TERMS & PAYMENT
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.
PAYING BY INSTALMENTS
For families who would otherwise find it difficult to pay tuition fees, ISB offers a payment plan to spread the cost of tuition across each school year.
How does the scheme work?
The system is very simple and designed to support families who pay personally for the tuition of their children.
NOTE: This scheme is not open to companies who contribute to the cost of ISB tuition.
There is typically an annual administrative cost of €200 per family. The cost of tuition at ISB*, plus 1% rate of interest above the current European Central Bank rate, is then divided up into a maximum of 10 monthly instalments (July – April).
*Only applies to tuition fees and does not include bus fees or other related costs.
How do I apply?
The payment via instalments scheme requires no disclosure of income and assets. Simply contact the ISB Finance Office who will be more than happy to set up this facility for you. Please contact us for further information and this payment facility.
CONSOLIDATED INVOICE FOR OTHER FEES* AND SEPA REGULATIONS
Consolidated invoice for other fees*
*except application, tuition and long term (more than one month) bus service fees.
You will receive the consolidated invoices, including items such as lunch, athletic fees, music, ISB Plus (if applicable), at the beginning of each month.
You can pay the ISB consolidated Invoice by bank transfer or direct debit (SEPA mandate).
The SEPA Mandate, once signed, allows ISB to collect the payment directly from your bank account within 5 working days following the invoice date.
This SEPA mandate will only be issued by our Finance department. The SEPA mandate has a unique reference number. This number will be mentioned on your consolidated invoice.
For all new direct debits, the SEPA mandate is the only valid form. This form must be completed in full and returned by e-mail to the Finance department.
If you do not want this option, please send an e-mail to our Finance department stating that fact.
If you choose to pay by bank transfer, the total invoice is due immediately.
For further information regarding the SEPA implementation please visit www.sepabelgium.be or contact our 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||2,605 Euro|
|One way only||1,960 Euro|
For fees for an occasional use of the bus (daily or weekly) please contact the Bus Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. To read more about our bus service click here.
OTHER POTENTIAL COSTS
Some services are optional and extra costs may occur during the school year. These costs will be billed at the beginning of each month through the consolidated Invoice. These costs include, but are not limited to, the following:
The cafeteria price list, the daily limit on the lunch card and the details of student’s food purchases are available to current parents on the ISB Community Portal.
Lunch cards are distributed to the students by the general offices at the start of the school year. A fee of €10 will be billed if the lunch card is lost.
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.
Extra Curricular includes everything that is part of our co-curricular programme, ISB Plus, Supervision, or ISB Summer.
Rental of Musical Instruments
International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme
Any student partaking in the IB programme will be billed for all corresponding costs (exam & administration fees). Any other external examination expense incurred by ISB at the request of a student .
Student Support Services
We cater to a wide range of learning needs from mild to intensive learning and developmental disabilities, and manage numbers carefully to ensure that students receive a highest level of support and care.
If your child becomes part of an ISB athletics team, you will be billed 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 €270. Parents also pay the travel costs to any ISST or SCIS tournaments. These costs are billed during the season. For U14 Teams the player fee is €170 along with any post-season travel costs.
Financial Aid Programme
As an international school, ISB exists to serve the educational needs of families whose employment brings them to Brussels and who wish their children to have an English-language education.
The Financial Aid Programme is primarily designed to support existing families who experience a change of personal circumstances and financial hardship during their time at ISB. If you have further questions about financial aid please contact us at email@example.com.

Eligible applications are then reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee composed of the School Director (chair), the Director of Advancement, the Director of Finance & Operations and the Finance Manager. In reaching their decision they look closely at the family's circumstances in order to ensure that they meet the criteria.
Payments in kind cannot be exchanged for financial aid under this programme. Payment in installments is possible but failure to maintain the payment schedule may result in the loss of financial aid.
