Payment of School Fees     

Fees are invoiced termly and are due for payment in full by the first day of each term. An interest charge (currently 1.5% per month, calculated daily) will be added to overdue accounts. Several payment methods are available: 

  • By Direct Debit: Deducted on the first day of each term. Fees may be paid termly or monthly by direct debit. This can be set up by completing the agreement form and mandate available from the Bursary. This service is not available to parents who do not have a UK bank account.
  • Fees (including extras) may also as a concession, be paid in four monthly instalments, commencing on approximately 5th September for the Autumn term, 5th January for the Spring term and 5th May for the Summer term.  This instalment arrangement is concessionary and subject to certain conditions which are available from the Bursary, together with the Direct Debit mandate.  This service is only available to parents who have a UK bank account.
  • By Cheque: The detachable bank giro credit form at the foot of the invoice should be completed and returned with your cheque directly to the Kent College Bursary.  Cheques should be made payable to ‘Kent College Pembury’.
  • By Electronic Bank Transfer: Payments should be directed to HSBC Bank plc, sort code 40-02-06, account number 90010103, clearly quoting your name and reference. Payment by PC Banking over the Internet should be made in the same way.
  • Composition Fee Scheme: Fees for all or part of your daughter’s schooling can be paid in advance. Details of discounts are available from the Bursary.
  • Any refunds will be paid to the same bank account or debit/credit card that was used for the original payment.

Fees for Supplementary Tuition

Those marked with * are payable in advance. A double charge will appear on the first term’s invoice and no charge will be made on the final term’s invoice.If a girl wishes to stop taking any optional subject, one term’s notice must be given in writing to the Headmistress or Bursary or fee in lieu of notice will be charged.

Assistance with fees

Kent College is a non-profit making organisation and the whole of the school fees are used to balance expenditure. It is not, therefore, in a position to assist parents financially except by a small reduction of the fees as mentioned previously (see ‘Discounts’ section). For further information on assistance with fees, please click here.

There are a number of companies who provide guidance in planning for the long term financing of school fees. ISCis (Independent Schools Council Information Service) is one such company. They can be contacted on telephone 0207 798 1500 or at: ISCis, 35-37 Grosvenor Gardens, London SW1W 0BS.

Alteration to Fees

Fees are reviewed annually and adjustments are normally made in September. The school will endeavour to give as much notice as possible of increases in fees to parents/guardians.

Notice of Withdrawal

A full term’s notice in writing is required if you wish to withdraw your daughter/ward from Kent College without penalty. Otherwise a full term’s fees in lieu of notice are payable. This condition is strictly enforced.

References from Previous Schools

In addition to academic and character references that may be required from previous schools, we reserve the right to ask parents or guardians to provide a written reference from the previous school to confirm that there are no outstanding unpaid fees, and to withdraw any offer of a place at Kent College if any fees at a previous school remain unpaid.

Fees refund scheme

In the event of absence through sickness, accident or quarantine, fees cannot be reimbursed by the Governors. However, the school has made arrangements for the girls to be included in the Marsh School Fees Refund Scheme whereby fees are recovered from insurers for days lost due to absence of more than 5 days.

Private Medical Insurance

Pupils Private Medical Scheme

You now have the opportunity to enrol your child in the above Scheme which the School has arranged with AXA PPP Healthcare. 

Please click to download the leaflet which provides details of the benefits provided and the cost.  Cover can be arranged for the Winter Term, and start from 1 September 2017 if we receive a correctly completed Application Form in time for us to send it to Marsh Limited, our intermediary for this Scheme, by 30 July, and insurers accept the application.  Should we receive your form after that date cover will commence from the date your application is accepted by the insurer.  However no application forms for the Winter Term will be accepted by the insurer after 30 September 2017.

To assist us, please act now and complete and return the form if you require the cover for your child.

If you apply to join now the premium will be £75 per pupil per term for the academic year commencing in September 2017, inclusive of Insurance Premium Tax (IPT), provided the level of IPT is not changed by the Government.  You do have the right to cancel the cover at any time as advised in the leaflet attached and cover will end if your child leaves the school.

If your child is currently insured under the Bupa Pupils medical Scheme then please note that cover will cease completely on the 31 August 2017 and no treatment or costs incurred after that date will be paid for by Bupa, even if the treatment has been preauthorised by Bupa or is ongoing.  Also, please note that whilst the cover under the AXA PPP Scheme is very similar to that provided by the Bupa Pupils’ Scheme it is not identical.  Please carefully read the leaflet for details of the new Scheme and visit the website where full details are provided.

If your child will be part way through treatment on 31 August 2017 and you are continuing cover under the AXA PPP Healthcare Scheme then you can telephone the following helpline and they will talk you through what you need to do. 

Telephone: 0330 102 5503

If in addition to yourself, if you would like the School to be able to speak to AXA PPP healthcare to obtain authorisation for treatment or handle claims for your child, then please ensure you tick part 2a) of the Application Form. 

Pupils' Personal Accident Insurance Scheme

In line with the recommendation made by the Independent Schools Joint Council, personal accident is taken out for all the girls through Marsh at no extra cost. The insurance cover provided is worldwide and includes holidays.

Insurance of Personal Effects

The school does not provide cover for the girls ‘personal possessions’ that are mislaid or damaged at school. Parents are therefore advised to take out their own insurance policy.
