Payment of Fees

Fees are payable by Direct Debit in full on the day before the first day of term. The College will also accept payment by certain Credit/Debit cards in full no later than the day before the first day of each term. There is a facility available through a third party credit provider regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, to enable fee payment by monthly direct debit.

Parents who are resident overseas and do not have a bank account in the UK may pay by bank transfer. In order to comply with regulatory requirements, the College does not accept payments in cash. The fee for a boy attending the College for any part of a term must be paid for the whole of that term. The withdrawal of a pupil requires one full term’s notice given in writing to the Master, or one full term’s fees in lieu.

The College reserves the right to suspend a pupil while fees remain unpaid, by giving the parents not less than 2 days’ written notice. If parents default on Direct Debit payments the full fee will be payable immediately. Parents who have paid fees late or whose fees are overdue may be asked to pay one term’s fees as an additional deposit. If necessary, the College will instruct solicitors to recover unpaid fees with interest and all costs incurred will be recoverable in full.

All pupils are included in a Personal Accident Insurance Scheme which offers cover for permanent disability resulting from an accident. This includes dental injury and emergency dental treatment. In addition, parents can opt-in to a Pupils’ Absence Insurance Scheme (at their own expense) to cover absence through personal illness or injury. Full details of both schemes will be supplied on entry or are available at any time from the Fees Administrator feesadministrator@dulwich.org.uk.

Advance Payment of Fees Scheme

The College runs its own scheme for advance payment of school fees. Under this arrangement parents are able to pay a lump sum in advance to purchase credits against future school fees, and receive a discount on the amount of credits purchased. Such sums can be paid prior to entry (once a boy has been offered a place),on entry, or at any time during a boy’s career at the College.
