Welcome to Headfort School

Headfort School is unique. The only preparatory day and boarding school in Ireland, it has a strong academic record and prides itself in preparing children for the top schools in Ireland and the United Kingdom. The school enjoys an enviable reputation for its pastoral care; a Headfort child is easily recognised for their distinct individuality.

The aim of Headfort School is to ensure that children make excellent academic progress and learn to understand the sort of person they are and aspire to be.

We endeavour to inspire all pupils in all aspects of their learning through excellent subject teaching, embracing innovative pedagogy including technology and ICT. We strive to allow pupils to develop a high degree of intellectual curiosity; high academic achievement and to foster a life-long love of learning.

There is something very special about this school and it is our intention to ensure that we continue to produce confident young people with leadership skills, independent thinking, collaborative working and creativity to meet the demands of our rapidly changing society.

I hope that you will take up the opportunity to visit us for one of our open mornings or come for a bespoke visit. I feel extremely lucky to be part of a happy, creative environment where children learn the educational fundamentals and values that will nourish them for the rest of their lives.
