Private school fees finance

School fee finance can make the cost of education more manageable for parents and guardians, supporting your existing cohort and encouraging new families to apply.

We know parents want to invest in and maintain their child’s quality education. But, with increasing demands on their finances, finding the money to pay for school fees upfront can be a challenge. Allow parents to pay in monthly instalments instead.

Though parents will spread the cost of their child’s school fees, you’ll receive the funds in full. This helps to improve your cash flow so you can further invest in your facilities. Ready to introduce better ways to pay at your school?
