Accordion Termly Instalment Scheme

AUTUMN TERM 2019, SPRING TERM 2020 & SUMMER TERM 2020

 

The School offers parents the opportunity to pay a particular term's fees in four instalments by Direct Debit (our Termly Instalment Scheme) in contrast to the default position under our Parent Contract with you.

 

If you wish to pay a term's fees by instalment this will be subject to the Invoice Terms and Conditions (available on request from the Finance Office). These Invoice Terms and Conditions will operate as a variation of our Parent Contract with you so please retain this enclosed copy for your records.

 

Under our Termly Instalment Scheme a term's fees will be dealt with by a new separate agreement for that particular term. This Agreement will confirm your opportunity to pay fees for that term in four instalments and will be constituted by a letter sent to you in advance of the first payment (Termly Letter) with your fee invoice and the Invoice Terms and Conditions attached. Payment under the Termly Instalment Scheme will be made by Direct Debit (attached to the Termly Letter).

 

No service or interest charges apply to the Termly Instalment Scheme. Extras and incidental costs will continue to be payable on receipt in accordance with our Parent Contract.

 

The Termly Instalment Scheme is a discretionary arrangement offered on a termly basis to assist you with spreading the cost of school fees. The School reserves the right to withdraw or amend the terms of the Termly Instalment Scheme by giving you notice in writing before the beginning of any new school term. No agreement for the deferral of future fees will be valid unless it provides for no more than four instalments within a 12 month period from the date of the agreement.

In the instalment scheme there are three cycles corresponding to the three school terms. Each cycle consists of four collection by direct debit. The first cycle will cover the Autumn Term fees with collections at the beginning of August, September, October and November, the second the Spring Term (December, January, February and March), the third the Summer Term (April, May, June and July).

Once we have received your completed Direct Debit instruction, a process of approval and acceptance must take place with your bank. We will provide 10 days written notice of the first collection. Instructions for the first collection which are received too late to be collected at the beginning of the month will be collected after the 10 days written notice. Where direct debits are not met, there will be an administrative charge of £30 in respect of each failure. Your instruction will remain in force until you cancel it with the School, your Bank or Building Society or until the final Leaver’s invoice upon departure.
