Fees are invoiced annually in May for the following school year. For students joining during the course of the school year, invoices are issued before enrolment date. Invoices are payable within 30 days of invoice date, or prior to the student's start date. Regardless of any arrangement made between parent and employer concerning payment of school fees, the parent is always responsible for the payment of school fees for their child(ren). Please see the Terms & Conditions below for further information.
Adjustments in school fees for incomplete years

For students who have paid the full tuition and bus fee and who leave before the last day of January, 25% of the tuition and bus fee will be reimbursed by the School. If a student leaves after the last day of January, there is no reimbursement of any fees paid.

Consolidated invoice for other fees* and SEPA regulations
*except application, tuition and bus fees
The Single European Payments Area (SEPA) regulation has been implemented. The SEPA regulation is the harmonisation between payments processes. Practically, this means that the direct debit will be managed by the International School of Brussels and no longer by your bank.
For all new direct debits, the SEPA mandate is the only valid form. This SEPA mandate will only be issued by our Admission or our Finance department because the SEPA mandate must have a unique reference number. The unique reference number will be mentioned on your consolidated invoice.
You will be invoiced five times (end of October, December, February, April, June) for all costs except application, tuition and bus fees. The consolidated invoice will be submitted for payment five working days following the invoice date.
For further information regarding the SEPA implementation please visit www.sepabelgium.be or contact Véronique Collard (+32 (0)2 661 42 26) or Dorcyna Rugamba (+32 (0)2 661 42 28) in the finance office.
The ISB bus service is available for children as from Kindergarten, although Pre-Kindergarten children are allowed on the bus when they are accompanied by older siblings. There is no reimbursement of bus fees due to an inability to use the service for whatever reason. For families who would otherwise find it difficult to pay the annual bus fee, ISB offers a payment plan to spread the cost of the bus service across each school year. Please contact the Finance Office for more information.
Bus fees for the school year are as follows:
|Return trip||1,940 Euro|
|One way only||1,460 Euro|
Other potential costs
Some services are optional and extra costs may occur during the school year. These costs include, but are not limited to, the following:
The cafeteria price list and the details of student’s food purchases are available to current parents on the ISB Community Portal. A typical lunch costs around €5. The daily limit on the lunch card is €10 for the Early Childhood Centre and Elementary School and €20 for Middle Schools and High School.
Lunch cards are distributed to the students by the divisional offices at the start of the school year. However, the lunch card will only be valid when the SEPA form has been duly signed and returned to the Finance Office.
Cafeteria purchases will be invoiced five times (end of October, December, February, April and June) through the Consolidated Invoice. The consolidated invoice will be submitted for payment five working days following the invoice date.
Our wide range of clubs, groups and activities going on both during and after school offers students the chance to pursue their interests as well as extend their knowledge of core curricular themes.
Everything that is part of our co-curricular programme, ISB Plus, Supervision, or ISB Summer, is billed separately.
If your child becomes part of an ISB athletics team, you will be billed separately per season, per sport.
The cost depends on the level and where the post-season tournament is taking place. For JV and Varsity teams there is a player fee of €265. Parents also pay the travel costs to any ISST or SCIS tournaments at the end of the season. These costs are billed by ISB Accounts at the end of the season. For U14 Teams the player fee is €165 along with any post-season travel costs.
