School Fund is a contribution to school finances made by parents to cover activities and resources which are not financed by the Department of Education. School fund is used to make up this shortfall and is used for a range of purposes which include:

  • accident insurance for pupils taking part in games and other school activities, in case they suffer from serious injury
  • support for sports teams and individuals
  • hire of facilities and transport
  • subsidies for field courses (for pupils) in connection with GCSE/GCE examinations
  • subsidies to School Societies
