Term Time Only Places

Term-time only contracts 

Secret Garden is able to offer a limited number of term-time only contracts where at least one parent is employed in a school setting

  • Term-time only contracts are subject to availability and only available by arrangement
  • We require term-time only children to attend for all of the 38 weeks of West Sussex State school term dates as a minimum. Additional days can be booked if the parents are working to different term dates
  • It is strongly recommended that term-time only children attend for a reduced number of sessions during all school holidays, in particular the summer break, to ensure continuity and avoid having to re-settle the child after a prolonged period of absence
  • A non-refundable registration fee of £500 and a deposit of £200 is required to reserve a term-time only place. The registration fee is a contribution to the cost of holding your child’s place during the 14 weeks of the year you will not be liable for paying fees. The £200 deposit will be credited to your final invoice subject to two months written notice being given
