Taster Days and Open Days

Getting a real sense of what is so unique about our school is so important. 

That’s why we would ordinarily offer Taster Days and Open Days throughout the school year.  However, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions we can offer as an alternative our Virtual Tour and would be happy to arrange a Zoom Call with Mr Dermot Dix our Junior School Principal.

When available a Taster Day is a wonderful way for your daughter to experience life at Rathdown School first hand. Girls take part in different lessons and activities in both smaller groups and full classes. Dates and availability of places for our Taster Days in the future will be announced once the current restrictions allow.

Taster Days and Open Days are scheduled for the following dates:

Junior School Taster Day  Date TBC
Senior School Taster Day for 5th Class Date TBC
Boarding Open Evening Date TBC
Senior School Open Day Date TBC 
Senior School Taster Day for 6th Class Date TBC 
Scholarship Examination via Zoom 14th November 2020
Boarding Open Evening Date TBC 


When the restrictions are lifted a visit during the school term is the best option since you will experience the school in full swing with students and staff going about their daily activities and classes.

As part of your visit, you can meet with the Junior School Principal and the Head of Boarding if you are considering boarding at Rathdown.

If there is a particular aspect of school life you would like to see, or if you would like to visit the school at some other time, please call our Registrar, Anne on +353 (0)1 285 3133 or email the Registrar and Anne will be happy to make individual arrangements or fill out our Enquiry form
