How do I pay?

Can I pay in installments?

Yes, you have the option to pay your fees on a termly basis.

Additionally, we have established a partnership with School Fee Plan (SFP), an organisation that offers financing solutions for school fees.

The process operates as follows: you'll make convenient installment payments to SFP, and in turn, SFP will remit the payments to us. This arrangement provides greater flexibility in managing your payments.

It is not a formal interview; it allows you to ask any questions and for us to tailor your subjects to areas that work best for you.

You’ll have a personal consultation so that we can understand your strengths, interests and ambitions.

We’ll then develop your personal study programme together.

Can I attend an Open Day?

Rather than organising large open days, we like to arrange bespoke visits in which we are able to design the itinerary around your specific needs and interests.

To that end, we welcome you to schedule a visit (and ideally let us know more about your current academic level and plans), to meet with the college Principal, explore our facilities and get a sense of what we have to offer.

Please contact us to book a visit.

We regularly organise workshops, for example, exam stress workshops and start of term talks that run alongside lessons, to enhance the overall learning experience.

Students are invited to meet our welfare staff termly and we regularly survey students to get a temperature gage on the current wellbeing of the cohort. Particular needs that are identified in survey results are addressed either with individual students or as group campaigns.
