Please note all packages include an initial visit from a member of the ‘Academic’ team. Package upgrades can be made at any time during the term and will be applied to the account immediately when requested in writing. Any arrangements required outside the scope of your current package will be facilitated however an arrangement fee of £50.00 will be added to your account per each new arrangement.

Expenses The expenses are applied at cost to the students account. Where possible we arrange homestay and transport arrangements as close as we can to the school to minimise travel time & costs.

Registration Fee A one off charge to new students signing with Academic Guardians.

Expenses Deposit This charge covers any future expenses incurred for the students during the term for instance homestays and transport arrangements. This amount will always need to be topped up either at the end of term or when the expenses exceed the initial deposit amount (whichever is sooner).

Guardian Fee You have the option to pay your Guardian fee every term (3 terms) or once annually if you prefer. Please note a discount is applied to parents paying yearly. This will give you access to our professional guardianship service and assistance whenever required.
