Payment of School Fees Policy
The school year is divided into two terms and the annual Tuition Fee is payable per term, in 2 equal instalments. The first instalment and the additional fees will be paid together. There are no reductions for absence or illness or withdrawal for any reason. Fees are subject to annual review.
Due Date for Payment of Fees:
✓ The first term school fees are due on 15th of April till the end of April.
✓ The second term school fees are due one calendar month before the end of the current term for existing students. (15th of December till 15th of January)
Fees may be paid by bank transfer, card, cash or cheque made payable to Gheras International School.
Where companies are paying school fees directly, the parents are ultimately responsible and the above deadlines must still be adhered to.
The following procedure will be instigated when fees are not received by the due date.
✓ A text message will be sent 5 days after fees are due
✓ A letter will be sent via student 10 days after fees are due
✓ 14 days after fees are due the place will be withdrawn
In the case of a dishonoured cheque, the fees must be paid in cash before the above deadlines.
In the case of financial hardship, other arrangements for fee payment may be available on application in writing to both the School CEO and the School Founder.
Please be aware that we will inform any other School or educational establishment, to which you propose to send your child, of any outstanding fees.
