School fees

Fees and payment arrangements for 2021-22

Under normal circumstances, a full term’s fees would be charged for any part of the term attended. However, we recognise that current restrictions mean that families may not be able to start School when they originally planned to.  Therefore, until further notice, fees will be charged from the beginning of the half term in which a child joins.

Late payment protocol

If after three reminders, 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 instance school bus, lunch and trip).

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 the school bus and lunch 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.

We are trialling a new system for the school bus service. The new service will have three routes with specified pick-up points and is available to pupils of all ages. It will take place from Monday 26 April to 16 July 2021 and is bookable per half-term period. For more details and to complete the application form, please visit our school bus page.

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
All new pupils and those in Year 7 will need to have a Windows laptop. The device we recommend is the Latitude 3120 Laptop and 2-in-1 for Education. Years 8 and 9 can continue to use Chromebooks but it is also possible to have a Windows laptop.

We have partnered with The Rent Company to offer a rental or purchase package, on a choice of three different laptop models, for 36, 48 or 60 months, including the hardware, cover, school installation, full service package and damage/theft insurance. Costs start from €10.55 rental per month or €507.50 to purchase. You can see more details in the webshop.

In Year 10 and above, pupils may bring any device to school with the minimum requirement is that it has a full sized keyboard.

Learning Support

For children with additional learning support needs requiring a Learning Support Assistant, the fee for 2021-22 is €36,843 per year for full time support. This is in addition to School Fees. Please contact the Admissions Team for more details.
