We are primarily a grinds college but we provide unique and dynamic additional facilities that maximize each student’s potential. We are celebrating 16 years of excellence this summer.
Your Unique Selling Point
16 years of experience with our results unmatched anywhere in the city. Almost half of our students obtained an A in the Leaving Cert last year. Plus we are on Facebook every night to answer questions that our students may have – now that’s commitment!
Why did you get into this area?
There was nothing on offer that was a student-centred experience.
How do you balance running a business and your life?
A work/life balance - what’s that?
What do you do to unwind
Spending time with my two little boys and my husband.
What do you think is special about doing business in Cork
Being a Cork woman I value the support and loyalty that Cork people have shown us over the past 16 years. Cork is a small enough city that word of mouth goes a long way. With the gift of the gab that us Corkonians have, this type of referral is a true testament to the quality of service we provide each student and parent.
Where do you see yourself in five years
We are constantly researching and innovating to enhance what we offer our students and parents, so in 5 years? Watch this space!
