Fees and Funding
We keep fees to a minimum in recognition of the burden on parents who choose to invest in Christian education. We do not receive funding from the government or any other external body, but the fees payable at the school are lower than most other similar independent schools.
In a spirit of partnership with parents, teachers supplement costs by accepting a substantially reduced salary. There is an assumption that the community works together collaboratively, such that parents and church communities resource the school in other ways. Voluntary work, sourcing equipment and sponsorship are examples.
The fee scale encourages parents to join CFS in lower school. If the school was to grow to its upper limit of 200 pupils, the cost per pupil would decrease.
