More detailed information will be available at the Registration Days on 13th or 15th January 2018, from the relevant school reception offices or from the HeronBridge College App.

2. School fees 2018
Below is a schedule of school fees for 2018


3. Registration fee
A non-refundable registration fee of R450 is payable with all new registrations and waiting list applications. 

4. Refundable deposit and annual deposit top-up
In terms of the enrolment contract, a deposit equal to one term’s fee is payable to secure a place. This deposit will be increased annually in January of each year so that at all times it is equal to one term’s fee. This annual increase is referred to as the “deposit top-up”. 

Statements will be sent out early in December detailing the top-up amount. Payment of the deposit top-up must be made before Registration Day in January of each year. 

At the end of a learner’s final term at HeronBridge (provided the requisite notice has been given) the full amount of the deposit held at that date will be credited to the fees’ account and the credit balance on the account refunded. 

5. Education Levy
From 2012 all compulsory grade specific charges are covered by an Education Levy calculated per grade. This levy is closely controlled and monitored, and will be for the benefit of all children in that grade during the year. The levy or part thereof is non-refundable, should a child not participate in any planned outing or event covered by the levy. Full details on how the levy is calculated and what is covered, are available on request from the schools. The 2018 levy amounts are not yet finalised and will be advised as soon as possible. 

School specific queries should be addressed to the relevant school – telephone (011) 540-4800.
