Sibling discount

A sibling discount is available at Abbotsholme. For the second child, 5% is deducted from the second child's fee, and for the third child 10% is deducted from the third child's fee.

Fee charges for pupils staying for one or two terms only

Our fees our based on annual fees broken down into three equal amounts for each term in the academic year for ease of payment. However the terms are all of a different length with the Autumn term generally being longer that the Spring and Summer terms. Therefore pupils staying for one term only throughout the academic year will be charged a fee that is representative of the number of weeks within that term. Pupils staying for two terms or a year only will be charged the normal termly fees.
