Match assists Parent who was liable to pay independent school fees

Match assists Parent who was liable to pay independent school fees

Our clients approached us further to issues they had been experiencing with their son’s independent school. Our clients had sent their son to a prestigious independent boarding school in the UK to gain his qualifications and to improve his English language skills. After a turbulent time during the first term, during which the school had fallen short on their pastoral care duties, our clients decided to immediately withdraw their son from school. Legally our clients were liable to pay a term’s fees in lieu of notice as they had withdrawn their son without giving the school the requisite notice or payment in lieu of notice. Our clients sought assistance from us as they wanted a refund of the fees which they had paid up front. We wrote a strong letter to the school on a ‘without prejudice’ basis putting forward the school’s shortcomings. The school agreed to a settlement which our clients were happy with.

We were very happy to hand over our case to Match Solicitors and allow them to do what they do best - they won our appeal. They make no guarantees but at least you know, whether you win or lose, they have done their best for your child.
