School Finance

We appreciate every family’s financial contribution to the cost of schooling their child with proceeds enriching and improving the curriculum and opportunities for our students.

All funds received from families are directed straight back into the classroom for immediate benefit of students.

Please read Contributions and Charges Explained for more information on the structure of our costs and their purposes.

In December each year all families are emailed their child’s subject selection and associated costs as well as Anticipated Additional Costs and Personal Items List (Booklist) for the following year.  For example, this year, we will email families information regarding their child’s 2023 subject costs and Booklist requirements.

We understand that the end of the year can be an expensive time of year, and equally when families are preparing children for the new school year therefore we do not seek payment until mid Term 1 each year.  From mid Term 1 and during the school year, statement reminders will be emailed regularly requesting payment of the cost of schooling your child. Please read Cost of Subjects and Payment Options for further information regarding the cost of subjects and our payment options, including the very popular Set and Forget payment plan.

Many families have moved onto Set and Forget payment plans to help with this cost and spread it across the years of your child’s high school career, thus, reducing potential financial pain.
