Under the provisions of the 1968 Education Act, Monaghan Collegiate School is funded by a combination of grant money through the Secondary Education Committee grant scheme (SEC Grant) and School Tuition Fees. Our Tuition Fee also includes the textbook rental fee, school journal and pupil 24 hour insurance cover.
The SEC Grant, MCS School Support Scheme and other grant information is available from the School Bursar Mrs. Siobhán O’Connor. Please note there are deadlines for applications and we recommend you contact the Office on or before the end of November of the year prior to entry to apply for a place and receive the necessary information in a timely manner.
The SEC Grant Committee has administered the Protestant Block Grant Scheme as agreed with the Department of Education since the introduction of the free education scheme in 1967. The scheme is open to necessitous Protestant pupils and grants are means-tested in accordance with strict criteria. Assistance is available with the registration process initially through the School Office and through the Support Team at the SEC.
