Nursery

The Morrison's Academy Nursery operates from 08.45 until 15.15 Monday - Friday during term time but offers a variety of options within these times.

Morning Nursery places may be eligible for grant assistance through a partnership arrangement with Perth & Kinross Council. The value of the grant is paid directly to the Nursery and is deducted from the fees shown below. No grant funding is available for afternoon sessions.

Qualification for Perth & Kinross (PKC) grant funding depends upon your child's date of birth and entry stage.  Subject to eligibility, the following criteria apply at Morrison's Academy:

  • Ante pre-school: children must attend a minimum of 3 morning sessions per week but further grant funding is available for up to 5 morning sessions per week.
  • Pre-school: children must attend a minimum of 3 morning sessions per week; preference will be given to those who attend 5 morning sessions per week.

Monthly Direct Debit 

There are three terms in an academic session. This scheme permits regular monthly payments to be made by Direct Debit from a United Kingdom bank account with a maximum of 4 monthly payments being made in respect of each termly invoice with each payment being made, as specified in the following schedule, in advance of the educational services being provided:

Termly Payment

Fees being paid on a termly basis will become due on the first day of each term. No administration fee is applied to termly payments.

Annual Payment

A discount of 2.5% off the standard annual fee (Nursery- S6) is currently offered for payment of the full annual fee provided payment is made by the first day of the Session.  For Nursery fees this discount shall apply to the net fee payable after deduction of the PKC grant.  No administration fee is applied to annual payments.

Family Discount

From session 2011-12, where 3 or more children are enrolled co-terminously, families may apply for the following means-tested sibling discounts:

  • 3rd Child at School - Up to 25% discount
  • 4th and subsequent children - Up to 50% discount

These discounts are applicable to all years from P1 to S6 but exclude Nursery.  Families with children who were enrolled prior to the end of session 2009-10 shall remain entitled to the full discounts, where appropriate, without the need for means-testing.

Additional costs

Individual Music Tuition

The Music Department offers an enviable level of curricular and extra-curricular provision. There is a thriving instrumental tuition scheme and a busy programme of extra-curricular rehearsals and performances, with strong links to the local community.  Nearly half the school's pupils take instrumental lessons from a team of ten visiting instructors.  These optional private lessons are subject to a small additional charge which is paid directly to the tutor.  Fees are currently in the range £14.00- £14.50 per weekly half-hour lesson

Extra-curricular Activities

The School shares parents' ambition to bring out the best in their children and we pride ourselves in developing the whole child, pursuing not only academic excellence but also instilling a desire to develop personal interests through participation in the extra-curricular life of the school.  In pursuit of this we offer a range of extra-curricular clubs and societies which take advantage of the academic, sporting and cultural facilities on campus whilst the School's location in Crieff offers wide-ranging scope to enjoy the surrounding Perthshire hills and adventure training opportunities throughout Scotland. In some cases, these activities will be subject to a participation fee to cover essential costs.

Travel to School

Whilst there are good local bus services, the School also operates a variety of private contract buses and minibuses for pupils travelling into Crieff from surrounding towns and cities.  Costs vary in relation to the length of the journey and further details can be provided on request. 

Foreign Visits and Exchanges

An important element of a Morrison's education is that it is delivered with an awareness of the pupil's place in a global context.  In recent years foreign travel, which is supportive of this philosophy, has been undertaken by the Modern Languages, Music and Business Studies Departments.  The cost of these visits and exchanges is borne by those who travel.  Participation, whilst encouraged, is not compulsory.

Additionally, the Physical Education Department organises regular Hockey and Rugby tours where our best players have the opportunity to test their skills, representing the School against international opposition. Such tours are often supported, to some degree, through fundraising activities.  Annual skiing holidays to European resorts, supervised by School staff, are also offered to pupils who wish to participate with the cost of these trips, again, being funded only by those who travel.
