The King's Hospital school is a co-educational 7 day Boarding and Day school based on a peaceful and inspirational 85 acre campus only 15 minutes from Dublin International Airport and the city centre.
The school has been at the forefront of education in Ireland since 1669, annually producing academic results amongst the best on the island.
Offering a very broad range of subjects, excellent teaching and learning facilities, together with individual and personal study and career guidance, recent graduates are currently attending 150 universities around the world.
But - KH is much more than just a centre for academic excellence.
Everyone has a valued place at the school and each pupilâ€™s individual and varied talents are nurtured and encouraged, in the classroom and their daily lives, to ensure that each achieve their full potential, optimise their talents and reach their personal goals.
Tradition is embraced and blended with progressive thinking and state of the art facilities to ensure that pupils develop a personal love and appreciation of learning - so vital in today's world - to enable graduates to adapt and achieve in their future study and careers and to cope with life experiences.
The 700+ pupil population represents a natural and healthy balance reflective of society in the world at large.
A special sense of community exists at the school, because it is 'home' to all boarding pupils and to the majority of the staff. The resulting daily interaction between pupils and teachers, together with the wide variety of extra curricular opportunities and facilities available, promotes mutual respect and ensures a supportive and encouraging atmosphere on campus.
Graduates of The Kingâ€™s Hospital are well balanced with a strong moral ethic and sense of values. Pupils become independent and caring individuals taking personal responsibility for their own actions and respecting all others, with the ability to lead and positively influence the communities in which they live and work.
