    Account Name:        HIGHCLARE SCHOOL

    Account Number:     61547194

    Sort Code:                 40-45-19

    Please ensure you quote your pupil payee reference, which can be found on your fee invoice, on all payments.

  2. School Fee Plan

    10 monthly installments.  This facility is offered by a third party, Premium Credit.

    Access you School Fee Plan page here

    All school ‘extras’ can be included within these 10 monthly payments thereby eliminating the need for any additional payments at the start of term.

  3. Parent Pay

    Online payment facility which can be used to make full yearly or termly payments on the invoice due date of the first day of term.  Can also be used to pay for all school trips and excursions.

    Please note that this facility cannot be used to make casual or part fee payments.  You will be provided with log-in details for Parent Pay upon admission to the School or you can email the school using the email address: parentpay@highclareschool.co.uk

  4. Cheque

    Made payable to Highclare School quoting your pupil payee reference on the reverse of the cheque.

  5. Credit Card

    Credit card payments are subject to a 2% processing charge.

  6. Childcare Vouchers

Due to Consumer Credit Regulations, the School is not able to accept fee payments via monthly payments directly from fee-payers to the school (excluding Pre-School fees which are paid monthly in advance).

We would also like to remind you that in line with our contract and policy on debt, we reserve the right to apply interest at a rate of 3% on any outstanding fees.  The charge will be made from the date the payment is due.

Please note that payment of a full academic year’s fees in advance, by any of the above methods, will attract a discount.  This is currently set at 2% but the School reserves the right to amend or remove this facility.

If you have any questions regarding any of the above please contact the Finance Office directly on 0121 386 8212.
