King’s Schools are happy to accept Child Care Vouchers (CCVs) from parents for qualifying activities for pupils* as defined by the law.
Parents can use vouchers as payment towards any form of care or supervision outside the hours allocated to compulsory education. In practice, this means that King’s Schools can accept CCVs for:
- The charges for boarding for pupils* in the school.**
- The fees for any child aged three until 31st March, 31st August or 31st December next after the child celebrates their 5th birthday. Children within their correct National Curriculum year group can use CCVs for Nursery and some Reception fees, depending on date of birth.
- After school clubs which take place outside the normal school day for pupils* in the school. After school care and clubs would fall into this category.**
- Holiday clubs organised and run by the School for pupils in the school*.
* Aged 15 or below (16 if they are disabled)
** For out of school clubs and boarding fees the care must be invoiced separately to the education fees and provided out of school hours and on the school premises.
Child Care Vouchers are provided by employers to employees under certain qualifying conditions, and the voucher amount is free from tax and National Insurance contributions. It was closed for new entrants from 4 October 2019 – further details can be found at https://www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/childcare-vouchers.

The termly fee is payable in advance on or before the first day of each term, unless otherwise agreed by separate contractual agreement. If no arrangement is in place and fees are not paid before the first day of term the fee will be liable to a surcharge of 1.5% and further similar charges at the end of each month that the account remains unpaid. Any remission may be withdrawn if payment is not received on this basis.
As a result of changes to legislation, we will be unable to accept payment of fees by credit or debit card from 13 January 2018.
Monthly Payment of Fees
“School Fee Plan are a provider of finance for School Fees and they may be able to offer you a service. Please click the banner for further information.”
We are aware many of our parents would like to pay school fees on a monthly basis. Due to the strict rules and requirements regarding consumer credit, this is something the School does not currently do. However, we are aware of a company who does offer a scheme that might be of interest. For more details please watch the video for information on School Fee Plan and how you can use their service to pay your school fees monthly and also the website link to apply:

As well as the ability to pay by direct debit, we are aware many of our parents may be interested in a simple, flexible and more manageable way to afford school fees with a lump sum loan or a flexible draw down of funds. We are aware of a company that offers a scheme that might be of interest. For more details via their website please click on the link below.
It is not unusual for a pupil to be eligible for or be awarded multiple remissions. Please note that only the largest of these will apply as far as the remission of fees is concerned. Remissions may be removed if fees are not paid on time. Please see the School’s terms and conditions for more details.
