    What next, staff are a luxury, second homes in the Dordogne are a luxury, owning a yacht is a luxury?

    It is a luxury because I'll bet the state schools are more than fine and they just aren't good enough for Tarquin and Allegra.

    We've been given a 15% discount. Given that they were meant to be sitting A Levels and were about to be sent home for "Study Leave" anyway, it's a bit of an unexpected bonus.

    are they still doing schooling?
    Most state schools are doing remote lessons with Teams.
    I reckon you'd get a discount on the boarding fees though.

    If cash strapped state schools can provide remote learning resources surely a private school can...

    We have taken the approach that we don't want them to be out of pocket but they would be expected to make a small contribution. a 20-30% reduction would be the minimum that should be offered given there won't be much of a service.

    Precisely. It has to be said that the cash balance for the schools is well into 7 figures.....
