admission fees

Interview

There is a £50 fee to cover the interview and administrational costs.

Deposit

We ask for a returnable deposit payable on admission. The deposit can be paid in monthly instalments over 3 months. This is held by us and returned once the child leaves the community. The deposit is 2 months of fees if you decide to pay fees over 10 months or 3 months of fees if you prefer to pay fees over 12 months (see above tables for details). Deposits are payable after acceptance through an interview thus guaranteeing a place. If the try-out does not result in the student joining our community, the deposit is returned. 

Withdrawal

8-school-weeks notice is required to withdraw your child (see terms and conditions). If a child is withdrawn without notice, The Learning Circle reserves the right to keep the deposit.

Withdrawal before starting

If you have reserved a place for your child in advance and your child has completed their try-out, but then you decide to withdraw, we will need you to let us know 6 weeks in advance of the planned start date. If not we reserve the right to keep the deposit for expenses incurred.

Half-days

If a student wishes to do half-days instead of full days, we ask that they do a minimum of 1.5 days for one child or 1 day each for siblings. This is to ensure that children spend enough time in the community to share time together and form friendships.

Try-out days

Students can try-out the learning community  before deciding whether they want to join our community. There is a minimum of two weeks of try out days and a max of four.

Taking a break

If students take a holiday during term time, we continue to charge fees. For long breaks, we need 8 weeks notice. In this case, we cannot guarantee the student’s place when they return.
