Transfer from other Schools
Transfer of a student from another school
The school will make every reasonable effort to facilitate a student seeking a transfer to our school. The Board of Management will decide on applications for admission to any other year other than First Year by applying the following criteria:
- A transfer is in agreement with the school’s Admissions Policy
- A transfer is in the best interests of the student and the school
- A transfer is of educational benefit to the student
The application form must be accompanied by
(a) an academic progress report
(b) an attendance record
(c) a punctuality record
(d) a behaviour report
(e) a reference from the Principal of the previous school
It may be necessary for a consultation with the Educational Welfare Officer to take place.
Where a student is considered for a place, the decision will be taken by the Board of Management, in consultation with the student’s parents/guardians, his former school, the education welfare officer, whether such a place may be offered, immediately, or whether it would be better to wait until the beginning of the next academic year.
