Tuition and Boarding Fees

We usually charge separately for items such as individual music lessons, or as a contribution to the Outdoor Pursuits programme.

Responsibility for Payment

Parents whose children’s fees are paid by agencies or companies are reminded that the contractual agreement regarding fees is with parents in the first instance and that parents are therefore responsible for ensuring that fees are paid by the due dates.

Notice of Withdrawal

Parents are also responsible for providing 30 school days’ (excluding weekends and school holidays) written notice of withdrawal of a child from tuition or boarding, in lieu of which they are liable to pay TSh 2.26m ($1000).

Fees may be adjusted periodically. The school also reserves the right to alter fees should there be a significant change in circumstances. Fees are not refundable in the event of temporary withdrawal by parents, or of suspension or expulsion of the student by the school.

Difficulties with Payment

The school understands that families occasionally have difficulties with fee payments and will try to assist in such circumstances. If you anticipate any problems with payments of fees, please arrange to meet with the Head of Campus as early as possible so that alternative payment plans could be discussed.
