On acceptance of an offer, a deposit of £1,000 (£500 refunded during the second term) for students entering Ratcliffe College from the UK and of £5000 (£3000 refunded during the second term) for students from overseas, is payable on entry to the Preparatory School and Senior School.

A deposit is not payable on entry to the Nursery, but will be required when the child moves to the Preparatory School.  The deposit is not refundable if the student subsequently fails to take up the place.  As fees are payable termly in advance, the deposit will be held until the student leaves and may be used to offset charges incurred during the final term.  Any balance remaining will be refunded at that time.

When accepting an offer, parents of Catholic students should send a copy of a certificate of baptism for their child or, if there is difficulty obtaining this, a referral by their parish priest confirming baptism, in accordance with the laws of the Catholic Church.  Where possible, acceptances from families of other denominations and faiths should be accompanied by a letter from a minister of their faith to whom they are known.  This information will assist the School in ensuring that appropriate provision is made in the matters of sacramental preparation and religious practice.
