Principal Yvonne O'Toole
Principal’s Address

Welcome to The Institute of Education. As Principal of the full-time school, it is my role to ensure that every student who comes through our doors receives the care and support they need.

We provide an environment where students can maximise their academic capabilities and develop the confidence and maturity to thrive as they move through the education system and on to their chosen careers.


Paths To Entry

There are three main points of entry to our school, each one offering students an exceptional educational experience.

Our Teachers

The Institute of Education is home to a team of highly qualified teachers who encourage an enthusiasm for learning.

Many are authors of widely used Junior Cycle & Leaving Certificate textbooks. Others work as correctors and chief examiners for the State Examinations Commission. All have a deep understanding of the Irish exam system & are dedicated to helping their students achieve their full potential.
