Invoices for each school term fees including payment terms & conditions will be issued and distributed to parents through registered letter & e-mails as per above schedule. Note: Parents may elect to pay yearly fees in one go. Parents preferring such payment should contact NCBIS Finance department immediately upon receipt of the term 1 invoice, in order to receive a revised invoice covering the whole school year.
In case of EGP payments for GBP amounts, as the exchange rate, EGP/GBP is set each term, adjustments may be required later-on resulting into either a credit note or an additional invoice.
Due to the volume of new student applications and limited availability of places, the school retains the right to allocate the place to another student (on the waiting list) in case the fees have not been paid in full by the payment deadline.
It is the responsibility of the parent to contact the Finance Office if no bill has been received within the above mentioned schedule. Not receiving a copy of the bill will not be accepted as a reason for non-payment of term fees.
In case tuition fees are paid later than the designated deadline the school reserves the right to request parents for the next school year(s) for an upfront payment of the tuition fees for the entire year. Such a requirement will be communicated in writing to the parents.
n case due invoices are not paid prior to the “first day of term”, the school reserves the right to not allow children to attend the school until the full invoices have been paid.
A 3% discount on the tuition fees and the building fund is offered if invoices are fully settled within twenty days of invoice date. Please note that the discount will not apply under any circumstances for any payment after this date.
Refund on tuition fees and building fund in case of withdrawal of the student:
Verbal notification of withdrawal is not acceptable. Notification should be made in writing to the Finance Office with a copy to the Head of School (Primary / Secondary). Please note that refund will depend on the date of receipt by the Finance Office. An acknowledgment of receipt will be sent to parents.
Refundable Deposit (non-interest bearing)
For those students using the bus service one way (morning or afternoon) 75% of the termly bus fees will be charged. No reduction on bus fees is given in case students are suspended from bus service.
Under no circumstances will discounts be granted for students who have a reduced timetable or for whom periods of voluntary absence are granted. e.g. in the case of study leave granted to GCSE or IB students.
Students enrolling after the start of the term will be charged the full term fees, except if starting after midterm when only half term fees will be charged. The school is unable to calculate fees on a pro-rata basis.
Students leaving NCBIS for a short period wishing to maintain their place on roll
Absence request to be evaluated on termly basis upon which academic approval may be granted.
Full payment of Tuition Fees must be made for the period of absence within the designated deadline.
In the event of force majeure, which causes a student or students to withdraw from the school when fees have already been paid, these fees will not be refunded. Force majeure is defined as an event or effect, such as civil disturbances, acts of war and other civil, political or military events, labor unrest, earthquakes, nuclear disaster and extreme weather conditions that cannot be anticipated or controlled and would adversely affect school’s financial condition. This policy is necessary to protect the school’s financial interest with a view to continuing operations after the force majeure event has passed.
Changes to School Fees Structure
Levels of fees and other charges, as well as terms and conditions of payment, for students at NCBIS, are subject to a change and increase, once approved by the Board of Directors.
