For parents considering investing in an independent education, it is a major financial decision. However, this is counter balanced by the knowledge that their daughter is being given the best possible start in life. Our fees are competitively priced and provide excellent value for money especially in terms of our small teacher pupil ratio.

Fees in Advance
The Board of Directors has agreed that fees will be held at the 2011–12 rate if any parent would like to pay one full year's fees in advance. Full payment must be made by 30 June 2012.
The Board strongly recommends that fees be paid by Direct Debit in nine or twelve equal instalments on the first banking day of September to May inclusive. A direct debit mandate is available from the Business Office. If you are unable to pay by direct debit, fees are due on receipt of the term's fee note, or on the first day of term, whichever is the later.
This year we are able to offer 3 direct debit options:
Nine equal instalments on the first banking day of September to May inclusive. A £50 administration charge will be payable in the event of each missed instalment.
Twelve equal instalments from the first banking day of July to June inclusive. A £50 administration charge will be payable in the event of each missed instalment.
Termly payment of three equal instalments from the first banking day of September, January and April. A £100 administration charge will be payable in the event of each missed instalment.
As a consequence of further delay, parents will be asked to remove their child from the school if full payment of fees are not received by the end of each term.
The School accepts childcare vouchers for Nursery and After School supervision only.
If you are experiencing difficulty in paying all or part of the tuition fees, you should contact the Business Manager as soon as possible. The Business Manager will help you draw up a payment schedule to facilitate the payment of fees.
Notice of Withdrawal
Parents are reminded that a full term’s notice of withdrawal is required, which failing, the next term’s fee is payable in full, whether or not the pupil attends the school. This is a contractual term of your child’s attendance at the school and is always enforced. To avoid any misunderstanding, notice should always be given in writing to the Principal prior to the start of the pupil’s last term.
For current S5 pupils, written notice of withdrawal must be given by Monday 13 August 2012, failing which a term’s fee will be payable.
Senior School Bursaries
Craigholme School offers a limited number of J7–S6 bursaries. Please contact the Business Office for more information.
The school is currently in a partnership arrangement with Glasgow City Council whereby funding is available to parents of qualifying pupils. This operates on a termly basis, the school receives a bulk payment from the council which is then remitted to the parent by cheque. Please contact the Business Office for further information.
Craigholme participates in the Childcare Voucher scheme whereby working parents can exchange up to £243 per month (£55 per week) of their gross salary for Childcare Vouchers. The exchanged proportion of the salary is exempt from tax and National Insurance contributions. Vouchers can be used for Nursery fees, afterschool care, childminders, after school clubs, extra-curricular activities (including sports camps). To find out if you can receive Childcare Vouchers, please speak to your employer.
