All parents agree to abide by this policy when they apply for a seat for their child at the school. School tuition fees and any required learning support fees are subject to approval and regulation by the Ministry of Education and the Directorate of Private Education. Tuition fees and any required learning support fees may be increased subject to Ministry of Education and Private Education Directorate approval. Invoices for tuition fees and any required learning support fees are issued electronically in all cases.

  1. Payment of the Registration and Testing Fee:
    1. The BD50 application fee is non-refundable and is payable when the application form is sent to the school.
    2. The BD100 registration fee is non-refundable and is payable within 72 hours of a seat being offered, otherwise the offer will automatically be withdrawn.
    3. The BD50 testing fee is non-refundable and is required on the day of testing or in advance with the registration fee if the seat is offered while the child is overseas.
    4. Payment of the tuition fees and any required learning support fees in full completes our registration requirements.
  2. Payment of the School Tuition fees and any required learning support fees :
    1. Termly re-registration is required to retain a seat at the school. This is done by paying the tuition fees and any required learning support fees in full by the due date indicated on the invoice. Periodic reminders may be sent prior to the due date to assist in encouraging prompt payment.
    2. Failure to pay the tuition fees and any required learning support fees in full by the due date on the invoice will automatically indicate to the school that the seat Is not required for the following term and as such, the seat will be cancelled and offered elsewhere.
    3. It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that all tuition fees and any required learning support fees are paid on time and in full in order to secure their child’s seat for the subsequent term.
    4. Parents are responsible for the payment of tuition fees and any required learning support fees and the school will not become involved in the collection of tuition fees and any required learning support fees from companies. It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that the company payments are made to the school on or before the specified due date stated on the invoice.
    5. The school administration department will send via email a notice of withdrawal to the parents in the event of non-payment of tuition fees and any required learning support fees by the specified due date on the invoice.
  3. Tuition fees and any required learning support fees are payable three (3) times per academic year.
    1. Autumn Term – Term 1 (first term of each academic year) tuition fees and any required learning support fees cover September-December and are due in two parts:
      1.  A non-refundable deposit of BD500 should be paid on or by the first working day of April (Spring Term – Term 2, the second term of each academic year)
      2. The balance of tuition fees and any required learning support fees remaining are to be paid in full by the first working day in June (Summer Term – Term 3, the third and final term of each academic year)
    2. Spring Term – Term 2 (second term of each academic year) tuition fees and any required learning support fees cover January-April and are due on or before November 15th of the previous calendar year.
    3. Summer Term – Term 3 (third term of each academic year) tuition fees and any required learning support fees cover April-June/July and are due on the first working day of March of the same calendar year.
  4. Learning support tuition fees are invoiced per term according to each child’s specific needs where necessary and where they have been agreed in advance by the parent/s. Where learning support is required and agreed, payment of learning support fees is mandatory in order to retain a child’s seat within the school. See point 2 above. Where learning support is required, but NOT agreed we would revert to the conditions outlined in the section: “The Admissions Procedure for pupils with Additional Learning Needs”” within our admissions policy, thus rendering the re-registration process incomplete and the student would not be re-registered for the next term and the seat will be cancelled and offered elsewhere – see point 2.2 above.
  5. Note regarding Half Term:

VAT at the prevailing rate will be added to Optional fees where required in accordance with Bahrain VAT Law issued by the Ministry of Finance and National Economy and National Bureau of Revenue.

  9.  If, for any reason, there are tuition fees and any required learning support fees owing and/or library books or resources borrowed which have not been returned by the child’s last day, the school will withhold all leaving documentation (transfer certificate and school report) and inform the relevant authorities accordingly, until all accounts are cleared and all items have been returned.
