1) Pupils joining the summer school are charged a non-returnable deposit of £100 per pupil payable upon enrolment to the summer school. This fee is then deductible against the first week’s fees. No reimbursement will be made in case of cancellation of a place at any time.

2) A place will not be confirmed until the booking form is fully completed with parental signatures and the deposit has been received.

3) Summer School fees must be paid by bank transfer and will be subject to a £20 fee to cover UK bank charges for overseas accounts. An invoice for the remaining balance will be raised and presented on payment of deposit, and must be paid at least 8 weeks before the student is due to arrive. Fees are paid in advance for the length of the stay. Prices are normally revised in September for the next summer school.

4) Cancellations 5 weeks prior to the course will result in an 80% refund of total costs. No refund will be issued on later cancellations. If the cancellation is due to a visa application being rejected, we will refund 80% of the total cost fees. This will only be issued upon receipt of a copy of the visa rejection letter from the British Consulate.

5) Visas will be required for students of some nationalities. A letter of acceptance will be provided once we have received the deposit. On receipt of full payment a visa support letter will be issued to assist with visa applications.

6) Students are strongly advised to take out their own personal insurance to cover illness, accident or theft or loss of personal possessions. We do not include this in the fees.

7) The College has insurance which covers accidents which occur to students whilst on any College activity. The insurance policy does not cover loss of personal property and any claim must be made as soon as practicable.

8) Parents/guardians agree to inform the College immediately of any change of home address or contact details, including email, home telephone and mobile telephone numbers.

13) All College premises inside and outside are non-smoking and students may not smoke whilst on site. Students may not consume alcohol on College premises or on excursions. Bringing into the College or possession of any type of drugs or weapons is strictly prohibited and renders a student liable to permanent exclusion and the corresponding judicial consequences.

14) Students will not be allowed to leave College on their own unless accompanied by a member of staff or group leader.

15) The College reserves the right to exclude temporarily or permanently students whose behaviour merits this in the view of the Summer School Manager.  The cost of returning the student home will be the responsibility of the parents.

16) Students are expected to hand in their own passport, flight tickets, pocket money and valuable possessions on arrival at the school for safekeeping.

17) Pocket Money is not supplied by the school and students should bring their own pocket money to spend during their time in the summer school.  The school do offer a Safety Deposit Box for the safe keeping of such funds during the pupil’s stay with us, by which a sign in/out form is required to be completed each time the student would like to “withdraw” funds.  Any remaining monies will be returned to the pupil at the end of their stay with us, along with a copy of the withdrawal information.

18) All items of clothing must be marked with the student’s full name.

19) All students must provide their own writing material (pens, pencils, rulers etc.). These items are not included in the cost of College materials. The College provides text and exercise books and other materials.

Parents or guardians of students agree to indemnify the College and such members of staff against:
