Sandford Park School’s Admissions Policy complies with The Education (Admission to Schools) Act 2018.

  • First Year Applications 2024

If you were offered and accepted a place in Sandford Park School and paid a deposit for a place in First Year commencing August 2024 before 1 February 2020, the new policy will not impact your place.

  • First Year Applications 2025 onwards

If before 1 February 2020, you applied for a place in Sandford Park School with an entry date from August 2025, you will need to apply again in October of the year before your desired entry date. Your initial application will now be considered an Expression of Interest only. You will receive an enrolment application form from the school, but no administration fee will be required.

You may submit an Expression of Interest Form at any time for First Year entry. You can download the form and return it with a non-refundable administration fee of €100 here.

Our admissions notice outlining application submission dates will be published annually in October on our website.

You may apply at any time for a place in Sandford Park School for places in years other than first year. Any available places will be allocated in accordance with the selection criteria in our Admissions Policy. Any offer is conditional on the payment of a deposit in full.
