    2019/20 School Membership Fee

    In the past few years, our school’s fees are quite low. Due to the increase in teachers’ salaries and venues’ rent, unexpected additional operating costs (such as professional cleaners), the school committee had to make some adjustment to the fees for 2019/20.

    The adjustment is as follows:

    • Chinese Class Fee: Increase £15.00/year (equivalent to 50p/week, 25p/hour)
    • Interest class fee: Increase £10.00/year (equivalent to 33p/week)

    The adjusted class charges are as follows:

    Class 2018/19 Fee* (Old) 2019/20 Fee* (new)
    Chinese Class (C1–C9) £115 £130
    Exam Class (CN5, Higher) £145 £160
    Happy Chinese Class (HC) £180 £195
    Activity classes (with the exception of music classes, the charges for music classes have not yet been determined) ** £60 £70
    Adult Business Chinese Class *** £120 £129.95

    Note:

    1. This figure is the full fee. If payment is made before September 1, 2019, a £10 discount is for the Chinese class.
    2. The cost of the music class is still to be confirmed.
    3. The cost of a business Chinese class is decided by the Confucius Institute.

    Cleaning fee

    • Students in the language class need to pay a cleaning fee of £ 10 per year.
    • Students in each activity class need to pay a cleaning fee of £ 5 per year.
    • Students attending both Chinese class and Activity class at the same time only need to pay £10 per year.
