Payment of fees

There are two ways to pay fees for the School:

Direct Debit

Our preferred method of payment is by direct debit from a UK bank account. This is a simple and convenient way of paying school fees. You will still receive a termly bill as normal prior to the collection date which will provide details of the amounts due.

We offer two direct debit payment options for fees:

  • Termly direct debit – where the fees for each term are collected in full on or shortly after the first day of each term
  • Monthly direct debit – where each term’s fees are collected over three equal monthly instalments. The collection dates are:
    • Michaelmas term – on or after the first of September, October and November
    • Lent term – on or after the first of January, February and March
    • Trinity term – on or after the first of April, May and June

Any extras on the fee bill will be collected by direct debit termly on or after the first day of the next term.

To set up a Direct Debit payment arrangement, please complete the direct debit mandate and covering letter and return these to the Income and Fees Administrator at the address below.

Bank Transfers or Cheques

If you wish to pay by bank transfer or cheque, payment must be received in cleared funds on or before the start of each term.

The bank details for payment are included on your fee bill or can be obtained from the Income and Fees Administrator. Please ensure the pupil’s name and reference number are included in the payment reference. Cheques should be addressed to Woodbridge School for the attention of the Income and Fees Administrator.

Please note that we do not accept cash as payment for fees.

Fees in advance scheme

The School operates a fees in advance scheme whereby a lump sum payment can be made to cover future fees. Where fees are paid in advance for at least two years, a discount is provided which is free of tax.  For further details and to request a personalised illustration please contact Simon Stafford, Director of Finance, on SStafford@seckford-foundation.org.uk

International Payments

For international payments, our preferred method of payment is by using Flywire. Flywire allows you to pay from almost any country and any bank. They also offer excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save money, compared to traditional banks.

Pay international fees

Alternatively, payments can be made by bank transfer as above. Please ensure the pupil’s name and reference number are included in the payment reference.

Queries and downloads

For all queries or correspondence on fees, please contact Martin Champion, Income and Fees Administrator.  If you do anticipate any difficulties in meeting payments please contact Martin as soon as possible. We prefer to hear early on about any potential issues and will always deal with your case with complete confidentiality.
