Day pupil deposits and retainers

It is expected that pupils will progress through the School, from Nursery to Sixth Form. The non-refundable retainer fee secures a place in our Reception year and beyond. On entry to Reception, the retainer is transferred into a refundable deposit at the prevailing rate. The acceptance deposit will be retained in the general funds of the School until the pupil leaves. The balance less extras charged on the final bill will then be transferred to the Development Office to help fund scholarships, bursaries, major capital projects and Clifton High Foundation initiatives, unless written notification to the contrary is received one month prior to the final bill.
A sibling discount scheme is offered for families with more than one child at the school.
Discounts are applied individually, not overall on the net fees.
Conditions applying to sibling discount will be explained when an offer of a school place is made.
These headline fees include such items as normal curricular educational visits which take place during the school day, core items such as educational textbooks, exercise books, some stationery and the majority of extra-curricular activities throughout the day.
The above fees include some extended provision, supervised by qualified staff, which varies depending on year group. Options include Early Birds or Early Registration, Homework Rooms, some extra-curricular clubs and ten free ASAC sessions for children in Nursery-Year 5 each half term. Full details can be found in 'Wrap-around-Care - The Extended School Day': http://www.cliftonhigh.co.uk/Wrap-around-Care
The headline fees do not include residential trips, non-curricular visits, public examination fees, EAL additional support, FECP, one-to-one tuition, for example, speech and drama lessons or specialist coaching and some of our extra-curricular clubs, such as tennis and dance.
