Tockington Manor is a family school and we are very aware of the pressure on families where both parents are working. We try to have a flexible approach to arrival and departure times for children at the school. Children may arrive in time for breakfast at 7.45 am if this is convenient to parents and, although the school day for Upper School officially ends after prep and activities at 5.55 pm, day children in the Upper School are welcome to stay for supper at 6.00 pm (no extra charge) with collection at 6.30pm.
A number of spare beds are always available for day boys and girls from the age of 7 Upwards in the Upper School for use as and when convenient to their parents. Flexi boarding is very popular amongst our families.
Our termly school fees (3 terms per year) for 2016/17 are shown below:

Fees are payable termly in advance by direct debit and collected eight working days before the start of term. A 3% discount will apply to school fees (as shown) except where families receive a military discount, bursary or where fees are paid by employers.
Payment in advance
Payments of whole years in advance will obtain the following discounts (3% direct debit discount does not apply):
• 1 year in advance – 4.5%
• 2 years in advance – 5.5%
• 3 years in advance – 6.5%
For parents wishing to spread the cost of their fees, a monthly payment plan is available through School Fee Plan. Please click on the icon below to find out more.
Late Payment Charges
Interest of 5% per month plus £50 late payment fee per invoice will be charged if fees are seven days or more late. Failed Direct Debit payments will result in the 3% discount being withdrawn except where the school is at fault. The School reserves the right to withdraw places for pupils where fees are overdue.
A £500 commitment fee is required to secure a future place at the school (£750 for overseas pupils). This will be deducted from the first term’s fees. This is non-refundable in the event that the place is not taken.
Leaving the School
One full term’s notice must be given in writing should parents wish to withdraw their child from the School. If notice is not given, or is received after the start of the preceding term, one full term’s fees in lieu will be payable.
