Financial Information:

  • Details of our online payment system can be found on our website homepage (top right button “Pay Online”) or here. When your details of our new students are uploaded we will text you to remind you to check our online payment system to ensure that all outstanding balances are paid. Please note that we do not use VSware for school payments.
    • The €50 admin covers the cost of student 24-hour insurance and operating costs of the school communication system. It contributes to other school costs including locker rental, printing, photocopying, phone calls and access to IT educational software for all students. We ask all parents to pay this cost for each student. Padlocks for lockers will be made available for all students when they start school.
    • A voluntary student contribution of €90 helps us to cover the costs of our active extra-curricular programme, end of year awards and other ongoing costs. Sibling discounts can be requested through the front office (2 siblings – pay €90+€45; 3 or more siblings pay €90+€45+€30+€0).

School timetable: Your child’s timetable will be available when they arrive for induction and you can also view it on your parent VSware app when term starts.

Uniform: Full uniform policy available on our website here – please read carefully; Students in all years do PE and require a full school PE uniform. Students wear their PE uniform for the day when PE is on the timetable. Our uniform supplier is Schoolwear House and the uniform flyer and pricelist is here. Contact details and sizing advice are available on their website

Induction Day 1 and 2: Students should arrive in full uniform on the date and time specified on the calendar and require only a copy, a pencil case and a small snack on their induction days. A locker will be allocated to students and books can be brought in gradually over the first week.
