River House Academy Fees

We anticipate the majority of students will wish to enrol with us for the entire year. However, we are aware that some parents will prefer to enrol for a shorter period of time.

To help you choose the enrollment period suitable to your requirements we have laid out our fees below. These are intended to be indicative only.

In addition to our tuition fees, there are also registration and administrative fees which may be applicable. 

There are also discounts available based, for example, on the number of siblings enrolled, the length of time you enrol, and, on occasion, for an upfront payment of fees in their entirety.

Due to the limited resources available and given the individual requirements of each family, the precise fees (including all charges, taxes and discounts) applicable to you will be conveyed to you at the same time as a place is offered and only if a place is offered.

  • Termly rates will not be pro-rata

  • For any partial period of a term attended, the weekly rate (as laid out in the “Visiting Student” section below) will be applied as per the number of weeks attended during the partial period

  • Only in the case where the “Term rate” is the lesser amount when compared to the “Weekly Rate” – as may be the case for a student who only misses the first couple of weeks of term – will the “Term rate” be applied, but it will be applied in its entirety

We strongly encourage all parents who wish to take advantage of our termly rates to ensure students join us at the start of term. Our terms commence in the months of August, January, and April (see school calendar for precise dates).

In the event that your travel arrangements are such that it is not possible to join us at the start of term, then, subject to available places, students may be permitted to join during term-time. In such instances, fees will be calculated in advance on a case by case basis.

IGCSE students in Years 10 and 11 are required to pay for all course textbooks and exam fees.

IMPORTANT - Notes on how we calculate and apply your fees

With additional flexibility comes additional complexity. RHA will calculate your fees (including all charges and discounts) on a case by case basis at the same time that we make an offer of a place at RHA. Someone at the school will be happy to talk through any questions arising at that time. Please note, however, once a place at RHA has been accepted it is taken to mean you have understood the fees and how they are applied. Clarifications and amendments cannot be applied subsequently, even if it transpires the extent and nature of the commitment was not fully realised by you when the agreement was signed.

In some cases, the fees applicable to you will be calculated on a “blended” basis. For example, a student joining us for the last few weeks of the August term and remaining with us for the entirety of the January term will have their fees for the first few weeks calculated at the “Visiting Students” rate, and for the January term calculated at the “Term Students” rate. 

We will always endeavour to calculate the best value fees as per your preferred attendance dates. In some cases, we may point out that by adjusting your dates a little bit you could take advantage of a different and better value enrolment period. But, subject to the availability of places, the final decision on attendance dates is your own.

It may be the case that your plans change and you decide to stay longer with us than originally planned. In such a situation please communicate your change of plans as early as possible to the school. Assuming there are places available for your child and entirely at the discretion of the school, it may be possible to adjust your fees such that you pay a lesser amount as per your new attendance dates.

You and/or your partner are solely responsible for ensuring fees are paid in full and on time as per our agreement. RHA will not accept any excuse for late or missing payments.

RHA has a code of conduct and standards expected of all our students. In the extreme and rare case that a student is asked to leave RHA no refunds will be made available.

Finally, after attendance begins, in the event that there is a dispute over fees and you disagree with how we have assessed fees, then as per our regulations, there is an appeals process to be followed. In the first instance, there will be an interview with the parent representative of the school. In the second instance, if the dispute cannot be adequately resolved with the parent representative, then the matter may be raised to the Board of Governors who will look at it and make the final decision. Their decision may not be appealed.

* Fees are non-refundable in any circumstance except at the entire and sole discretion of RHA.

** At the time RHA makes an offer of a place to you, the fee covering the entire period of enrollment will be conveyed. When you accept the offer you commit to the entire fee. 

*** Periods of less than eight weeks enrollment may be available, but entirely and at the sole discretion of RHA. In the case where a student attends for an eight week period, leaves and returns at a later date, a new minimum eight week period of enrollment will be required unless by prior arrangement with RHA.

**** Consecutive attendance: It is not possible to sign up for eight weeks, attend for a four week period, leave for a couple of weeks, and return for another four weeks. The two absent weeks will be tallied against the total eight weeks signed up for.
