We have excellent monitoring procedures in place which enable us to identify when pupils are not working to the best of their ability and to rectify this.

We take pride in providing a high standard of education for our students, provided by a dedicated and caring staff.

1st Year Students

The normal route for people enrolling in the College is to do so at the end of their primary education. Parents who are interested in enrolling their daughters should return a registration form. The school is over-subscribed each year and selection criteria are used to allocate places in a fair and transparent manner. Details of this is available in our Admissions Policy. All interested pupils and their parents will be invited to the Open Evening each September/October.

Pupils Transferring from other Post-Primary Schools

We frequently have requests from parents to enrol students who are already in another post-primary school and wish to join Dominican College. In this instance parents should complete and return a Transfer Request Form. The procedures for transferring schools and offering places in Dominican College are outlined in the school's Admissions Policy.

All admissions are carried out in accordance with the school's Admissions Policy.
