FEES AND BURSARIES
The St Michael Steiner School receives no state funding but, like all Steiner schools, does not wish to be exclusive, believing that it is healthy for children from all backgrounds to mix. Therefore the school is a registered charity and fees are kept low with bursaries offered as far as possible. In London, overheads are very high, so we ask those who are able to contribute to our Bursary fund.
A deposit of £1000 is payable upon acceptance of the offer of a place. Withdrawal of a child requires one full term’s notice or the payment of a full term’s fees and the deposit is held until the child’s final term payment has been received. Arrangements can be made, on request, for payment of the deposit to be spread over the child’s first term in the school.
