Costs and Payment 2017-18

Costs and Payment

 

A deposit of 50% should be by cheque made payable to Altrincham Grammar School for Girls.

The pupil’s name, Form Class and D of E award level should be clearly marked on the back of each cheque. This should be handed into reception by 19th October 2017

 

Unfortunately, failure to meet a payment by this date must mean that a place will not be booked.

 

The balance should be paid by Parent Pay by 1st January 2018 and all monies are nonrefundable.  If the balance is not paid by this date then the deposit will be lost and your child will not have a place on the scheme.  Any issues with paying this please see Miss Hickman.

 

Parents/Guardians must note that on top of the payment cost for the programme, they may need to buy personal equipment.
