Where the pupil has been referred to the School Doctor by the school there may be a charge. Private appointments for pupils or parents are also possible. These can be booked through the School office with a consultation fee payable to the School.

Financial Assistance

Full details of the School's policy on concession are contained in the "Financial Policy" document obtainable from the School office.

Development Fund

Tuition fees are set at a level to cover the School's day-to-day expenditure. This does not cover expenditure for major repair work or new school facilities.

The School is planning for further growth and development. We therefore ask parents to consider making additional contributions to our Development Fund. As a registered charity, such gifts can be made to the School in a number of different ways that enable tax to be reclaimed. This increases the value of your gift at no extra cost to you.

Details of how to make gifts to the School can be obtained from the Bursar.

Legal Notice

By your child(ren) attending Alder Bridge School you are deemed to have accepted these fees and the associated terms and conditions.
