Atlas Junior Summer Programme in Dublin has been running successfully since 2007. In fact, it 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 lessons are fun and challenging at the same time. For the purpose of developing students’ English fluency and accuracy, they include activities such as classroom themes and projects. What’s more, the projects link into students’ real lives and interests.

In order to ensure that the classroom content and activities are tailored for each age group, in our Junior Summer Programme in Dublin we split the students by age. Moreover, the timetable is designed in a zig-zag format. That means that some of the activities take place in the mornings and some are in the afternoons.

Additionally, students are brought to the school by Atlas’ private buses as well as dropped home in the evenings after their excursions. In other words, there is no need for them to use public transport. This undoubtedly creates a safer environment for the students travelling to and from the school.

Atlas Junior Summer Programme in Dublin surely 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. Moreover, they will have breakfast and dinner at home and a packed lunch for school. As has been noted, private bus will collect them from the families each morning and bring them back each evening.
