Application fee

A non-refundable payment of €250 is due upon submission of your application.  This is to cover the review and administration of the application.  An application is not reviewed until this is paid.  Should an application be unsuccessful, the application fee is not refunded.

For applications received up to 31 August 2022

For applications up to 31 August 2022 a deposit is required, €1,500 for Nursery and €2,500 from Reception to Year 13. The Admissions Department will send an invoice for the deposit and if the deposit is not paid by the due date the School will cancel the application without notice.

The deposit is refunded when the child leaves the School provided a term’s notice has been given and there are no outstanding invoices or when the School is not able to offer the child a place. For Nursery enrolments, if a place is offered and accepted but the preferred sessions are not available, this is not a sufficient reason for the deposit to be refunded. This similarly applies to enrolments for Years 10 and 12 where certain courses may no longer be available.

For applications received on or after 1 September 2022

When a place is offered, a non-refundable enrolment fee of €750 is due for families joining Nursery or Reception. For families joining Years 1-12, the fee is €2,000. Once this fee is paid the place is guaranteed. Families transferring from Reception to Year 1 will be invoiced an additional €1,250 with the Year 1 School Fees.

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.

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 2022-23 is €38,132 per year for full time support. This is in addition to School Fees. Please contact the Admissions Team for more details.
