IB school in Ireland, St Andrew's college

The only IB school near Dublin, St Andrew's college located in South Dublin.

What is notable about the school St Gerard's

St Gerard's - day private school, which is located in the resort town of Bray, south of Dublin, just a few miles from the district. School is one of the most elite in Ireland, however, there is no boarding - only accommodation in host families. But the price of school in the area of Dublin around 20.000 euros per year – very attractive to the clients. So I included this school in the list of visits during my recent stay in Ireland this fall.First of all, I would like to note the location of the school. Bray is a very…

THE UNIQUENESS OF THE COUNTRY AND MY IMPRESSIONIreland is called the emerald country for the dazzling greens of her landscapes.

AUTUMN TOUR OF THE IRISH SCHOOLSIt is September and that means it's time to hit the road.Tomorrow I am leaving for Ireland again to visit schools around Dublin. Irish schools are little known to our families. This is due to the fact, that are not many Irish schools, which allowed accepting students from outside the EU, and they are reluctant to new cooperation. Usually, it is very difficult to establish cooperation with them for the agency outside the EU countries. You might find very little information in Russian about Irish schools. Since there is little information, people…

Sutton Park is one of the few schools where I would recommend international students to live with a host family rather than residency. Since the school is located in the exclusive residential area of ​​Saton Park (a small isthmus that separates mainland Dublin from the Howes Peninsula), the few international students of the school have an amazing opportunity to live in prestigious houses located on the seashore, in families that cooperate with this particular school.(I wrote this article a couple of years ago. Since the fall of 2016, the school has closed the residence and all foreign…

The importance of religion in Irish schools

A visit to Kings Hospital school convinced me once again that Irish schools are not inferior to British ones either in terms of education and results, or in terms of school territory and infrastructure, or in the mood and feeling of joy from the work done by the students themselves.Kings Hospital is owned by the Church of Ireland. In fact, this means that the church maintains the school and appoints a board of directors to manage the school. In addition, the Irish are very keen on their traditions and respect for religion. In Ireland,…
