Fees & Payments

  • Fees are paid half-termly (6 weeks) in advance and are usually due the first week of each half-term. Invoices are emailed before the start of term. Fees paid by the due date receive a 10% discount.
  • If fees are not received within 7 days of the due date, your child’s place in the school may be lost.
  • Our preferred method of payment is bank transfer but we also accept cash (for amounts £20 or less only), cheque (made payable to “The Stage Factory”) or debit/credit card (subject to a 2.75% transaction charge).
