Private school fees have risen; School in Dublin with fees up to €10000 a year

Dublin: Fees in private schools in Ireland have risen. At least 10,000 euros per year are required to educate children in the most advanced schools.

All 49 post-primary schools in the private sector have hiked their fees since September. Realizing the high cost of living, a small number of schools avoided the fee hike this year.

The fees at St. Columba’s School in Rathfarnham, Dublin, are currently the highest in the country. The fee this year is €9,632. It was €9,147 last year and €8,654 the year before that.

In some schools, the fee has been increased to 8,000 euros. Some charge fees from €4,500 to €7,000. Church of Ireland schools in rural areas charge the least (€4,000). Sligo Grammar School has the lowest fees. (3,750 euros).

Private schools attract many families because of the social networking opportunities and fee subsidies they provide. Another reason is that students from these schools are given priority admission to universities and courses such as medicine.

Strict enforcement of discipline in schools is forcing parents to send their children to the private sector.
