In order to register and enrol a child for Claremont School it is necessary to complete an Application Form and return it to the school with a non-refundable Application Fee of £100 and a refundable Deposit of £300 (£400 for the Senior School). See separate conditions for the Nursery School. On receipt of an Application Form the school will check availability of places and write to the parent confirming whether or not it is possible to admit the child in question (subject to Taster Day).
The Deposit will be repaid only at the end of Year 8 or Year 11 LESS any deductions for unpaid extras, fees, interest etc.
Fees and Extras
Fees are due a term in advance and must be paid in full at the beginning of each term unless standing order arrangements have been agreed with the school prior to the start of term. Extras are due before the start of term to which they relate in order to guarantee their availability. Payment for “Extras” (Clubs, Activities, etc.) will only be accepted if fees have been paid in full or payment terms have been agreed. Common Entrance examination fees are payable by all Year 8 pupils without exception at the start of a pupil’s first term in Year 8 and GCSE examination fees are payable at the start of Year 11.
The School will charge interest at a rate of 5% per month on overdue accounts. Such interest charge is without prejudice to the School’s right to withdraw a place from a pupil whose fees are not paid before the first day of term.
Notice of Withdrawal
Notice in writing, before the first day of term, is required where it is intended that a pupil should leave at the end of that term otherwise, fees in lieu of notice for the following term will be due in full at the prevailing rate. Notice sent by email will not be accepted.
Similarly the school requires one full term's notice (as defined by the Claremont School Calendar) if a place in the school is accepted and subsequently not taken up. Otherwise, a term’s fees in lieu of notice is payable.
Pupils in the Pre-Preparatory department are expected to transfer to the Preparatory School at the appropriate time. Pupils are expected to remain at Claremont School until they have sat Common Entrance examinations at the age of 13. Deposits are automatically forfeited if a child leaves before completing Year 8 or Year 11.
Fees are not remitted for absence from School for any reason. Parents are advised to consider appropriate insurance to cover prolonged periods of absence from School.
The School does not accept responsibility for the loss or damage of any personal effects brought to the School.
It is the School’s policy to set fees and review and amend fee regulations on an annual basis. However, the School reserves the right to adjust fees and fee regulations at any time without advance notice.
