Private School concedes fees due to inappropriate treatment of pupil

Private School concedes fees due to inappropriate treatment of pupil

We recently represented clients against a prestigious private school.  Our client had to withdraw her son from the school as there had been problems concerning his care.  Particularly our clients’ son was admitted to hospital whilst he was at his boarding house. He was thereafter falsely accused of illegal substance abuse by the school. The school later confirmed that no such abuse had taken place and that our clients’ son’s hospital admission was due to illness.

Upon our client withdrawing her son (given the severity of the allegations against him) the school was demanding one term’s fees in lieu of notice along with additional invoices for uniform and other amenities.  Our client sought advice from us. We argued that our client should not have to pay these additional fees and upon engaging in correspondence with the school, they conceded the one term’s fees in lieu of notice of withdrawal and the additional fees as well.  Our client’s son is now in a different school and is progressing well and pursuing his chosen courses.

Match Solicitors would definitely be my first choice, when I need to work with solicitors, who are specialists in education Law.

Miss Kav, London

Match Solicitors were highly recommended to us not only for their undisputed comprehensive knowledge of the SEN legal minefield, but for their understanding of autism and other disorders and consequent compassionate work ethic. Their diligence and consummate professionalism ensured that the Local Authority were forced to take our son’s case seriously. It is almost impossible to articulate how grateful we are to Rishi and Anita for their hard work and dedication.
