*In May 2010 the Governors of Birchfield School decided to withdraw the School from the Government-funded nursery voucher scheme. This scheme is relevant for children until they reach their 5th birthday. As a consequence, the fee structure in Reception has been adjusted in order to replicate the effect that the nursery vouchers otherwise would have had. The School will continue to accept commercial childcare vouchers in part payment for fees until a pupil reaches the age of 5.

Payment

Payment of fees can be by cheque or BACS transfer. A standing order, by which the year’s fees are paid through 9 equal instalments, can also be arranged.

Discounts

A range of discounts are available for advanced payments as well as for siblings.  Please speak to the Headmaster or the Bursar for further details.

Childcare Vouchers

The School will accept childcare vouchers in payment for extra-curricular activities, including boarding.

Bursaries

Means tested bursaries are available in some circumstances.  For further information, please contact the Headmaster or the Bursar.
