School fees and fees for additional services such as clubs, outings, extras etc. are calculated by the Governors under the advisement of the Bursar. We aim to generate a surplus of income over expenditure to make possible the necessary investment in the provision of facilities, staff, resources and property.
The Registration Fee is £100 and is non-refundable. Term dates and registration information are available upon request or downloadable from the relevant pages on our website. A confirmation deposit of £300 is payable upon confirmation of a place. The fee will be repaid within 12 weeks of a child leaving Hopelands less any sums owing to the school at that time.
