    • Tuition fees are billed in advance in ten consecutive monthly payments which are payable by the last day of the month of invoice as follows: 31st January, 28th February, 31st March, 30th April, 31st May, 30th June, 31st July, 31st August, 30th September, 31st October. Parents are advised that children may be refused admittance to classes through failure to comply with this rule.
    • When acceptance of vacancy takes place the year before, an entrance fee must be paid to confirm the enrolment. If acceptance takes place during the school year, an entrance fee and the corresponding quotas should be paid prior to entering The British Schools.
    • School fees not paid on time will generate a debt that will accrue interest, which will be fixed periodically by the School in accordance with the maximum ruling legal rate.
    • A guarantee deposit equivalent to three quotas of the ruling annual tuition fees may be exacted. These are refundable when the pupil leaves The British Schools.
    • In the case of absence due to prolonged illness or absence from Uruguay, tuition fees will be charged as follows:
      1. Up to four consecutive weeks of absence, full tuition fees will be charged.
      2. Thereafter, half of the prorated tuition fees will be charged for continued absence.
    • Fees for external examinations must be paid before the examination is taken.
    • Annual fees paid before 10th February will benefit from a special discount.
  • Fees can be paid in all branches of the banks shown on the invoice in the box marked "Bancos Disponibles". When payment is made at automatic cashiers, the “Nº de referencia” which appears in the yellow box on the invoice should always be included while following instructions. Please keep this receipt plus the bank ticket issued by the machine. In “Saldos Pendientes” (if any) you will find the overdue statement of the account up to the date printed. If you have any questions regarding the above, please contact the School on 2600 34 21, ext. 128.

  • Parents or guardians are required to give three months notice in writing to the School's Administration Department prior to removing their child from The British Schools - failure to do so would result in one quota of the annual tuition fees being payable.

    The School is entitled to request the removal of a student, or to refuse to re-enrol a student for the following academic year. The British Schools retains the right to make such a decision independently, at any moment, and without explanation.
