Online Payment Charges
Students are also offered the opportunity to avail of ‘optional’ activities / events, ie, extra-curricular activities, day trips, photos, bluecoat magazine, etc. These charges will be notified to parents in advance and will require payment through our ‘Online Payments’ system prior to the student participating in the activity / event.
Occasionally, the school facilitates our families by making payment directly to 3rd parties on their behalf, for example, RIAM music / drama exams, with the charge included on the student’s fee invoice for repayment to the school. No refunds / credits can be issued by the school where a student cannot participate in the activity and the terms and conditions of the 3rd party do not permit refunds. Refunds / credits can only be considered where the school recoups the monies paid to the 3rd party on the student’s behalf.
