Payment options for 2018-19 school fees


1. Termly payment (by bank transfer or cheque)

Fees must be paid on or before the first day of term by bank transfer to HSBC Bank plc, Account No 31534076, Sort Code 40-07-13, quoting the pupil’s full name for identification purposes or by cheque made out to Herne Hill School.

2. Termly payment (by direct debit)

Parents can pay the termly fees as invoiced by the School by direct debit on the first day of term. The amount and the date of debit will be confirmed beforehand. Once established, the Direct Debit Mandate can be kept open in subsequent years for the duration of the child’s time at Herne Hill School, thereby avoiding paperwork. This is a hassle-free method of always paying on time, at the last possible date, without incurring any fees.

Parents wishing to pay using this option should complete the appropriate Direct Debit Mandate (one for each pupil where appropriate) and the enclosed form “Application to Pay School Fees by Termly Direct Debit” no later than 24 August 2018.

3. Monthly payment (by direct debit)

In line with regulations by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the School is not able to accept monthly direct debit payments directly from parents. However, there is a facility through third party credit providers regulated by the FCA which does enable parents to pay by monthly direct debit. To enquire, please press here

4. For Pre-Prep only: Annual payment in advance (by cheque or bank transfer)

The entire year’s fees can be paid in advance by multiplying the termly fees of £4,985 by three and deducting a discount of £250 (i.e., £14,705). Fees must be paid by Monday 3 September by bank transfer to HSBC Bank plc, Account No 31534076, Sort Code 40-07-13, quoting the pupil’s full name and account number for identification purposes or by cheque made out  to Herne Hill School. Fees for terms not attended are fully refundable as long as the appropriate notice of withdrawal is given (but the early payment discount of £250 becomes due if the pupil does not attend the full year).

5. Childcare vouchers and Tax-Free Childcare

We accept childcare vouchers from most providers (Edenred, care-4, Computershare, Fideliti, Kiddivouchers, Sodexo, etc.) and are registered to accept payment from the Tax-Free Childcare accounts parents may have set up. Payments from either option can be used for tuition fees in Kindergarten, Pre-Reception and Reception. They can also be used for wrap-around care across all year groups including Years 1 and 2.
