Tuition Fees

Our School Fees are broken down by Key Stages 1 to 5 (Year Groups 1-13) and are made up of an Enrolment Fee, Tuition Fees and a Capital Fee.  To work out what Key Stage or Year Group your child is in, please refer to the Age and Year Group comparison information to see how The British School structure compares with other international school systems.

Fee and payment structure for Key Stages 1-5 (Year Groups 1-13):

  • Tuition fees are invoiced annually* and, for returning students, are due before the start of the school year in September.
  • New students starting the BSN in September will be invoiced within the first month of starting school.
  • For students joining during the course of the academic year, tuition fees are calculated in full term units (1/3 of annual fee) and invoiced accordingly.
  • Students leaving during the course of the year will be reimbursed accordingly.
* In exceptional cases, where parents' circumstances prevent them paying fees as one annual payment (e.g. they carry the main burden of the payment of school fees and receive no assistance 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.

Enrolment Fee

A single one off payment of € 2,000 per student. Parents with children starting in Foundation 1 or 2 will be charged this fee only once their child reaches Year 1.

Capital Fee

The Capital Fee is a charge that ensures the school’s quality over the longer term and is applied to the development of the school’s infrastructure and facilities. This is equivalent to a contribution of a 4% surcharge on the Tuition Fees. The Capital Fee is charged once a child reaches Year 1.
