The repayment of deposits is linked to the settlement of final fee invoices upon the departure of the pupil from Clifton College. Parents are welcome to gift aid the deposit to the College when a pupil leaves.

Extra Tuition

Private tuition for English as an additional language, Special Educational Needs and subject not offered within the curriculum may be provided, and will generally be charged at an hourly rate of £55.

Music Tuition

Music lessons are available to pupils in a range of disciplines. If you wish your child to have lessons please complete the relevant section of the authorisation form or contact the Director of Music. The charge in the Upper and Prep schools will be £35 per lesson for a 40 minute lesson and £27 for 30 minutes for children in the Pre-Prep. At the discretion of the teacher, pupils may be taught in groups, or for different lesson tenths with an appropriate adjustment to the fee. Where available, music instruments can be hired but a deposit may be required.

Notwithstanding the College’s Terms and Conditions, if you wish to withdraw your child from music lessons, or change teacher, you must allow a period of notice equivalent to 10 lessons from the day that notice is received. Unless notice of cancellation is given in writing, it will be assumed that the pupil requires tuition to continue from term to term and arrangements will be made accordingly.

Reduction for Brothers and Sisters

A reduction of the net school fee (referred to the table overleaf) is currently offered to parents who have two children or more that College, excluding the Nursery. The reductions, which are applied to the younger children, are 5% for the second child, 20% for the third child and 50% for the fourth and any subsequent children whilst they all simultaneously attend the School. This discount remains the subject of annual review.

Fees in advance scheme

The College operates a scheme whereby, in return for a lump sum payment, the College offers a credit to be applied against each term’s fee invoice for a set number of terms. Further information is available from the Fees Office upon request.

Childcare Vouchers & Tax Free Childcare

The College accepts payment against qualifying fees by childcare vouchers and Tax-Free Childcare.

Notice of Withdrawal of a Pupil or Change of Status

In accordance with the College’s terms and conditions, a full term’s notice must be given in writing if you wish to withdraw your child from the College, or if you wish to change your child’s place at the College from one type of boarding to another or to a day place (where possible). Failing such notice, a full term’s fees will be charged.
