How much notice do I have to give if my child leaves?

A term’s notice is required (by the final teaching day of your child’s penultimate term at the school), in writing to the Headmaster, for the withdrawal of a student or a term’s fee will be charged in lieu of notice.  If a term’s notice is not given the deposit will not be returned.

Are there any supplemental charges?

Where students are involved in a school trip involving additional costs such as theatre tickets, out of area transport etc, the cost for the activity will be outlined to parents in advance in order that a decision can be made by the parent whether or not they wish their child to participate.  The costs of these trips will be accrued for the previous term plus any advance charges for items such as instrumental hire and residential trips and added to the termly fee invoices.

Can my child bring their own lunch?

We provide a nutritional and healthy two course lunch during the school day (cooked in house) which includes a hot meal with the option to eat from the salad bar. Vegetarian options are also available.  Special dietary requirements can be arranged. Menus are displayed on our website www.kewhouseschool.com.  Communal lunch is a key element of the school day at Kew House School and the school does not provide facilities for packed lunches.

Do you provide music instrumental tuition?

Kew House School offers instrumental tuition on a range of musical instruments during the school day.  Tuition is delivered by freelance instrumental tutors approved by the school.  The costs per lesson vary dependent on whether lessons are group or individual and on the instrument involved. Instrumental tutors will invoice parents direct for the costs of such tuition.

Does the school provide insurance policies?

Like all Independent schools, Kew House School has comprehensive operational insurance. Parents are asked to ensure that valuables such as musical instruments are included in their household policy.  Parents wishing to take out additional personal accident insurance or school fees insurance are advised to make their own arrangements.

Are there any discounts for siblings?
