A 21st Century School
At The Institute of Education we continually strive to provide the best learning environment that we can. That’s why we have invested significantly in our school facilities, creating a learning atmosphere tailored to the needs of 21st century students.
The school now occupies seven large Georgian buildings on Leeson Street in Dublin City Centre. In 2016, we built a new 4-storey extension, providing state-of-art facilities including new digitally equipped classrooms and bright, modern study halls and recreation areas for all our students.
For students studying the Science subjects at the Institute, our modern science laboratory enables hands-on learning in safety and comfort with the latest equipment and the best teaching methods. Fully qualified science laboratory technicians are employed to help improve the student’s practical knowledge.
A computer lab is available for use by students to support their research, or for creating technology-based projects. A purpose-designed computer room is also available for all students.
Our modern, fully fitted home economics kitchen contains separate workstations for individual students. Each workstation has a microwave, oven, hob, fridge / freezer, food processor, utensils and storage space. The facilities meet the required HACCP industry standards for food preparation.
Our music room is equipped with piano, keyboard and note-board and is also stocked with state-of-the-art multimedia computers to assist in the music technology element of the current syllabus.
A bright and spacious art studio is equipped to provide the perfect environment in which students can explore their personal creativity and enjoy their Art classes.
Large, bright study halls are a hallmark of The Institute of Education. Students have the opportunity to study in a completely distraction-free environment, in an atmosphere that is calm and wholly focussed on learning. While compulsory supervised study periods are built into every timetable, students can also avail of additional supervised study on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays.
An on-site café sells light snacks and lunches. A separate lunchroom is provided for students who wish to bring their own lunch.
