Insurance Schemes

We participate in two opt-in insurance schemes for pupils:


Fees Refund Scheme

The absence of a pupil does not lessen the cost of running the School so we do not refund fees if a pupil is unable to attend classes due to sickness, accident or quarantine. We are, however, able to make refunds through the Fees Refund Scheme if you choose to participate.


We have taken out an insurance policy under which we can claim on behalf of participating parents. The scheme will allow us to refund you a portion of your fees for any continuous period of term-time absence of four days or more (including weekends). The termly cost is 1.58% of basic fees.


To opt into this scheme, please send an email to

Pupils Personal Accident Insurance Scheme

This scheme provides benefits for bodily injury, permanent disability or death which is caused solely by accidental means. Cover commences for each pupil from the first day of term, including the duration of the uninterrupted journey to school. The termly premium is currently £5.00, including Insurance Premium Tax.
