Grammar Schools (Charges) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2008

Notice is hereby given that the Department of Education in exercise of powers conferred on it by Article 132 of the Education Reform (Northern Ireland) Order 1989 which was substituted and Article 132A added by Article 48 of the Education and Libraries (Northern Ireland) Order 1993, has made a statutory rule entitled:

Grammar Schools (Charges) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2008.

These regulations amend the Grammar Schools (Charges) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992 and revoke the Grammar Schools (Charges) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2006.

The purpose of this rule is to allow Boards of Governors of voluntary grammar schools to charge a fee in respect of pupils enrolled in the secondary department of the school for the purpose of meeting expenditure on the provision or alteration of school premises or on the provision of associated equipment. It also increases the maximum amount which the Board of Governors may charge from £130 to £140 with effect from 1 November 2008.
