Split payments

Fees will only be invoiced annually, however where parents are paying fees themselves, it is possible to pay in 3 equal instalments as follows:

  • Payment Term 1 (Autumn Term) due 3 July 2023 
  • Payment Term 2 (Spring Term) due 9 October 2023 
  • Payment Term 3 (Summer Term) due 5 February 2024 

Where parent circumstances prevent school fees being paid annually or termly, parents can contact the Bursar directly to request an alternative payment arrangement.

Late payment protocol

If school fees and other charges fall into arrears, the school reserves the right to send the entire amount due to the school’s debt collections agency and to refuse admittance to the school. All costs of the debt collection agency will be for the parent.

This late payment protocol applies similarly to the invoicing of extras (for school lunches and trips).

In the situation where there is an outstanding debt, any payment made will always be paid towards the oldest outstanding amount that is due/payable.

No school records or reports will be issued until all fees and other charges have been satisfactorily settled. The due date of invoices will not change if a request for a change in the invoice is made.

Other additional costs
School Trips

All school trips that are a compulsory part of the curriculum are included in the school fees.

Extras not included in the School Fees

Optional trips are not covered by the School Fees and will be invoiced separately. Pupils will not be allowed to attend the trip unless payment in full has been made before the trip takes place.

The fees for school lunches are not included in the school fees and will be invoiced separately on a non-refundable basis. School lunches are provided by Markies Catering. To find out more about their provisions, prices and ordering system, log in to Firefly.

School text books and examination fees

Text books and exercise book are provided by the School free of charge, unless they are damaged or lost. All external examination fees for qualifications from the UK, such as GCSE/IGCSE and AS/A level are also paid for within the School Fees. Any re-take examinations will be invoiced separately.

Laptop in the Senior School
Years 7-9 are required to have a Windows laptop. We recommend the Dell – Latitude 3120. Our partner The Rent Company offer laptops for rent or sale. Purchasing through them means your child is always assured of using the correct device and a working laptop in the classroom. For more information you visit the webshop.

Years 10 to 13 may bring any device. The minimum requirement is a full sized keyboard and at least an 11″ screen.

Learning Support

For children with additional learning support needs requiring a Learning Support Assistant, the fee for 2023-24 is €40,420 per year for full time support. This is in addition to School Fees. Please contact the Admissions Team for more details.
