The above figures include lunch and essential textbooks from Reception onwards. Monthly payments made by Direct Debit are through School Fee Plan (SFP) and are subject to a service charge. Further details are available from the College or from https://www.myschoolfeeplan.com/Shoreham-BN43 (*the figures shown above do not include this service charge).

Fees for Little Lions are proportioned for the number of sessions taken. Pupils in this year are able to stay for mornings, all day or a variety of combinations depending on the places available. Lunch is optionally available for this age group at a small additional charge. The College is registered to participate in the government’s 15 hours Early Years Partnership Scheme. This currently enables eligible 3, 4 and 5 year-old children to receive a fee reduction. Please contact the College for further details.

Fees and any agreed supplemental charges will not normally be reduced or refunded as a result of absence due to illness or otherwise. If your child takes study leave at home before or during public examinations, or stays at home following those examinations, no reduction of fees will be made in respect of such periods spent at home.

An initial charge of £350 is made upon registration. This amount comprises a registration fee of £50 and a deposit of £300. In the event of the pupil not entering the College, no money is refundable. The deposit will be deducted from the last invoice issued when the pupil leaves the College, providing all College property has been returned, all invoices are paid in full and the leaver’s form is fully completed. For any child whose permanent residence is not in the United Kingdom a deposit of £1000 will be required upon registration. The registration fee is not refundable in any situation.

Further details on the OSA can be found on the College website.

Payment of Accounts
Payment may be made by cheque (payable to ‘Shoreham College') or directly to the College bank account (sort code: 20-12-75 and account number: 70047651) for the full amount. Please quote the invoice number and the parent reference code in all cases. The College is also able to accept payment by all major debit or credit cards. Alternatively, direct debit payments may be made via School Fee Plan. A small service charge is made for using this service and parents wishing to pay by this method can use the website shown overleaf or can contact the school office for further details.

All fees must be paid by the first day of the commencement of term and no pupil shall have the right to return to the College if the settlement is not met by the due date. The Governors reserve the right to levy a late payment charge of the Barclays Bank Base Rate plus 5% on any overdue accounts. Non-payment of fees will result in the child being asked to leave the College. Any person who presents a payment to the College who does not have the funds cleared by their bank will be charged an additional amount of £20 per transaction to cover costs incurred by the College.

The College will review fees annually at the end of each academic year.

Notice of Leaving
A full term's notice, in writing, must be given to the Headmaster for a pupil leaving the College on or before the first day of the term in which they will leave otherwise a term's fees must be paid in lieu of notice. Provisional or verbal notice is unacceptable. Fees will not be refunded if a pupil is asked to leave the College, for any reason, by the Headmaster.

Pupils’ Effects
The College cannot accept responsibility for personal items brought to the College - bicycles, electronic equipment, clothing etc. Parents should have their own insurance cover for such items.

Please refer to the full terms and conditions of the College for further details. The College reserves the right to change or add to these terms and conditions from time to time for legal, safety or other substantive reasons or in order to assist the proper delivery of education at the College.
