Our campus has been designed and created for the future of learning. Situated in a fully redeveloped, former Microsoft building, the school is located in the centre of a business hub and makes full use of this with technology integration throughout the school.

Sports and Fitness Areas
A multi-purpose, flood-lit category four astro turf pitch has been built on the school campus. The school also has purpose built playgrounds and exploration gardens are in development. Our sports facilities allow students to try out a wide range of sports throughout the year. Students can also make use of our dance studio. In addition, we will be able to utilise Westwood Sports Facility and Leopardstown Golf Course nextdoor to the campus.
Early Years Centre
Our Early Years environment has been specifically designed to enable young students to explore, experiment, discover, take risks and apply their learning in different contexts. Spaces are designed to allow students to make individual choices, realise their personal interests and experience the outcomes of their decisions. The space is considered to be the third 'teacher'. These specially designed learning areas help develop the children's interests and provide opportunities to foster skills in reading, mathematics, physical development, creativity and many other areas of the curriculum.
Our Early Years environment also provides every child with access to outdoor experiences. The outdoor area provides space for the children to explore and learn through collaboration and problem solving, whilst having the freedom to get a bit messy. There's no such thing as bad weather in Early Years, just bad clothing!
