Headfort School

Ideally situated between Dublin and Belfast, Headfort caters to both boarding and day pupils. The prep school offers a comprehensive programme of academic, sporting and cultural activities for children aged 7-13. Children aged 3-5 are taught through the Montessori method; and our ‘pre-prep’ class for children aged 5-7 (combining children of senior-infant and first-class age) bridges the gap between the other two divisions of the school. With a rich heritage and a strong commitment to fulfilling each child’s individual potential, our offering remains unmatched. Please explore our site further to discover what we can offer you and your child.
