Fees

St Christopher's School is a not-for-profit organization. This means it has no owners or shareholders making money from the School. All fee income is used to operate the School and any surpluses are applied to school development.

The School is governed by a Board of Governors. Board members, under the School’s constitution, may not hold any paid position in the School and receive no compensation for work they do for St Christopher’s.

It is very important that parents understand that tuition and other fees rise as children move up through the School. For example, Senior School fees are very significantly greater than those for younger children. Fees also increase regularly due to increased running costs.

Over the last 15 years or so the average rise has been about 4% per year. In the future, it is likely that in some years increases will be above this level, but in others, they may be lower. No guarantee can be given as to the year-to-year increase or the average increase over time. Parents are most strongly advised to bear this factor in mind when they enroll children in the School.

Note 1: Fees are approved by the Ministry of Education

Note 2: Other fees are payable in individual cases. These include GCSE, GCE Advanced Level and IB examination entry fees, optional Instrumental Tuition, EAL (specifically Infant School children) and optional out-of-hours lessons for certain students. Fees for these and any other individual cases will be notified separately.

Payment of tuition fees

All fees must be paid in accordance with the invoice on or before the last day of the previous term.

Invoices for the term’s fees are generally issued in the week following the previous half term (i.e. the half term holiday or the mid-term point as indicated in the School calendar).  Except where a Company Block Billing arrangement has been agreed with the School, it is the parent’s responsibility to arrange for the settlement of the invoice by the payment due date. Should any parent not receive an invoice a week later than half term, then the Accounts Office should be contacted and a duplicate invoice obtained. Either misplacement or non-receipt of the original invoice or late submission of an invoice to an employer for settlement will not be considered a valid reason for failure to pay the fees by the due date.

Failure to pay the fees by the last day of the preceding term (or invoice due date) may cause the School to exclude a child and others from the same family from School until payment is made in full.  With respect to persistent late payers, the School reserves the right, without giving notice to the parent, to cancel the places allocated to the family, and additionally, offer them to new children waiting for places at the School.

When unforeseen and pressing circumstances result in the child having to leave before the start of the new term, a full refund of fees will be made so long as the School has been given notice two full weeks before the beginning of term.

Fees for the term are payable in full regardless of sickness or absence for other reasons (including study leave). No refund will be given except in the circumstances outlined in 4) above.  If a child is scheduled to join the School after the mid-term point, the registration fee and half the term’s tuition fee will be payable.

Method of payment of tuition fees

Payment may be made by direct bank transfer, cheque or by cash at our Accounts Office at the Saar Campus. Bank transfer payments may be made at any AUB branch in Bahrain in accordance with the instructions on the invoice. Related bank charges are the responsibility of the remitter.

Other fees

Other fees are payable in individual cases. These include GCSE, A-Level and International Baccalaureate examination entry fees, optional Instrumental Tuition, English as an Additional Language (specific Infant School pupils) and optional, out-of-hours lessons for certain pupils.  Fees for these and arrangements for payment will be notified separately.

Please note that total GCSE, A-level and IB fees can amount to several hundred Bahrain Dinars. Entry into examinations and activities for which fees are due will be denied where these have not been paid.

Uniform

Our uniform was designed jointly by St Christopher’s and Zaks. The materials, colours and trims were carefully selected; indeed some of the fabrics are unique to St Chris and have been woven especially for us.

It is important to preserve the excellent appearance of the uniform and to have consistency across the school. To help ensure this, our preferred and the designated supplier is Zaks: only they can guarantee that the uniform matches the required specification.

The only exceptions to this are shoes, socks and tights, which may easily be purchased from other retailers – although Zaks are able to provide assistance with some of these items as well.
