Atlas Junior Dublin has been running successfully since 2007 and is one of the best regarded Junior programmes in the city. This exclusive homestay programme is centrally located in a leafy suburb of Dublin on the private grounds of a school.

Our fun and challenging lessons focus on developing students’ English fluency and accuracy through classroom themes and projects that link into students’ real lives and interests.

Students are brought to the school by Atlas’ private buses and dropped home in the evenings after their excursions. This means there is no need for use of public transport which creates a safer environment for the students travelling to and from the school.

Atlas Junior Dublin is a great way for young learners to get to see the city and experience the delights that Dublin has to offer!

 

Features of  our Dublin school include:

  • 25 bright and spacious classrooms
  • Wifi throughout the school
  • Large common areas for students to use at break and lunchtime
  • Indoor and outdoor sports facilities available nearby

 

Accommodation: Homestay

                

Students will be placed in experienced host families located in the southern part of Dublin. Students will have breakfast and dinner with their families and a packed lunch in the school. A private bus will collect the student from the families each morning and bring them back to the families each evening.
