Hi Jim
I assume your son will go into 6th class in primary school which is our final year before secondary school. So in that case you would contact the school in your area and see if they have any space in their class. I would contact the school before the end of the school year which is the end of June so you can organise uniforms and books.

Hi everyone :)

My wife and I are moving to Ireland in April/May and we need to obtain information on our 11 year old son joining a school in September for the new school year. He will join us in August and I believe the school year starts beginning of September.

Can anyone assist with advice on entry requirements for schools in Ireland? I am sure there would be an entry exam, but have no idea when/how/where this would need to be completed.. and whether we are missing anything in terms of requirements for joining a school as non-residents.

Any advice/information would be truly appreciated.
