in writing is required. If a subject/activity is discontinued during a term, the whole of that term’s charge will be payable. Full details of subjects/activities offered are published separately.

Where pupils require private academic coaching, this is a matter for separate written contract between the parents and the School.

Notice of Withdrawal:

Once a place in the School has been accepted, at least one full term’s notice of withdrawal of a pupil must be given to the Headmaster in writing, irrespective of whether the pupil has joined the School or not. If the required notice is not given, fees for the next term will be charged.

Requests for changes of status from day to boarding or vice versa also require a full term’s notice.

If a pupil has been a boarder for the Autumn and Spring terms, the same fee will be applicable for the Summer term irrespective of whether there is a change of status to a lower charge category.
