Early Years Free Education

Please note, we are a registered provider for Surrey County Council Free Early Education for 3 and 4 year olds.  This provides up to 15 hours per week of free education in Nursery, Kindergarten and Reception up to and including the term of their fifth birthday.  Each morning or afternoon session counts as 3 hours towards this entitlement.

Childcare Vouchers

Your employer may offer the option of childcare vouchers which is a tax efficient way of paying for part of the fees.  We are registered with several childcare voucher providers.  Childcare vouchers can only be used for childcare, which includes Nursery fees, Kindergarten fees, Reception fees (up to the term of the child's fifth birthday), after school activities and before/after school care.

School fees are normally subject to annual review, but the School Governors reserve the right to increase them at the beginning of any term, should the need arise, in which case as long a notice as is practicable will be given.

The fees are payable in advance, on or before the first day of term. Cheques should be made payable to St Hilary's School Trust Limited. If the previous term's account has not been settled, a child may be refused admission at the beginning of a new term. A full term's notice (or fees in lieu thereof) is required before the removal of a child from the School.

Fees are normally paid as a single payment at the beginning of each term. Additionally there are various companies which offer products to spread the cost of fees over the year.  Details of such companies can be found online.

A pupil may only discontinue an Extra Subject if a term's notice has been given in writing to the Headmistress.

Please see the Bursar for information on paying fees by monthly instalments and pupil fee insurance.
