Advanced payments – 2017

Advance payments on admission

Upon acceptance of a pupil and prior to admission, the parent shall pay an advance payment in such amounts as may have been laid down by the Board from time to time. This advance payment secures a place in the school for a pupil.
If a pupil does not take up the place offered, the amount so paid is not refundable unless written notice is received by the school at least one full term before the place is due to be taken up.
Advance payments on promotion through the school
Advance payments will be increased as a pupil is promoted to a new educational phase within the school in such amounts as may have been laid down by the Board from time to time. 
The educational phases have, for the time being, been determined as Grade 0 and 4 and Form I.
The "top up" of the advance payment will be debited to the pupil account in the first term of the relevant year and will be payable, together with the tuition fees and other charges, on the first day of the term. Advance payments made in previous years will be taken into account in determining the
increased amount to be paid.
Interest on advance payments
Advance payments will be held in accordance with the Consumer Protection Act, 2008. All interest, or other income therefrom, will accrue to the school.
Refund of advance payments
The advance payment will be refunded, without interest, when a pupil matriculates or leaves the school.
Advance payments may not be offset against amounts reflected as due on pupil statements and will only be refunded when the school receives payment of its final account. However, the school shall be entitled in its discretion to allocate the advance payment, or any portion thereof, towards
payment of any amounts due to the school which remain unpaid.
Donation of advance payments
A parent may donate the advance payment to the school's Foundation when the pupil matriculates or leaves the school. Voluntary donations in these circumstances will qualify for a section 18A tax certificate. A section 18A certificate will be issued at the end of the tax year.
