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.
  • By Credit Card: Payments by Visa and Mastercard are acceptable. The full amount due must be paid by the first day of term. An administration charge (currently 2%) will be made for credit card payments.
  • 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.

 

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.

Insurance

 
Please note there are changes to the insurance that Kent College arranges which are effective from September 2016.  Please click here for further information or contact the Bursary on 01892 820220.

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


This is available through BUPA Schools Health Insurance Scheme. Their membership guide is available for download from their website www.bupa.co.uk/schoolscheme

Both of the above schemes incur an additional cost.

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.
