Fees in Response to Covid-19 (Coronavirus)
In light of current circumstances and the fact that it is highly likely children will not physically be in school, we have reviewed our school fees for the Summer Term 2020. Whilst many schools continue to charge full fees, Bellevue Education have made the following arrangements for Gateway School:
- Parents of will be asked to pay 70% of day fees
- Parents who are able, and willing, to pay 100% fees – or more than 70% – are encouraged to do so; any contribution above the 70% will be put into a dedicated fund to support other parents at this school who are facing temporary hardship and need assistance with fees. Bellevue will match, pound for pound, any contribution made in this way.
- Parents of nursery or pre-Reception aged children will be charged 15% of their last monthly bill. We recognise we are not delivering online learning for this group, but your contribution will very much help in supporting the school.
- Fees in September 2020 will at the minimum be kept at the 2019/20 original level, although we will continue to be mindful of the economic climate.
