Help with fees

Tax Credit Information
If you are eligible for Tax Credits, and your child is aged 15 or younger, you may be able to claim some of the course fees as “approved activity based childcare costs”. For more information contact the Tax Credit Helpline on 0845 300 3900. You will need the name of your childcare provider (Bottisham Village College) and registration number (110860).

Other support available
A subsidy for low income families will be considered in some  circumstances, particularly if your child is eligible for free school meals - please contact the Finance Office for further information.
Families with 2 or more children, participating in 2 or more activities each, will be entitled to a 20% discount on the combined fee.

Fees for music activities
The music department is delighted to introduce some specialist tuition for some of the after school music activities, in order to develop our provision and  enhance student progression.
