A new international school catering for local and expatriate students aged between three and eighteen years is to open in south Dublin in September 2018. The school, which will be located on a campus on the former Microsoft office block at South County Business Park in Leopardstown, is expected to cater for up to 800 students from primary up to second-level.
The new school will be developed by , Nord Anglia Education
in partnership with Irish entrepreneur Barry O’Callaghan. Nord Anglia describes itself as a "global family of private and international schools educating more than 37,000 students around the world from nursery to the end of secondary education". It already runs 43 international schools globally, with ten in Europe,
Nord Anglia says it will remodel the existing Leopardstown site over the next 18 months to create an impressive learning environment for students. The campus will feature extensive facilities, including specialist arts and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) facilities to support the delivery of Nord Anglia Education’s collaborations with Juilliard and MIT, respectively.
No details are available as of yet on the fees for the school but schools operated by Nord Anglia across Europe charge in the region of €20,000 a year for second level day pupils. The school is not yet taking applications but interested parties can register
