There is a £50 fee to cover the interview and administrational costs.
Sibling discount is 15% for the first sibling and 20% for further siblings.
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.
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 If a child is withdrawn without notice, The Learning Circle reserves the right to keep the deposit. Please note that the 8 school weeks notice period applies at any time of year including if your child wants to leave at the end of the summer term.
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.
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.
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.
