One of the strengths of a boarding school environment is that it allows education to spill over into every aspect of our students’ lives, through the co-curricular activities, through the bringing together of children from diverse cultures and communities, through the everyday challenges that enrich their world. We strive to knit together the academic and experiential learning into a more coherent fabric. This is what allows us to have a clear and identifiable ethos, a palpable school culture that is nourishing and nurturing of body, mind and soul.
Sport plays an important part in the boys’ life at Clongowes and several of our alumni are currently pursuing successful sporting careers at international level. Participation in sport helps build friendships, teamwork and a sense of camaraderie. Wednesday and Saturday afternoons are busy times as students travel to away fixtures and we welcome other schools to Clongowes for competitive and friendly matches.
Boarding at Clongowes offers your son the opportunity to live in a warm, vibrant and active community where he can fulfil his potential in a supportive environment. Clongowes is a warm and happy place – a home away from home for our community of 450 boys from Ireland and abroad. A typical day for the boys at Clongowes is diverse and rewarding and includes a mix of formal classes, structured evening study, social outings and a broad co-curricular programme that ensures healthy and balanced students.
Fees effective as of July 1st 2022 and are subject to annual review.
