Admissions Process

What else?

Basically, school fees correspond to an annual fee that can be conveniently divided into twelve monthly instalments. For a school year, payments are to be made from August of one year up to and including July of the following year. The school fees include the costs for school attendance, warm lunches and all-day care.

In the school year 2022/2023, the monthly school fee for Grades 1-10 is € 990.00 (€ 11,880.00 /year) and for Grades 11 to 12 (IBDP) € 1,400.00 (€ 16,800.00 /year). A one-time admission fee of € 800.00 is payable upon conclusion of the contract.

Furthermore, there is an annual charge for “resource fees” at the beginning of each school year as follows

Grades 1-5       –  € 100,00
Grades 6-8      –  € 150,00
Grades 9-10    –  € 200,00

Additional costs can arise in the context of After School Activities, excursions, school trips and external exams.

Yes, there are, e.g. for siblings who are also students at B.I.S. Corresponding additional agreements are issued by the Admissions Office when the contract is concluded. Low-income families can also apply for income-related school fees. The application form plus complete and reliable evidence of family income should be sent to the Management Office.
