Thank you for the question. I agree this is not a family court matter. It would fall. under contact law. In which case the first thing you require to do is look or obtain a copy of any agreement you have in relation to the school fees, bursary and school attendance etc. You will want to look through these to see if there is any such provision to state that they can legally enforce the fees they are seeking. If you find this but do not quite understand, which is common, then we could look at reviewing it for you. However, if there is one it should determine whether they can legally enforce tis or not. However, if there is not such contactual provision then it may be up to a judge to determine whether the payment requested by them is legally enforceable. Once you have looked at the contact, if you feel they may have a right to claim this then It would be worth looking at instructing a solicitor at this point to see if any resolution can be made in the matter or if the case could be successful defended.
