Also known as Elite Day Schools, Private Day Schools are similar to private schools in most other countries. These schools are privately owned but funded in part by the Irish Government. They have an excellent reputation and progression rates on to top universities is high.

Class-sizes are small in Private Day schools in Ireland, with normally between 6 and 15 students per class. Students will get a high level of individual attention, meaning that each student should get the best grades they are able to.

Students will have the opportunity to get involved with a wide range of extra curricular activities should they wish to.
