There are three components to the fees structure:
1. ESSENTIAL EDUCATION ITEMS
Subject Fee – Provision of class sets of text books, reference materials, curriculum requisites and general classroom requirements are charged for each of the Domains (subjects areas). Note: some elective subjects will attract extra charges.

2. OPTIONAL EXTRAS
School Magazine , Optional Camps & Excursions
3. VOLUNTARY FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION
College Furniture & Fittings Fund – This is for future development of grounds, fittings and furniture. Note: This will only be paid by one member of the family.
