Generally, fees are set for the whole year with no age-related incremental increase as the pupils progress through the school.
The school aims to allow pupils to contribute to the vision of our school.
Twice yearly from years 3 – 6 pupils put themselves forward to serve on the School Council and are voted for by their peers.
They meet weekly and help organise charity fundraising as well as being the pupil voice to the School Management.

WELCOME, YOU HAVE ARRIVED!
The Main Entrance is in the centre of the building, next to the Head's parking area.
The Benedictine Congregation of Our Lady of Mount Olivet was founded in 1319 by Blessed Bernard Ptolomei. He built the first monastery in the mountains near Sienna and called it Monte Oliveto Maggiore and the Archabbey is still on the same site. The congregation is a branch of the old tree of the Benedictine Order started by Saint Benedict around 500AD. The monks wear white habit in honour of the purity of Our Lady, to whom they have a special devotion.
A programme of early intervention encourages all children in the School to achieve their maximum potential. Any difficulties identified by the class teacher are discussed with parents and the teacher in charge of Progress Studies. Where necessary, parents may be advised to seek further advice from an external source. On application to Vita et Pax, it is the responsibility of parents to advise the school of any known difficulties in order that we may be able to assess our ability to manage the learning environment for each child.
The school strives to provide a warm and homely community, in which everyone is valued as an individual.
Pupils are encouraged to get into the habit of learning and to respect each other's feelings and property.
It is our aim that all children should be hard working, well mannered, articulate, confident and ready to meet the challenge of being good citizens in the future.
