County-Wide Television Licence for Schools

The current county-wide Television Licence for schools is due to expire at the end of June 2024.   

View the list of schools that are currently covered by the Licence.

The Schools Accountancy Team would ask schools to check the list and contact the team only if they wish to terminate their licence and be removed from the renewal. 

If your school is not listed and you consider that you should have a TV Licence, please contact the Schools Accountancy Team immediately at [email protected] so we can update our list and ensure schools are adequately covered. Please note that schools must have a current valid licence to watch or download any programs from BBC iPlayer.

Schools that plan to convert to Academies at some point within the year will be covered by the Suffolk County Council Licence until end of June 2025. It will then be necessary to obtain a separate licence as an Academy. 

The current fee payable (valid from 1 July 2024) is £169.50 per school. 

The final date for updating the licence list is Friday 21 June 2024 – any emails received after this date will not take effect until 2025-26.
