St Mark's Tuition Fee Assistance Plan
The St Mark’s Tuition Fee Assistance Plan was introduced to assist families who may experience financial challenges due to unforeseen personal and economic circumstances. All School families are able to approach the School in confidence at any time to enquire and/or request support through the Tuition Fee Assistance Plan. The School will also be willing to consider arrangements for alternate payment plans during short-term financial difficulties.
Once the School has received a request for possible assistance, the School will set up a confidential appointment with the Business Manager to discuss the family’s personal circumstances. Following this meeting, a formal request for support may be submitted, at which time the family may be required to provide supporting documentation in order to fulfill a means test.
A decision on a request for support will be made as quickly as possible, and an appropriate Assistance Plan will be set up for the family. The Tuition Fee Assistance Plan will be reviewed annually.
If you would like more information on the St Mark’s Tuition Fee Assistance Plan, please download and complete this form and submit it to the School via email to email@example.com, or in a sealed envelope addressed to the Business Manager and marked as confidential.
