Fees for Autumn Term 2013
Registration and Acceptance Fees
Prior to joining the School you will be asked for a “Registration Fee” of £75 for the first child and £50 for each subsequent child. Once you accept a place at Bootham, you will be charged an “Acceptance Fee” of £300 - these charges are non-refundable.
Overseas families are required to pay a boarder’s deposit which is equal to one term’s fees at the rate prevailing when the fee is due. This deposit, minus the Acceptance Fee, is offset against the final term’s bill and any balance refunded at that time.
