Application and Admissions Process

Our Application Process

Many sections of The Education (Admission to Schools) Act 2018 have recently come into force and we are currently reviewing our Enrolment Policies in consultation with our school community. 

 

Preschool and Junior School 

You may apply at any time for a place in our Preschool or our Junior School. Boarding places are available from 10 years of age. On receipt of a completed application form, we will enter your daughter’s name on a waiting list for the College. We recommend that you apply as early as possible. Available places will be allocated in accordance with the selection criteria set out in our Junior School Enrolment Policy. Offers are made one year before the desired entry date. Any Junior School offer is conditional on payment of a deposit in full before the date set out in your offer letter. Please see our Fee Terms and Conditions for more information.

Senior School other than First Year

We are building our beautiful new Residence House at the heart of our Campus in Milltown. We are delighted to have additional boarding places available for September 2021 and 2022. From time to time a small number of day places becomes available in years other than first year. Please contact Admissions at admissions@alexandracollege.ie to check availability.

Senior School First Year Places

If before 1 February 2020, you were offered and accepted a place in Alexandra College, and paid a deposit for a place in 1st Year for September 2020, 2021 or 2022, the new policy will not have any impact on your place. We look forward to welcoming you to Alexandra College. 

If before 1 February 2020, you applied for a place for September 2023, 2024 or 2025, you have been added to a waiting list. In November of the year before your year of entry, places will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis to anyone whose name is on that waiting list.  There will be no need for you to re-apply. Offers will not be made before the date set out in the Annual Admissions Notice which will be posted on our website and through the College’s social media channels. 

If before February 2020 you applied for a place with an entry date later than September 2025, you will need to apply again in October of the year before your desired entry date. Your initial application will be considered an intention to apply only. Any application fee already paid will be transferred to your new application.

 

 Applying for Day Places in First Year

If you did not apply before 1 February 2020 for a place in 1st Year, please apply in October of the year before your desired entry date. Details of the application period and the process for applying will be set out in an Annual Application Notice which will be posted on our website and through the College’s social media channels.  

Any applications received now for day places in 1st year will be taken as an expression of interest or intention to apply only. Parents/guardians are invited to apply again using the application form at the time set out in the relevant Annual Admissions Notice in accordance with the new procedures.
