According to a report in the Irish Times, the fee-paying Junior School of Terenure College is set to close in 2018.

The Irish Times reports that the Principal, Fr Michael Troy O.Carm wrote to parents advising that the number of students in the junior school had almost halved since 2009 and that “a small school with this decreased number cannot survive either educationally or economically”.

Annual fees for students in the primary school are set at €4,800 per student. Fee paying private primary schools receive no financial support from the Department of Education and must cover the cost of teacher salaries and capital expenses entirely from fees.

The last students will start sixth class in September 2017 and finish in May of the following year
