The Friends’ School aims to provide a comprehensive learning experience with fees that are fully inclusive of all aspects of your child’s education.
Our fees include the provision of a Apple Macbook Air Laptop computer or Apple Ipad for every student from Year 2 through to Year 12, along with the servicing, educational software, insurance and support that these devices require.
All materials, books and stationery for primary years’ students (to Year 6) are included in our fees structure along with costs for School camp, class excursions, outdoor education experiences and most co-curricular activities. The fees for Year 6 also include the annual trip to Canberra, which is provided to enhance a curriculum unit on government.
The only compulsory additional fees for Friends’ School students are a $50 laptop bag which will be added to your fees statement.
Other additional fees may occur if a student chooses to pursue certain co-curricular activities such as private music tuition, particular sporting activities such as rowing, or for some significant materials that may be used in Design and Technology courses.
For those students who choose to study the International Baccalaureate Diploma in Years 11 and 12, there is a registration and examination fee charged by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO).
Supplementary Financial Assistance
The Friends’ School offers a range of scholarships and bursaries to assist families to meet the financial requirements of attendance at Friends’. Some scholarships and bursaries are funded from bequests and gifts to the School, while others are funded from the School’s financial reserves.
Fee Concessions are provided if more than one child within a family attends Friends’.
