Membership Fee and Donations
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|
- This figure is the full fee.
- The cost of the music class is still to be confirmed.
- The cost of a business Chinese class is decided by the Confucius Institute.
- 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.
