Placement Deposit (for new students)
The Placement Deposit is a one-time, refundable, non-interest bearing deposit required to be paid to the School, and is held by the School for the duration of the student’s enrolment. The School has a first right to settle any outstanding fees or amounts owing to the School, either during the student’s attendance at the School, or after the student’s withdrawal, using the Placement Deposit.
The Placement Deposit, after deductions for any amounts owing to the School, will be returned to parents within 45 days after all withdrawal procedures have been completed.

Payment of the Placement Deposit will not, in and of itself, guarantee a school placement; all other admission and school requirements must be met. Furthermore, the Placement Deposit cannot be considered a substitute for any other fees or charges that are otherwise due.
For returning students, if your child(ren) is/are anticipated to pay a different amount of Placement Deposit in the following academic year, parent/guardian must top up the difference, or the School will refund any surplus amount by no later than the end of the current academic year.
