Cyber-crime – please be vigilant
Parents are asked to be vigilant when reading emails relating to the payment of school fees and any other items to the Foundation.
We continue to receive reports regarding spam emails being sent to parents of independent schools asking them to pay future fees to a ‘new’ school bank account.
Please be advised there has been no change to the bank details of either Princethorpe College, Crackley Hall or Crescent and there is no intention to make any changes in the foreseeable future. Any electronic notification that appears to be from any of the Foundation schools changing these details may be fraudulent.
Our bank details are available on the Parent Bills, the Online Payment Portal and for Princethorpe in the Princethorpe College Information Booklet 2019 – 2020, and only those details should be used.
Parents are asked to be vigilant in respect of any communications purporting to be from the Foundation requesting money that do not match our normal procedures.
- invoices are only available through the on-line parent fee portal;
- our bank account details will NOT change during the academic year 2019-20;
- if you receive an email purporting to amend our bank details, do not make any payment and please contact us by telephone immediately to clarify;
- we do not email details of unsolicited discounts for payment of funds.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or my colleagues in the Bursary if you are have any doubts about the correct details or indeed if anything appears suspicious.
Please contact the Bursary if you have concerns about any communication you receive and in particular if you receive any request for payment of funds outside our normal routines.
Please note we do not accept payment in cash for the fee bill.
