Fee and Payment Structure

  • Fees are invoiced annually* and, for returning students, are due in August before the start of the school year in September.
  • The Annual Fees include compulsory (day) trips and residentials (Key Stage 2, 3, 4 and 5) and exams (Key Stage 4 and 5, and CNaVT exam).
  • New students starting at the BSN in September will be invoiced within the first month of starting school.
  • For students joining during the course of the academic year, fees are calculated in half-term units and invoiced accordingly.
  • Students leaving during the course of the year will be reimbursed on a termly basis if notice is given timely.


All compulsory (day) trips and residentials are also included in the Annual Fees. Compulsory trips are those which all students of the year group are expected to go on (as they form part of the curriculum). This includes up to ten days per year, including residentials, day trips and in-school activity days. Transport (on coaches) for these trips is also included.

Exam Fees

All GCSE, A level, BTEC, IB and CNaVT exam entry costs are included in the Annual Fees.

* In exceptional cases, where parents' circumstances prevent them from paying fees as one annual payment (e.g. they carry the entire burden of the Fees and receive no assistance at all from an employer), parents can contact the Finance Department to apply for an alternative staged payment option. The school is not able to offer discounts on fees.

Additional Fees

  • Enrolment Fee: A single, one-off payment of €2,000 per student is required upon enrolment. Please note, where a child has been with us for the whole of Foundation 2, there is no enrolment fee when they join Year 1.
  • Capital Fee: A Capital Fee will be charged annually once your child reaches Year 1. This is equivalent to a contribution of a 7% surcharge on the School Fees to ensure the school’s quality over the longer term and is applied to the development of the school’s infrastructure and facilities.
  • Uniform Costs: Families should expect to pay around €250 for the initial cost of a full school uniform (basic set). If your child takes part in a sport or CCA, an additional kit may be needed. Uniforms (including sports kits) can also be bought second-hand from the Family Association’s second-hand uniform sales. 
Extra Costs

Below are the details of extra costs, which may be incurred whilst your child is at the BSN.

The information below provides a general overview of these costs to allow you to forecast potential expenditures.

Not all of these costs will apply to each family.

Transport Fees 

The cost for BSN school transport varies according to the type of bus service that your child will be using (e.g. door to door minibus, for Junior and Senior students) or coach service (Senior only) and distance from the school. The minimum registration is for one term. Fees paid cover the costs of transportation (the BSN makes no profit).  

Food and Drink (Senior School)

A small amount for daily spend at the school cafe. 

Learning Support Assistant (LSA)

  • The fees for Learning Support Assistance are € 46,440 per student.
