Additional Charges (extras)

The College offers opportunities for pupils to travel; while highly recommended for confidence-building and cultural awareness, off-island trips are voluntary. Trips may change from year to year but recent year group residential trips have included:

  • Year 5: Jersey
  • Year 6: England
  • Year 7: France
  • Year 8: PGL, England
  • Year 9: Spain
  • Year 10: London
  • Sixth Form: academic enrichment trips eg Wetlands Centre (Biology) or Peter Vardy conference (Religious Studies).

Many trips take place during Activity Week in June; costs vary dependent on choice of activities and payment plans are arranged to spread out the cost.

Students may begin the Duke of Edinburgh Award from Year 9. Silver and Gold expeditions take place in spectacular regions of England and Wales and costs are provided by Mr Elward (Vice-Principal and DofE Coordinator).

For Food Technology in the senior school, while a charge for ingredients is not currently levied, students are required to bring in certain of their own ingredients. (Some optional extra-curricular clubs and activities have an additional charge where there are overheads.)

Please note that this is not an exclusive list: the College tries to balance providing valuable opportunities with sensitivity to family financial planning. Full time staff do not receive additional remuneration for running trips.

Public examination charges

Examination fees are levied by examination boards, and school fees are inclusive of these. However, additional costs, including an administrative fee, will be recharged to parents for: a second sitting of an examination; additional invigilation costs incurred due to a special educational need; an appeal/remark.

Please contact the Exams Officer, Mrs Clare Chilton, if you require further information. Email: chiltonc@blanchelande.sch.gg

Learning Support lessons may be organised through the Head of Learning Support. The current charge for one-to-one lessons is £30.50 per thirty minutes.

 

Sixth Form fees

Sixth Form fees are the same flat rate as all other phases of the school.

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.

Fees will not be refunded or waived for absence through sickness, or if a term is shortened, or a vacation extended, or if a pupil is released home after public examinations or otherwise before the normal end of term, or for any other reason except in the sole discretion of the Principal.

 

Accounts

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.

 

Medical costs

Blanchelande College does have public liability insurance and where the College is culpable for the accident it will accept liability. However, for all accidents and injuries these costs are the responsibility of parents / Guardians. These costs may include, but are not limited to, ambulance bills, A&E visits, GP consultations and any follow-up.

 

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. This is applicable to all year groups, including any students not continuing into our Sixth Form.

Changes to Nursery days/ hours and cancellation of Early Bird Club and After School Club bookings are subject to half a term’s notice.

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 Principal may also suspend/ exclude a pupil, if required. In such circumstances there is an Appeals procedure (see Complaint and Appeal policy) overseen by the Board of Governors.

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