Placement Fee


PLACEMENT FEE - 2019

Grade N to Grade 12

The Diocesan College (“Bishops”) Council requires a Placement Fee from all new entrants into the school. The Placement Fee is a once-off, non-refundable payment per boy (applicable to all siblings) prior to commencing at the school.

Payment of the Placement Fee is an essential requirement prior to admission, and must be made immediately after being formally offered a place at the school. Proof of payment must accompany the signed “Acceptance of Place” form. Enrolment will not take place until the Placement Fee reflects as a deposit in the Bishops bank account.

Please note, the Placement Fee will be forfeited by the parent if a place has been accepted and the pupil is withdrawn before he has commenced at the school

The value of the Placement Fee will vary according to a boy’s grade of admission to the school as per the table below, and is valid from his point of entry for the duration of his career at Bishops.

The Placement Fee for 2019 is as follows:

Grade entering Bishops Placement Fee Note
From Grade N, R, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 to Grade 12 R37 500 Once off payment through to Grade 12 – NOT an annual payment per grade
