The British Junior Academy of Brussels is a registered Charity and operational costs are supported solely by the income from fees.
Tuition fees are set annually as part of the budget process. Aware that parents have long term budgetary planning for School Fees, BJAB wishes to advise parents that annual increases have been in the order of 2%-8% in recent years. BJAB school fees remain exceptionally competitive in relation to the other school fees in Brussels.

Where companies are paying, tuition fees are payable for the whole school year. For parents paying privately, payments can be made in three instalments as indicated in the table above. Monthly payments can only be arranged by request at the discretion of the Headteacher. No student will be admitted or allowed to remain unless arrangements for the payment of fees are made. Pupils entering mid-way through a school year will receive a pro-rata invoice before entry; payment is required within 2 weeks.
Parents are responsible for the payment of total sums due, regardless of any subsidies provided by their employer.
At BJAB, we believe that an excellent education should be accessible to all and we recognise that some of our parents fund their children’s education privately. Mr. Retter, Headteacher, is happy to discuss discretionary financial assistance on school fees upon admission.
