Alexandra College

Admissions Process

We are very proud of Alexandra College and we’re always delighted to talk to parents and girls about what we have to offer across the academic, creative, music and sporting aspects of College life.

Our mission and ethos are strongly connected with the Church of Ireland, we have a diverse and inclusive student body, which reflects Irish society and welcomes equally, girls of every faith and those of no religious affiliation.

A pupil’s name may be entered for the College at any time, although early application is advised. You can now apply to Alexandra College online.

At this stage the pupil’s name is entered on the list, however, she is not guaranteed for entry until the acceptance deposit has been requested and received (usually two years prior to entry date). This deposit is not an additional charge but will be refunded after the pupil has left the College.

Choosing the right school for your daughter is an important decision and the Principal of Alexandra College and the Head of the Junior School are always pleased to see prospective parents and answer their questions. Please contact the College in advance for an appointment.

Class Ages

Below is a table showing what class your daughter should be in based on her age.

We are very proud of what we have at Alexandra College and we hope you will be impressed by our many strengths. We would be delighted to welcome you to our campus so you can experience our atmosphere of vitality and enthusiasm at first hand. If this is not a practical option for you in the short term, we can, of course, arrange a telephone call with our College Principal, Barbara Ennis, at a time that is convenient for you.


Each year Alexandra College offers two full scholarships available to entrants at 1st year secondary level.

These are awarded on the basis of an open examination held at the end of November in the year before entry. The scholarship covers tuition fees from 1st to 6th Year. Details of the 2020 Scholarship will be announced later on in the year.


Open Day

This year our annual open day will take place on Saturday 16th November from 10am until 12pm. There is no need to register, just come along on the day!
