There are a range of mechanisms available for the payment of School Fees Subscriptions and Levies, including the nomination of a Third Party. Where a Third Party is nominated as the fee payer, this does not change the liability for the Parents/Carers for any unpaid School Fees and Levies.

Parents /Carers unable to pay school fees subscriptions due to genuine financial hardship are urged to approach the Conductor (school principal) who will take the request to the Finance Sub-Committee, and respond to their situation with care and sensitivity. Early communication with the school regarding a family’s financial situation is essential.
