In cases where notice is not given, the appropriate sum in lieu of notice will become due and owing to the School as a debt on the first day of the term which would have been the final term of provision if a term’s notice had been given.
  5. The Headmaster may, at his discretion, require you to remove your child from the School if he considers that your child’s attendance, progress or behaviour is seriously unsatisfactory and in the reasonable opinion of the Headmaster, the removal is in the School’s best interests or those of your child or other children.
