In light of current circumstances and the fact that it is highly likely children will not physically be in school, we have reviewed our school fees for the Summer term 2020.
Whilst many schools continue to charge full fees, Bellevue Education have made the following arrangements for Brabyns Preparatory School:
Parents who are able, and willing to pay 100% fees - or more than 70% - are encouraged to do so; any contribution above the 70% will be put into a dedicated fund to support other parents at this school who are facing temporary hardship and need assistance with fees. Bellevue will match, pound for pound, any contribution made in this way.
|Fee per term||Fee per term with 15 Hours Entitlement*||Fee per term with 30 Hours Childcare**|
|Little Gems (2-3 Years) (1-5 sessions)||£1,974|
|Little Gems (6 sessions - 3 full days)||£2,147|
|Kindergarten (3-4 Years) (or full-time in Little Gems)||£2,647||£1,147|
|Reception, Years 1 - 4||£2,589||N/A||N/A|
|Years 5 & 6||£2,719||N/A||N/A|
We mainly have part-time (5 or 6 sessions) available for Little Gems children (2/3 year olds), if you would like full-time place please ask Mrs Mitchell with regard to availability.
When children move to Kindergarten (3/4 year olds) they automatically have a full-time place. Children do not need to attend full-time but are charged for this.
*EYEE Funding (15 Hours Free Entitlement)
Currently, from the term following your child's 3rd birthday, the Government provides 15 hours Free Entitlement for all 3 and 4 year olds for 38 weeks per year only. This is automatically taken off the fees. Currently this provides a saving of up to £750 per term. Fees will be charged for weeks over and above 38 weeks for all sessions at our current rates and terms.
**30 Hours Free Childcare
We offer 30 hours the free childcare scheme for 3 and 4 years olds for 38 weeks per year only. To qualify for the scheme, children must be registered to attend School on full time basis. Parents must be working and each earning at least £120 a week (on average) and not more than £100,000 each a year. To check your eligibility and apply online visit: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk. Parents who are not eligible for the new scheme will still receive the current 15 hours Free Entitlement.

This scheme allows parents to pay money into an online account. For every £8 paid in by parents the government will contribute £2, with an annual limit of £8000 annually per child. The arrangement is open to the self-employed. The scheme is paid for by parents from post-tax and employee NI contributions; there are certain conditions in terms of employment and income that parents must meet in order to pay into the scheme.
