Tuition Fees

ISB is a not-for-profit school. Our operating costs depend entirely on tuition fees. The Board of the International School of Bremen reviews and sets the tuition fees for each upcoming school year. Fees for the following years may be adjusted in accordance with recommendations from the Board of Trustees and as approved annually. The ‘School Fees 2018-2019’ document contains the fee breakdown for the school year.

Beginning in Grade 1, school fees are tax-deductible in Germany up to € 5000 per child per year. Please consult a tax advisor regarding applicability in individual cases.

Additional Fees

Additional fees may accrue according to the age and activities of each child. They may include:

Extra-curricular Activities: Some extra-curricular activities may incur a small fee where an outside provider is used.

Music Enrichment Programme: Will incur extra charges, highlighted on the MEP page.

Day Trips: May incur a small charge to cover minor expenses.

Overnight Trips: Overnight trips will incur charges to cover accommodation, travel, food and extras on the trip. The residential trip schedule will be reviewed annually and published for each Grade in September to help Parents budget for these visits.

Lunch Programme: School lunches are not included in the fees.

Financial Assistance

ISB has a Scholarship/Bursary Programme to support families unable to pay full school fees.

ISB is an independent, self-supporting educational institution registered in Germany as a non-profit association and recognised in the state of Bremen as an “anerkannte Ersatzschule”. The Director, who will assess all scholarship applications, and is responsible for establishing policies for the operation of the School, has created a programme for families who can demonstrate financial need after completing a scholarship application form.
