Once an Offer of Placement is extended by the sSchool, the parent/guardian is required to respond to the offer within 10 days and submit the Placement Deposit upon acceptance of the Offer of Placement. Further details relating to Placement Deposit arrangements in the event of student withdrawal are also made later in this document.

The Placement Deposit is a one-time, refundable, non-interest-bearing security deposit required to be paid to the School and shall be held by the School for the duration of the student’s enrollment. The School has first right to settle any outstanding fees or amounts owing to the School either prior, during or after the student’s attendance using the Placement Deposit.

Procedure for Withdrawal of an Application

In the unlikely event that an applicant needs to withdraw their application from the School after the acceptance of the Offer of Placement and after the payment of the accompanying Placement Deposit and/or Tuition Fees, which occurs prior to the agreed start date, penalties may be applied by the School based on the withdrawal notice date.

Official notice of intent to withdraw an application together with a supporting statement must be submitted in writing to your Admissions Advisor for the attention of the Head of Admissions in order for the School to process any refunds that may apply.

Fee and Refund Information

1. Application Fee:

An Application Fee is an administrative fee that must be paid to initiate the application review and admission process. The Application Fee is non-refundable.

2. Tuition Fee and Placement Deposit:

The School makes advance commitments related to staffing, purchasing and other resources based on confirmed enrolment, all of which have financial implications.

In the event that a parent/guardian decides to withdraw a student’s application from the School, refund calculations will be made accordingly, as commitments would have already been made by the School that would have an indirect financial impact of implementing changes in scheduling and other arrangements. Depending on the proximity of the notification date to the agreed start date, the amount of compensation calculated by the School may vary.

Please Note: The Placement Deposit will not be refunded to new students who subsequently decide not to attend the School as scheduled.

  Notice of Withdrawal received 90 days or more prior to the agreed start date Notice of Withdrawal received less than 90 days prior to the agreed start date Notice of Withdrawal received less than 60 days prior to agreed start date
Tuition Fees Full Refund 95% Refund 90% Refund

While the School reserves the right to deduct from the Placement Deposit any amounts that are owed by the student or the parent/guardian to the School, this right does not diminish in any way the School’s absolute right to otherwise require payment and collection of such amounts through other means when such amounts are due.

Refunds will be processed as follows:

In order to ensure that the Placement Deposit/Tuition Fees is returned to the proper party, the official receipt issued by the School at the time of payment must be returned to the School before any fees can be refunded.

The School will issue official tax receipts (fapiao) for all school fee payments except for the Placement Deposit. If you would like to request any special requirements/changes to the school fee receipt (fapiao) title, please inform the Accounts Division as soon as you make the payment. For any refund on school fees, the original fapiao must be returned to the School. Failure to do so will result in additional tax fees per government requirements.

School Bus Transportation Fees

The School Bus Service is optional and can be applied for during the Admissions Process directly via your Admissions Advisor. Any refund of School Bus Transportation Fees is subject to the date of notice of withdrawal.

Bus Routes Distance Semester 1 Semester 2 Annual Amount
1 up to 5 km 5,000 7,500 12,500
2 5 km to 15 km 5,600 8,400 14,000

School Lunch Fees

The School co-ordinates with an international catering company, which prepares a variety of lunch options for students on campus. Please note that Admissions must be notified about students with special dietary requirements or food related allergies. Lunch Fees are not included in Tuition Fees and are paid directly to the catering company. 

School Uniform

Payment of Tuition Fees will entitle the student one set of uniform items each year.

Settlement of Payment

Any payments received by the School will be applied first to the Placement Deposit if this fee has not yet been settled.  Any outstanding payments must be settled according to the School Fee Schedule.

Late Payment Charge

A late payment charge of two percent (2%) per month, compounded monthly, will be applied to all school fees that are overdue.
