  • Small Group Open Events October 2021

    Due to Devon being in a Covid Enhanced Response Area until 4th October, we have taken the difficult decision to change the way we conduct our open events by replacing the College Open Evening on Tuesday 21st September with a wide range of smaller and more personal events. We are very keen to meet prospective parents/carers and pupils and are delighted to be able to offer a ‘package’ of Covid-safe opportunities to help inform your choice of secondary school for September 2022.
    Small group tours – wide range of dates available
    We are offering small group tours with our Executive Headteacher Michael Johnson, Deputy Executive Headteacher Neil Payne and SENDCO Laura Mackie. After school for those who may not be able to visit in working hours and morning tours for those who wish to visit during a normal school day.  Being able to see the school ‘in action’ provides an excellent window into what we offer here at Chulmleigh College, and with the tours being led by our Senior Leadership Team in a small group environment, you will have ample opportunities to ask any questions you may have. 
    We are offering a wide range of dates for these tours, please click on the links below to book.
    After school tours: Morning tours:
    Year 6 Taster Morning Saturday 16th October 9am-12pm We are delighted to be able to offer prospective pupils the chance to attend a Taster Morning at the College, where they will experience a range of lessons and activities.


Payment Policy - Chulmleigh

Funded Children

Funded children that are claiming additional hours over their Early Years Entitlement (15 or 30hrs) will be charged at £4.50 per hour. You will receive an invoice at the beginning of each term broken down into monthly payments, which will reflect how many additional hours your child has booked over the whole term.  This will be calculated using the Early Years Entitlement funding calculator.

Non Funded Children

Non-funded children will be invoiced at the beginning of each month, and charged at £4.50 per hour. 

CAT Club

Children that use the CAT Club before and after school will be invoiced at the end of each month and charged £4.50 per hour.  Because of different starting times in the mornings, arriving earlier than your booked time will result in you being charged in 15 minute slots.  Arriving late for pick up will result in you being charged to the next 30mins, this is in conjunction with the Chulmleigh Out of School Club. There is a late collection fee of £15.00 charged for pick up after 6pm.  Please note that if your child does not attend a pre-booked session you will still be charged.

School Dinners

Money for school dinners is paid straight to Chulmleigh Academy Trust and is totally separate from CAT Preschools Limited.  If your child orders a school dinner, then money should be put in an envelope with your child’s name and date on. If paying by cheque, please make your cheques payable to CHULMLEIGH ACADEMY TRUST.
Non-payment of school dinners will result in your child not being able to access this facility until any outstanding payments have been cleared.


If fees remain unpaid, you will receive a reminder.
If, after receipt of a reminder, fees still remain unpaid then we will be unable to offer any more additional hours until payment is made.

We do not refund fees when children are absent through sickness, or other.
Long term illnesses or holidays is of course a different matter, and is negotiable.  

Please make cheques payable to CAT Preschools Ltd, or if paying by bank transfer:
