School Costs

Antrim Grammar School endeavours to provide an enriching pupil experience. In order to do so, there are a limited number of additional costs associated with this which are outlined below. 

All charges are payable through ParentMail.

School Fund

We thank you in advance for supporting the school with your contribution. The School Fund system is vital for the school as it allows us to finance a programme of enrichment for all pupils. The importance of parental contribution to this fund makes a difference in the ability of the school to continue to offer such a wide range of extra-curricular and enrichment options. The school receives funding from the Department of Education but this funding is required for other front line services. We are aware of financial constraints that many families face; however the voluntary contribution per pupil equates to around 35 pence per school day and helps us to meet the needs of all our pupils. The main payment method is card via ParentMail but other payment methods are available, including cash or cheque. You will receive notice of the charges at the start of each school year with information about payment options.

The charges for 2018/19 per family are:
1 pupil £65
2 pupils £95
3 pupils £125

School Uniform

The full school uniform including P.E. / Games Kit is available from Wallace's in Antrim.
