Absence during term

Parents are especially asked not to take their sons out of school during term. It is awkward for the School as the student may well miss important educational experiences. Where it is unavoidable, written requests should be made to the Head of School.

For absences greater than four consecutive weeks, a fee equivalent to 50% of the leave period will be charged. For absences up to four weeks, or individual periods of no more than four weeks, 100% of the fee will be charged. In the case of illness, no fee will be charged on production of a medical certificate covering the period of leave

Termination of enrolment

Where any breach of the School Rules is judged by the Headmaster to constitute a serious threat to the health, safety or welfare of the school community, or where the breach violates parents’/carers’ obligations to the School under Clause 12, the enrolment may be terminated. This may also include the non-payment of fees by their due date.
