Fees & Payment Options

Fee Structure Summer Term 2020

In light of current circumstances and the fact that it is highly likely children will not physically be in school, we have reviewed our school fees for the Summer Term 2020.

Whilst many schools continue to charge full fees, Bellevue Education have made the following arrangements for Holmwood House School:

  • Parents of day pupils will be asked to pay 70% of day fees.
  • Parents of boarders will also be charged 70% of the day fees. There will be no charge for boarding.

Parents who are able, and willing, to pay 100% fees – or more than 70% – are encouraged to do so; any contribution above the 70% will be put into a dedicated fund to support other parents at this school who are facing temporary hardship and need assistance with fees. Bellevue will match, pound for pound, any contribution made in this way.

Parents of nursery or pre-Reception aged children will be charged 15% of their last monthly bill. We recognise we are not delivering online learning for this group, but your contribution will very much help in supporting the school.

Fees in September 2020 will at the minimum be kept at the 2019/20 original level listed below, although we will continue to be mindful of the economic climate.

Fee Structure 2019/20

Our fee structure for September 2019 and beyond aims to ensure we provide the best possible educational experience for our pupils, as well as greater flexibility and affordability for our parents. If you have any questions regarding the fee structure, please contact the School Office and a member of our team will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Important Information

  • A term's notice in writing is required before the removal of a child; otherwise, a term's fees may be charged in lieu.

  • Reduced fees are charged for a third child and subsequent children, while they are attending Holmwood House at the same time (please request further details).

  • The boarding prices include dinner, bed & breakfast, supervised activities and laundry for those boarding on particular nights. (e.g. those boarding on a Tuesday night will have their kit washed for matches the following day.)  Please note that 48 hours' notice is required if cancelling a boarding night, otherwise you will be charged for that night.

  • Boarding: please note if your child does not regularly stay after 4pm, we can arrange for them to stay as part of the activity and prep programme which carries a small charge of £15. Alternatively, you can collect your child at the usual and return them in time for supper at 5.50pm.  If your child is due to board, we will automatically assume that they will be staying as part of the activities programme unless you advise us otherwise. 

Payment of fees

  • Fees are payable termly in advance on the first day of term.  Payment may be made by cheque, Direct Debit, Credit Card, Termly Direct Debit, electronic transfer/internet banking.

  • Payment by monthly instalments is only available via a third party provider. (see below)

  • Delays in the payment of fees are punitive to the majority who pay promptly and interest at 2% per month or part thereof will be levied on all unpaid balances.

  • The school reserves the right to exclude a pupil until such time as the fees have been paid.

Learning Support

  • Individual learning support tuition incurs an extra termly charge of £215, or multiples thereof, based on the number of lessons per week. Parents will always be consulted before extra tuition is provided.

Music Tuition

  • Individual music tuition is provided by the peripatetic music teachers who are self-employed and invoice separately for their services.  If an instrument is hired from the school, a charge of £40 per term will be made.

Fees Refund Scheme

 For parents of existing pupils already included in the scheme

 For parents of new pupils joining the scheme, or pupils who are not already included in the scheme (included application form)
