 REGISTERING FOR FIRST YEAR:

We make formal offers for First Year Senior School two years prior to the year of entry.

A letter of offer is issued and requests a deposit of €500 to secure your child’s place. The deposit is not an additional charge but will be refunded after the pupil has left the School.  The deposit is not refundable in the case of an application which is later cancelled or withdrawn.

Applicants should not be dissuaded from contacting us outside these dates as there are often cancellations and/or deferrals of offered places.

 REGISTERING FOR ALL OTHER YEARS

We make formal offers for all other year groups within the Senior School one year prior to entry. A letter of offer is issued and requests a deposit of €500 to secure your child’s place. The deposit is not an additional charge but will be refunded after the pupil has left the School. The deposit is not refundable in the case of an application which is later cancelled or withdrawn. 

Applicants should not be dissuaded from contacting us outside these dates as there are often cancellations and/or deferrals of offered places.

It is important to remember that if you have more than one child we require a separate registration form for each sibling.

Boarding Registration Process

A student's name may be entered for admission to Rathdown School at any time for the Junior or Senior School, although early application is advised.

We recommend that all families come and visit the school for a tour of the school and boarding facilities. Parents can express an interest in applying by completing the application form and paying the registration fee. This commits neither the applicant nor Rathdown School to anything other than an expression of interest.
