The governors reserve the right to vary fees and charges termly, with a term’s notice. Fee changes are normally made annually for the start of each new school year.

Fees are payable in full by termly direct debit, collected on the first day of term. Alternatively, parents can opt to pay fees and extras in monthly repayments through School Fee Plan. Credit is subject to status, affordability, terms and conditions apply.

We accept childcare vouchers in either part or full payment of the Nursery fees.
Under current HMRC rules, we can only accept payment of fees by childcare voucher up to and including the term in which your child turns five. After this date, school fees are no longer classified as childcare costs. You can continue to use the vouchers to pay for breakfast club, after school clubs, late stay and holiday clubs throughout your child’s time at the school.
Free Entitlement to Early Education
The School is not eligible to participate in the Free Entitlement to Early Education scheme which allows some nurseries to offer a certain number of free hours each week.
Blackheath Prep is committed to broadening access to the school by offering means-tested financial support with school fees to eligible parents. This support is known as a Bursarial Award and such an award may be offered to parents of children for whom a Blackheath Prep education would be inaccessible without financial support.
In order to meet the requirements of the Charity Commission, bursaries are means-tested. The assessment of need is undertaken by an external company to ensure transparency and fairness. This company will, following their assessment, make a recommendation to the school for their consideration.
Bursaries are offered for 12 months at a time, after which the family is required to provide fresh information about their circumstances for every year that their child attends the school. Levels of support may vary according to fluctuations in parental income.
Bursaries are not available in the Nursery.
For more information, please contact the School’s Bursar.
