Fees are reviewed annually
Stonyhurst does not wish purely financial considerations to deter any parent from applying for a place. The Headmaster would be pleased to discuss any individual cases .
In respect of each UK-resident pupil entering the College/St Mary’s Hall a deposit of £300 for Weekly and Full Boarders and £150 for Day Pupils is payable in advance on completion of the Acceptance Form. This deposit is in addition to the termly fees which are payable on or before the first day of term. The balance of any deposit remaining (if any), after charging all the extras and any residual fees due at the end of a pupil’s final term, will be repayable by the Stonyhurst College/Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall within two months of the end of that term. For the avoidance of doubt, where there is more than one child entering Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall from a family, the relevant deposit is payable in respect of each child.
Overseas-Resident Pupils from within the European Economic Area
In respect of each overseas-resident pupil entering Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall, a deposit of £2,000 is payable in advance on completion of the Acceptance Form. This deposit is in addition to the requirement that termly fees are paid on or before the first day of each term. The deposit of £2,000 retained will be offset against any extras incurred in the final term.
Student entry into the U.K. from all nationals outside the European Economic Area (EEA)
In respect of each non EEA Resident pupil entering Stonyhurst College or St Mary’s Hall, a deposit of £2,000 is payable in advance on completion of the Acceptance Form. Following receipt of the completed Acceptance Form a bill for the first term’s fees will be issued to meet the UK Border Agency criteria as follows:
Since 1 September 2007 all nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area
(EEA) who wish to study in the United Kingdom need prior entry clearance (permission to come here) as a student.
Students will face stringent new criteria if they want to study in the UK. Before they can study here, foreign students must;
Non EEA overseas students coming to Stonyhurst have to have a Certificate of Sponsorship (also known as ‘confirmation of acceptance for studies’). This certificate is issued by Stonyhurst once the entry criteria have been met.
Non EEA overseas students coming to Stonyhurst must be able to prove that they have sufficient funds available for their school fees and other living costs. Once the deposit and first term’s fees have been paid we will issue a receipt.
Before entering the UK, non EEA overseas students will be required to provide the following documentation to the UK Border Agency;
A ‘Certificate of Sponsorship’
A copy of their last school report/signed reference from their current school
Proof of payment of school fees. (Following receipt of the Acceptance Form and deposit our Accounts Department issue an invoice for the first term’s fees. You are required to settle this account without delay so that you are able to provide proof of payment as required by the UK Border Agency.)
For an overseas-resident pupil entering Stonyhurst College or St Mary’s Hall for one term only, a deposit of £300 will be charged and will be retained as collateral against any extras incurred in that term.
In all cases the balance of any deposit remaining (if any), after charging all the extras and any residual fees due at the end of a pupil’s final term, will be repayable by the College/St Mary’s Hall within two months of the end of that term.
There is a charge for linen in a pupil’s first term at Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall
The College automatically enrols every pupil in a Pupil’s Personal Accident Insurance Scheme for which there is a charge.
Personal expenses such as travel, dry-cleaning, clothing, games equipment, public examination fees and the School Magazine are added to the pupil’s account. Parents may set limits for expenditure in the School Shop and Bookshop.
No cash can be given to a pupil as an “extra” unless:
a) the pupil’s account shows a “nil” balance
b) funds are given to the school to pass on as cash.
Fees and extras are liable to increase as the cost of living goes up.
Optional Extras: Piano, Guitar & Singing Tuition arrangements are made directly with visiting music teachers. In the years of ‘free’ music a charge is made for use of instruments in cases where the pupil does not provide their own.
You are referred to the Standard Terms and Conditions, Paragraphs 5 and 6.
Fees are payable termly in advance on or before the first day of each term. In the event of late payment, the following will be strictly applied:
Except for fees paid by direct debits (see para. C below), all fees paid after the due date (namely in advance on or before the first day of each term) will carry a penalty interest of 1½% for each completed month by which the fees are overdue.
B. RETURN NOT PERMISSIBLE
No pupil may begin a new term unless the previous term’s account has been paid.
1. Parents who, seven days before the start of any term, owe in aggregate to SMH and the College more than £5,000 (including any extras and any penalty interest incurred, but excluding the basic fees in respect of the forthcoming term), or
2. Parents who, on the first day of any half-term holiday, owe in aggregate to the College and SMH more than £6,500 (including any extras, any penalty interest incurred, and the basic fees in respect of the current term), will be asked to remove all their children currently at the College and SMH until such time as the whole of any overdue debt is paid. It should be noted that the £5,000 and £6,500 figures mentioned above will be reviewed periodically and that we shall notify parents of any such revision in the July end-of-year circular letter.
D. STANDING ORDER (FOR UK BANK ACCOUNT HOLDERS ONLY)
In order to assist parental cash-flow, we are willing to accept (with no additional charge) a standing order instruction
whereby basic fees are paid uniformly over 10 months on the first day of each month, starting on 1 September and finishing on 1 June in each academic year.
Note: A Standing Order instruction will not be accepted unless it is through a UK clearing bank.
E. CASH PAYMENTS
No one cash payment in excess of £1,500 (sterling one thousand and five hundred pounds GBP) can be accepted by Stonyhurst as payment towards fees and extras. Over the course of any one year no more than three cash payments can be accepted towards payment of fees and extras.
F. DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD
School fees are now payable by debit or credit card by first contacting the Stonyhurst College Accounts Office. There is an administration fee of 2.25% for credit card payments.
