Admission to FunTech

Admission to FunTech is at the discretion of the Principal or it’s delegates. No student may be admitted until the Enrolment Form has been completed and the terms and conditions signed by a parent or legal guardian and returned to FunTech, together with the enrolment fee of £55.00

 

FunTech Authority

FunTech reserves the right to take steps it reasonably believes to be necessary to maintain discipline, ensure safety and wellbeing of staff and students.

 

Late Enrolments

Where an enrolment has taken place after our first week of the academic year, FunTech will discuss scheduling catch-up sessions to ensure your child has covered all the content. Whist these catch-ups are scheduled or underway you are required to bring your account up to date and inline with the payment schedules below.

 

Paying Annually

Full payment must be received within 14 calendar days of receiving the invoice to receive a 5% discount. This payment can be received via Direct Debit, Bank Transfer and Childcare Vouchers. Please note, catch-up and any other payments will be taken via Direct Debit therefore you are still required to sign up to a Direct Debit.

 

Paying Termly

Termly fees are paid a term in advance via Direct Debit.

View your payment plan based on which course your child attends and when they have enrolled. Where an enrolment has been received after the start of the academic year, your initial payment will include fees up to the end of the current term.

 

 

Please note: An Enrolment Fee and Catch-up fees (if any) are also taken via Direct Debit. Where a catch-up has taken place, you will be notified of the fee and advised of when it will be taken from your account, usually the following month.

 

Paying Monthly

Monthly fees are paid a month in advance via Direct Debit.

View your payment plan based on which course your child attends and when they enrolled. Where an enrolment has been received after the start of the academic year, your initial payment may differ to the remainder of your monthly payments.

 

 

Please note: An Enrolment Fee and Catch-up fees (if any) are also taken via Direct Debit. Where a catch-up has taken place, you will be notified of the fee and advised of when it will be taken from your account.

 

Childcare Vouchers

FunTech welcomes Childcare Vouchers which are a great saving for ALL working parents who pay Income Tax and National Insurance. For more information on Childcare Vouchers, please click here.

Where you have selected to pay via Childcare Vouchers, please ensure payments are received by FunTech by the 5th of each month. Should you have a shortfall with Childcare Vouchers, a top-up payment will be required, this will be taken via Direct Debit by the 10th of the month.

 

Late Fee

Where a Direct Debit setup has been cancelled and therefore we are unable to collect your payment by the 5th of the month, a late fee of £20.00 will be added to your account.

Late fees are applied to each monthly instalment that is late for example 1 month in arrears = £20.00, two months in arrears = £40.00, three months in arrears = £60.00 and so on, for payments that are 2.4 months in arrears the months will be rounded up and late fees applied accordingly.

 

Late Arrivals, Early Departures or Missing Lessons

For students arriving late, leaving early or missing a lesson, FunTech may request that your child take supplementary individual tuition. Where there is no available lesson running that week a catch-up will be required, please click here to see these rates.

 

Catch-up Lessons

Please notify us in advance of the lesson going to be missed and should we have the same lesson running that week with an available space, we will be happy to offer this to you as an alternative, free of charge.

If you are either unable to attend the alternative lesson offered (or that we are now running the following week’s classes, then there is a catch-up fee depending on the course that your child has enrolled onto. Please click here to see the prices of these.

As Catch-ups are usually one-to-one sessions, if we require a little longer you will not incur any further charges.

Please note:

  • If you need to cancel a catch-up lesson for any reason the fee is still applicable unless 48 hours’ notice is given.
  • Catch-up fees (if any) are taken via Direct Debit. Where a catch-up has taken place, you will be notified of the fee and advised of when it will be taken from your account, usually the following month.

 

Financial Difficulties

If at any point you have difficultly in meeting your agreed payments, please contact a member of staff in our Accounts Department on 01628 621216 or email accounts@funtech.co.uk

Please note: if we have not heard from you before your payment is due, late fees will apply.

 

Tuition and Examination Fees are Non-Returnable

No reduction in fees is made in respect of absence from FunTech during any part of the official term, whether on account of illness or any other cause.

 

Suspension and Expulsion

FunTech reserves the right to suspend or remove any student whose attendance, work or behaviour is, in their reasonable opinion, unsatisfactory. Under such circumstances, FunTech will be under no obligation to return any fees.
