Welcome to Sandford Park School

Founded in 1922, Sandford Park is a small and distinctive private co-educational day school with 275 students, aged between 12-18 years. It is situated on 2.5 hectares of secluded and beautiful wooded grounds, close to Dublin’s city centre. The non-denominational nature of the school is central to its unique character and draws pupils from a wide variety of backgrounds, countries and cultures together in a secure and intellectually stimulating environment.

Our mission is to equip our students with the skills to enable them to think creatively, reason critically and communicate effectively. We accomplish this by fostering a love of learning, a respect for cultural diversity and a strong home/school partnership. We focus on the needs of each individual student and encourage him/her to exceed his/her potential, both inside and outside the classroom, so that they will acquire the self-confidence and personal attributes necessary to succeed in whatever walk of life they pursue.

We welcome and encourage visits from prospective parents and students.

We mark today's Día de la Hispanidad with a number of language activities organised by Mr Neville including a poster display in the Dining Room. Lunch today has a Spanish menu!

Various countries celebrate 12 October as the Día de la Hispanidad . Since 1987 Spain has celebrated this holiday as its Fiesta Nacional de España. In the other nations of the community, the day is also celebrated as a commemoration of the date in 1492 when Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas, marking the beginning of the diffusion of Spanish language and culture as well as its lasting impact on the New World.
