Charges will be made for school trips, taxis (including those to and from medical appointments), school photographs and dance and music examination fees. A £45 production cost contribution is charged for student participation in school productions. A £50 fee covers the cost of the school magazine and attendance at all internal performances. These and any other extras arising will be billed in advance or in arrears, at the discretion of the school.
The school strongly advises that all Lower School dance and professional students subscribe to a Private Medical Insurance Scheme. Although the school cannot make this compulsory, we feel it supports student training. In addition, a compulsory charge of £100 per year will be invoiced to all dance and musical theatre students in the autumn term for the Healthy Dance Screening Programme. More details are available from the Finance Office.
A full term’s fees are required prior to entering The Hammond, along with the returnable deposit referenced above. For students whose first language is not English, extra language tuition under the English as an Additional Language Service (EAL) will be arranged, for which additional charges will apply. Please contact the School Secretary for more details.
These can be organised for music and drama students on request. Please contact the School Finance & Administration Department for more details.
