Enrolment Fee: The school requires a 3,000€ enrolment fee to be paid to confirm the placement of any child (1 fee per family). The enrolment fee is non-refundable.

EAL Charge: A termly 300€ charge will be applied to all students who the school deems to require additional English support. This will continue each term until the school feels the student no longer needs the EAL support.

Recap Days (Optional): 300€ per term. During each of the half term holidays (3/year), we offer three extra recap days. Recap stands for Reinforcing Curriculum and Progression. These extra tuition days allow for either a review of any areas of the curriculum a student might require extra support in or additional intensive sessions to propel them to a higher level. Combined with our normal school calendar, these ‘top-up’ sessions can greatly boost a child’s academic development.

School Lunches: Please enquire at the school for up to date costs.

Bus Service: Cost varies, please enquire at the school for availability in your area.

School Uniform:  All students are required to wear the uniform to school. There is also a separate P.E. kit. All uniform sets and individual items can be purchased from the school shop.
