Fees are reviewed by the Governing Body on an annual basis and the fees for 2017/18 will not be set until around March 2017.

The Governing Body makes every effort to contain costs wherever possible, with the aim of keeping fee increases to a minimum.

The fee includes the cost of tuition, text and library books, scientific materials, games apparatus and personal pupil accident insurance cover.

Optional extras throughout the year may include transport, uniform, meals, public examination fees, and activities (such as private music or drama lessons, trips, visits and other extra-curricular activities).

 

Payment of Fees

Fees and Extras will be invoiced by the School through the Termly fees account.  They are due and payable in full either by cheque, the monthly payment plan provider, or direct bank transfer by the first day of each Term (details given on the invoice).  A late payment fee and interest is charged for fees which are received late.

Please see the Parent/School Contract standard terms and conditions for further information about the payment of Fees and Extras.

The Parent/School contract is available on request from the School Office.

 

Sibling Discounts on Fee Charges

A discount of 5% is currently given by the Governors to the second and subsequent children who are in attendance at the School simultaneously.

 

Childcare Vouchers

For the academic year 2016/17 Childcare Vouchers will be accepted for payment of that element of school fees qualifying as wrap-around care for pupils under the age 15.

Childcare vouchers can save parents working for employers who have signed up to the scheme over £1,000 a year as they enable you to pay for childcare out of your pre-tax and national insurance income,  reducing the national insurance contributions.

  Per term Element of fee payable in Vouchers
Reception to Prep 4   (ages 4 to 9) £ 2,932 £ 1,076
Prep 5 and Prep 6     (ages 9 to 11) £ 2,998 £ 1,101
Senior School (including Sixth Form) £ 4,192 £ 1,193

 

Notice Period

Wisbech Grammar School teaches children from Reception through to A’ levels in the Sixth Form. Pupils are normally expected to remain until the end of the Sixth Form.

In the event of a child leaving the School early (ie. before the completion of the Upper Sixth year in the Senior School), one full term’s written notice must be given to the Headmaster, otherwise a term’s fees in lieu of notice will be charged.

The Headmaster may, in his absolute discretion, require the removal of a pupil without a term’s notice if they consider that the circumstances warrant such an action. In this event, no claim shall arise for the remission or return of any portion of the fees payable for that term.

 

Insurance

Parents are advised to consider with their insurance broker or financial adviser the need to take out appropriate cover should redundancy or sickness prevent them from being able to pay School fees in the future.
