The King's Hospital School, Dublin, is a vibrant co-educational 5 & 7-day Boarding & Day school on an impressive 85 acre green-field campus only 15 mins from Dublin Airport & the City. We are an academically high-achieving school with outstanding Sports, Music, Drama & Arts facilities.

We are constantly evolving with the demands of modern life to prepare our students for college and the world beyond. Our 4th Form Transition Year Programme is the most comprehensive in the country, combining core subjects with college-based subjects, work-experience, volunteer work and team-building projects & trips. Recent 6th Form graduates are studying in over 150 Universities around the world including, Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, Stanford & MIT. The school runs a very dynamic and diverse week-end programme for our 7-day boarders which includes: Martial Arts, Robotics, Coding, Zumba, Yoga, Psychology, Movie Making, Web Design & Cultural Trips, with plenty of time left over to swim in our pool, play a sport and to study.
