Termly Fees

The fees for each term are payable either on or before the first day of term. For more information on fees, please refer to our terms and conditions.

Please read about our optional and compulsory insurance policies.

Monthly Interest Free Payment Scheme

We offer an interest free monthly payment option to our parents. For ease and simplicity, we have decided to offer our monthly payment option during the first three months of each term; this means that fees for each term should be paid in three equal instalments during the first three months of the relevant term. For more information, please contact our Finance department.
