A full term’s written notice is required by the first day of the term before a pupil is removed from the school.  In absence of such notice, the full term’s fees (‘fees in lieu’) must be paid.  The only exception to this rule applies to pupils in Prep 6 who will naturally be leaving the school at the end of that year.

There is a Registration Fee of £50.00 payable on application.  An Acceptance Deposit of £300 is payable as soon as a place is offered in order to secure that place.  This sum is refundable once your child leaves the school.

All cheques should be made payable to Notre Dame Prep School.

Please contact the Bursar if you require information on the planning and payment of school fees.

Education at Notre Dame Preparatory School extends beyond the classroom and normal school hours.  We offer a number of optional extras.  These include peripatetic, individual and group music tuition in addition to after school clubs, activities and care.  There is an additional charge for these extras.

Payment of Fees

Fees for each term, including the final term, must be paid in full, in advance, without deduction for deposits.  No interest is payable in respect of these deposits.
