The admission of a pupil is conditional upon acceptance of these Terms and Conditions and the rules of the School. Whilst every effort will be made by the School to inform parents of serious breaches of School rules before any action is taken the Headmaster has complete discretion to impose sanctions, including suspension or expulsion.
The Headmaster may require the withdrawal at any time of a pupil whose conduct or effort is, in his opinion unsatisfactory or if he considers that such withdrawal is in the best interests of the pupil or of the School.
Fees and Extra Expenses
Fees are payable in advance of the first day of each quarter. Interest and administration costs will be charged on any unpaid balance.
The School reserves the right to raise the fees without notice but will endeavour to give as much notice as possible of any increase to the person or persons responsible for the payment of the fees.
The Headmaster reserves the right to suspend a pupil from attending School when fees are unpaid.
In the event of the expulsion or exclusion of a pupil or the withdrawal of a pupil without due notice, there will be no refund of fees for the balance of the quarter in which the expulsion, exclusion or withdrawal occurs.
There will be no remission of fees on account of absence.
Parents and/or guardians have a joint and several liability for the payment of fees and other money due to the School.
Withdrawal of a Pupil by Parents
The education of a pupil at the School may be terminated by:
a full quarter’s notice in writing from the pupil’s parent, or person with responsibility for the fees where different such notice to be received by the Headmaster before the first day of the pupil’s final quarter.
