Settlement of Payments

Late Payment Charge
A late payment charge of two percent (2%) per month, compounded monthly, will be charged on all School Fees that are overdue. The school also reserves the right to give the places of students with overdue payment to new waiting applicants, meaning late payments put a child’s seat at risk.
