Fees

We keep fees as low as possible, while ensuring very high teacher student ratios.

Tuition Fees

Peregrine has a strong philosophical commitment to keeping the school accessible to all families. We therefore offer three levels of tuition fee. The full fee is discounted by 25% at the first Low Income Tier and by 50% at the second

Low Income Tier. There are further sibling discounts, which have the effect of removing tuition fees for all but the first child, for families who qualify for the Low Income Discounts.

Tier 1

Eligibility for this discount is possession of a Low Income Health Care Card

Tier 2

Eligibility for this discount is approval for the Tasmanian Education Department Student Assistance Scheme. These discounts are made possible by all families participating in fundraising, and through additional funding from the Commonwealth Government on the basis of average family income in the school community.

Additional Tuition Fee Discounts

Further discounts on tuition fees are available by application, in return for work at the school, one day per week. Limited numbers of these discounts are available, and are only for tuition for one child in a family. Additional Fee Support is reviewed by the Management Committee at the end of each year, to ensure discounts are offered appropriately.

We can’t value only what is easy to measure; measurable outcomes may be the least important results of learning.
