New Students 2020/21

We look forward to welcoming our new Form 1 and mid-stream students for the academic year in August.

All day students travelling from overseas should arrive on Tuesday, August 24th and you will receive information over the summer requesting your travel details for airport transfers and arrival times.

New boarders arriving from within Ireland should arrive on the morning of your induction start date, listed in the tables below.

We await government guidelines on incoming travel to Ireland for August, so recommend you do not book your flights yet, in the event that students need to arrive early for quarantine.

Please check your email frequently between now and the start of school for updated information. Email khadmissions@thekingshospital.ie immediately if your contact details change at all. The link to our Uniform Supplier can be found on Parent Info. Booklists can also be found there from the middle of June.

There will be a team of support staff working throughout the summer, so there will always be someone available to answer your questions. Email khadmissions@thekingshospital.ie in the first instance.
