My question is: Are schools generally willing to negotiate over fees?

That's it really smile

Speak to the Head not the Bursar - obviously, if you could easily afford the full fees then you probably wouldn't ask. Especially worth it if there are spaces in the Year Group and you want to join from another school.

Most schools will return your money if you leave. It is vital they have this as part of the agreement or people would not pay in advance. People move house, circumstances change, the school turns out not to suit.....people need confidence they can get their money back.
Some of these fees in adance schemes allow you to start paying in long before your child even joins the school. They don't guarantee a place and you are not obliged to go there. They are effectively a tax free savings scheme. People can get out at any point. You simply lose the gains that the system would have given you.
