The day pupil fee includes a daily choice of hot or cold lunch, plus dessert or fresh fruit. All meals are prepared in our own kitchens and are of a very high standard.
Fees are payable in advance, on or before the first day of each term. Pupils entering after half term will be charged half fees for that term. However, no other reductions can be made for late starters.
The Governors reserve the right to charge interest on late payments and to ask for pupils to be withdrawn if a settlement has not been made by half term. Parents wishing to pay through instalments can contact the Bursar to obtain details of how to do this by calling 020 8467 0256 or emailing [email protected].
While two (or more) siblings are at the School, a reduction of 10% is made in respect of the fees of the younger sibling(s). This reduction is not available to siblings in receipt of the Early Years Grant.
A deposit of £1,000 is payable for Prep and Senior entry for day pupils joining Farringtons and £500 of this shall be credited against the first term's invoice. There is no additional deposit required when moving from our Prep School to Senior School.
For full boarders, weekly boarders and pupils whose residence is usually outside of the UK, the deposit is £13290.00. All deposits are payable on parents' acceptance of an offer of a place in the School.
The deposit is retained until after the final term of schooling when it is refunded to the parents, subject to the settlement of any outstanding charges. The deposit is forfeited if the child fails to take up the place for any reason. Fees are payable for the first term even if a child fails to take up the place, unless one term's notice is given confirming that the place is no longer required.
Specialist tuition for most instruments is available, as is preparation for LAMDA (speech and drama). These are charged at cost and will be added to the end of term account. Additional tuition for students with a specific learning need is not charged for.
Educational visits and weekend activities will be added to the end of term account for Boarders. For day pupils, these are to be paid for in advance by parents, as advised by staff, in advance of the activity.
