General Information

Registration Fee

The registration fee is payable upon registration and is non-returnable.

Acceptance Deposit

The acceptance deposit is payable to secure a place and will be repaid without interest by means of a credit against the final account from the School after the pupil leaves. If at any time parents take up residence overseas, the School reserves the right to ask for the additional overseas deposits as listed above.

Termly Fees

The termly fees include meals and school textbooks, but not optional extras or transport costs. The fees for each term are payable in advance, either on or before the first day of term. Alternatively, a monthly instalment scheme is available, operated by School Fee Plan  SFP Flyer https://www.myschoolfeeplan.com/TheOratory-RG8. Interest is charged on late payment. If fees remain overdue, we reserve the right to exclude your son from School. Any such action will not prejudice our right to payment and you will remain liable for all sums due to us. However the fees are paid, the contractual liability remains with the signatories of the Acceptance Form.


Should you wish to withdraw your son from the School, our minimum requirement is a full term’s written notice to the Head Master. Alternatively, our fees for the following term will be payable in lieu of notice.
