Registration and Refundable Deposits

Registration Fee

Refundable Deposit

A deposit is payable one year before entry to Vinehall, or upon registration for later entries. The deposit is held by the school as security and will be refunded with the final invoice, after the child has left, minus the last term’s disbursements and provided all financial commitments to the school have been met, and due notice (one full term) given, where appropriate. Currently the deposits are:

Boarders whose parents are not resident in the UK: £1,500
Day pupils in Reception – Year 8  £500
Pupils joining Nursery or Kindergarten £250 (an additional £250 is payable when they move into Reception)

The admission of a boy or girl is conditional on acceptance of the terms of the Parents Contract and of the rules published by the school from time to time. While every effort is made to inform parents about serious breaches of school rules, it must also be accepted that the Headmaster has complete discretion in the imposition of sanctions, including suspension or expulsion.

Fees

Fees are reviewed annually and are payable on or before the first day of each term. Late payment will result in a charge of 2.5% per month. Fees may be paid by monthly instalment by arrangement with an external provider. For details contact the Financial Manager.

Fees include tuition, text and exercise books and paper, materials for art, DT, science and carpentry. Day fees include lunch and break, but where a child stays late for activities, there is a charge for supper. Boarding fees are inclusive of all meals, local weekend trips and normal laundry.
