Partner Schools

We have developed strong working relationships with the principals and management teams in a range of schools across Ireland.We recognise that every child is unique and we have developed the range of schools we offer to reflect this, so we can provide a school for all requirements. Over the coming pages you’ll find profiles for just some of the schools we work with. If you can’t find something you are looking for or have a specific school in mind, please contact us.

Types of School in Ireland

State Schools (EU students only)

State Schools in Ireland are funded by the Irish government. Some older schools were originally founded by the religious orders, but all new schools are founded by the government and are usually coeducational or mixed gender. Only students from the EU can apply to State School.

Private Schools (EU & non EU students)

Private schools can welcome from all over the world, including non- EU countries. The majority were founded by religious orders in either the Catholic or Protestant faiths. Our partner private schools are a mixture of mixed gender and single gender schools, along with boarding or day schools staying with a host family. Although these schools receive some funding from the Irish government, they also charge fees.

Mixed (CO-ED) & Single Gender Schools

Although a growing number of Irish parents are choosing mixed schools as a truer reflection of society, single gender schools still perform better in terms of the number of students progressing to university. Out of the top 40 schools in Ireland, just 20% are mixed. Of-course this does not mean that single gender schools provide a better education as a rule, but it’s worth remembering when choosing a school. Often international students can be cautious about single gender schools as they aren’t familiar with them, but in Ireland they are very common and they offer a fantastic option for this type of programme.
