Fees are payable in advance, at the beginning of each term. Interest and charges will be applied to overdue balances.
A full term’s notice or payment of a term’s fees in lieu is required before the removal of a child.

Payment terms

Extras are invoiced in arrears at the end of each term.

Registration Fee & Deposit

The registration fee is payable on application to register your child and is non-refundable. The deposit is payable on acceptance of a place and is refunded on completion of your child’s time at the school, subject to all fees and charges having been paid.

Nursery Sessions

Nursery Fees are charged by the session and parents may choose a mixture of full days and half days. Parents are required to commit to a full term of sessions.

Childcare Vouchers

Childcare vouchers may be used to pay for nursery fees, school fees prior to a child’s 5th birthday, holiday club and after school activities. We regret that we are not able to accept vouchers in payment for school fees after a child’s fifth birthday, or for trips during school hours.

Early Years Funding

Hatherop Castle School is registered for Early Years funding from Gloucestershire County Council (GCC), which allows parents to of children aged 3-5 to receive the first fifteen hours of childcare free. Please note that the School does not accept children for only part of a session and the full session must be paid for by either GCC or parental funding and not a mix of both. The most effective way to make use of GCC funding, therefore, is one full day and two mornings per week.

We are normally able to claim Early Years Funding for children in Reception for any terms which commence prior to the child’s 5th birthday.

Additional sessions and lunch, which are not covered by GCC funding are invoiced in arrears.

Bursaries and Discounts

To apply for a means tested bursary please contact the School Admissions team.

A sibling discount for third child onward is 25% off the fees.
