Students at our new international school in Dublin will benefit from our high quality educational offer which is driven by a commitment to personalised learning enhanced with unique global opportunities. Students and staff will be part of a worldwide community, connected through our Global Campus and Nord Anglia University. Additionally, our collaborations with world leading institutions such as The Juilliard School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Kings College London enhance the curriculum and offer exceptional professional development for teachers. This approach results in high academic outcomes, and equips students with the skills which are essential to thrive in the 21st century.
The new international school will comprise an 800 seat campus located in South County Business Park, Leopardstown. We will remodel the existing 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 our collaborations with Juilliard and MIT, respectively.
"We are delighted to announce the development of our first school in Ireland," said Andrew Fitzmaurice, CEO, Nord Anglia Education. "As one of the fastest growing economies in Europe, Ireland is an increasingly attractive destination for families, fuelling demand for international education from both expatriate and local parents alike."
Barry O'Callaghan commented, "I'm delighted to welcome Nord Anglia Education into the Irish market and believe our partnership could be the beginning of systemic educational innovation for Irish education. As a leading, global education company, not only will they bring international educational expertise into the Irish market together with a host of world leading academic partners, but they are also a significant multinational company who are committing meaningful capital and resource to the Irish market which in turn will lead to the creation of significant jobs over the coming years."
The opening of the school is subject to the receipt of regulatory approvals.
