Refund Policy

The following is the standard refund policy of Hamilton Boys’ High School.  No negotiations will be entered into once the conditions have been accepted and the contract has been signed by the student and/or his parents.

  • Should a student cancel an enrolment before commencing his study at the school, a minimum of 14 days’ notice is required.  A refund will be made of all the fees paid, less the administration fee and 10% of the tuition fee.
  • Once a student has commenced a course of study at Hamilton Boys’ High school no refunds will be given unless there are extraordinary circumstances.
  • In order to be eligible for a refund once the student has commenced his course of study, the parent or local guardian on behalf of the parent must apply in writing setting out the circumstances of the claim.  The notification must be received by the school one whole term in advance of the student leaving.
  • All refund requests must be made directly to the Director of International Students, Hamilton Boys’ High School, accompanied by the originals of all relevant documentation.
  • If there is a change in the immigration status of a student, a full term’s notification must be given.  The term’s notification will be effective from the end of the current term.
  • Refunds, if approved, will be made within a 30 day period directly to the country of origin in New Zealand dollars unless other arrangements have been made and approved by Hamilton Boys’ High School.
  • Should a student’s place in the school or homestay be withdrawn due to unacceptable behaviour, no refunds of either school fees or homestay fees will be made.
  • No refund will be made to a student who transfers to another educational institution.
  • Grievance procedures: complaints should in the first instance be discussed with the Director of International Students.  If the problem is not resolved, the Headmaster and/or the Board of Trustees at the school should be contacted.
