There is an initial registration fee (non- refundable) and a deposit of £700 payable
on acceptance of a place. Schools fees are payable at the beginning of each term
or at the beginning of the month every three months. School fees are to be paid either
by bank transfer and/or childcare vouchers, or by cheque. Fees are due by the first
day of each term without fail. Failure to pay fees on time will result in the loss
of your child’s place and loss of all fees paid.
Please note if fees are to be paid by cheque they should be with The Pier Head Preparatory
School at least a week before to allow for clearance time.
Fees received later than the first day of term will result in a charge of £25 for
dishonored cheque's will incur a charge of £15
Starting Mid Term
If you start midterm you will be charged the full fee.
Parents who arrive later than the agreed departure of their children will be charged
a late fee of £5 for every ten minutes that you are late. You should arrive to school
on time to avoid disturbing classes.
The school is open for 49 weeks of the year closing for two weeks over Christmas
and all bank holidays.

one school terms notice will be charged the full terms fee for the following term
