THE COMPASS SCHOOL FEES
The Compass School is a charity and the fees are linked to the number of children, the teachers'
salaries and the anticipated overheads and repair expenditure of the School. They will be kept
as reasonable as possible.
From September 2009 the tuition fees per term will be:
Form 1 (Reception): 5 mornings + 2 afternoons £1656.00*
5 mornings + 3 afternoons £1927.00*
5 mornings + 4 afternoons £2153.00*
Forms 2 and 3 £2153.00
Forms 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 £2497.00
*The School is currently in Pre-School Partnership with East Lothian Council and therefore Form
1 parents receive a rebate of £520 per term from East Lothian Council.
The absence of several pupils does not lessen the cost of running the School, therefore the
School much regrets that it is unable to refund fees.
Registration Fee: A non-refundable Registration Fee of £25 is requested when your child's
name is put on the school list.
Deposit: Two terms before the child is due for entrance an acceptance form will be
sent with a request for a deposit of £200 which will be deducted from the
first term's fees.
Notice: A full term's notice in writing must be given of the withdrawal of a child
from school; otherwise the next term's fees will be charged.
When there are three children from one family concurrently attending the school, a reduction of a
third of the tuition fees of the youngest child will be offered.
The charges for lunch per term are:
£ 91 for lunch two days a week
£136 for lunch three days a week
£183 for lunch four days a week.
The charge for milk is £5.40 per term.
Extras: Recorder lessons will be £ 49.00 per term.
Payment: Fees are payable in advance and payment must be made:
(a) In full before the beginning of each term.
(b) By Bankers Order on a 10 monthly basis from September to June.
(c) Tuition fees paid for all three terms at the beginning of the Autumn term will receive a
1% discount on the Spring and Summer term’s fees.
Late payment incurs a penalty surcharge of 4% above the Bank of Scotland base rate for accounts still unpaid after
three weeks. Reminder notices for unpaid tuition fees and extras will be issued three weeks after the start of each
term. Subsequent reminder letters will incur a £20 administration fee.
