The school fee for academic year 2012/2013 is £10,720 per term (£32,160 per annum) and includes board, tuition, textbooks, a stationery allowance and laundry. For any subject requiring additional tuition there is an extra charge.
For parents who have a bank account in the UK, the method for payment of fees is by termly direct debit in advance, with full payment being due on or before the first day of term. A late payment charge of £250 is added to all accounts not settled by direct debit but this may be deducted if accounts are settled on or before the first day of term. Overdue accounts are subject to an additional interest charge of 1.5% per month.
A full term's notice must be given of a pupil's leaving the School: in the absence of such notice the full fee for the following term is payable. Notice may be given provisionally.
Payment of School fees for parents living overseas
It is one of the School’s standard Terms and Conditions that, where one or more of the parents normally reside outside the United Kingdom, one year’s school fees are due and payable in advance before the first day of the Autumn term in each year of the boy’s attendance at the School. This requirement can sometimes be varied, on application to the Finance Bursar, if a direct debit arrangement is set up with a UK bank.
Advance Fees Scheme
The School operates a tax-efficient Advance Fees Scheme which offers attractive returns. Through the Scheme, lump sums can be invested in advance which are designed to cover part or all of the estimated cost of a boy’s fees while at Harrow. The interest earned on the investment is tax-free when the investment is used to pay school fees, thus effectively earning a discount on the fees.
For more information on the Advance Fees Scheme please contact the Scheme Administrator, Mrs Cece Walker, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning 020 8872 8503.
