Admissions

ClassworkPlaces are at all times subject to availability.

Applications to the Junior School should be made on the Application Form, which may be downloaded below, to the Principal. A separate Application Form is required for each child. You may also write to the school and an application form for each child will be sent to you.

Completed Application Forms, accompanied by an €50 non-refundable registration fee, are dated when received and placed on the class waiting list for the year of entry. This means your child is placed on a general waiting list. It is important to apply early as priority for places, subject to the priority listing below, is based on the date of receipt by the school of your application.

An acknowledgement will be sent by the school on receipt of completed application forms and registration fee.

You will be invited to an information evening for the parents of prospective pupils during the Autumn term of the year prior to when they are due to join us. At this meeting parents are required to confirm their interest in securing a place for their daughter. The first round of formal offers is allocated after this meeting. To accept this offer and secure a place, the school must receive a written letter of acceptance from the applicant, together with a non-refundable booking deposit within two weeks of the date of the formal offer. If all vacancies are not filled, a second round of offers is issued and the same procedure will apply.

In the event that a place should occur after this date, those next in line on the waiting list will be offered this.

A child must be four years of age by 31 May of that year to enter Junior Infants.

Pending availability and subject to the child being properly registered, priority of places is given to:

  • Siblings of children attending Junior School during the proposed academic year of entry.
  • Children of permanent members of Junior School staff.

Where the number of applicants exceeds the number of available places, those children who do not receive places are placed on a waiting list. Places are allocated to children in accordance with their place on the waiting list as they become available.

The policy that will apply to any application shall be the policy that is in place at the time when an offer of a place rather than an application for a place is made.
