In common with all other independent schools, the cost of public examinations is re-charged to parents when students are in Year 10 and 11.

Terms and Conditions
Fees are payable termly in advance by cheque. Alternatively, fees can be paid by either termly or monthly standing order at no extra charge. Please contact the Bursar, Mr John Willis, if you require further information.

Fees are reviewed in September annually and the Trustees and Governors reserve the right to increase fees without notice, though every effort will be made to give current parents/guardians at least one term's notice of fee increases.

Accounts
Accounts are sent out at the end of each term and are due for payment by the first day of the next term. Interest at the rate of 2.5% per month (or part of a month) is charged on accounts not paid by the due date.

In the event that school fees remain outstanding and Blanchelande is forced to seek legal advice/assistance in effecting the recovery of such fees, the total amount owed to the school will be increased by 20% of the sum of those fees outstanding, it being agreed that this is a reasonable assessment of the loss to the College arising from the late or non-payment.

Notice of withdrawal
In the event of withdrawal of a pupil from the school, a full term’s notice in writing must be given to the Principal. In the absence of such notice, one term’s fees is payable in lieu.

A pupil who shows no progress in their studies, or who persistently disregards the authority of the College or is considered to exercise an injurious influence on their companions, will not be allowed to remain. 

The Principal reserves the right of refusing admission or recommending and requiring the withdrawal of any pupil whose presence in College is judged to be undesirable. The Governors will be involved in such decisions. The Principal may also suspend a pupil, if required.

No portion of fees is refundable if circumstances warrant the removal of a pupil by instruction of the Governors.
