All our teachers have at least a Bachelor’s Degree and are certified TEFL teachers with experience teaching all ages and abilities. Many also teach in Irish schools during the school year and join us for the summer months.
We do not have a minimum duration for bookings. However, we recommend a stay of at least 2 weeks to allow the student to settle in and get the maximum possible benefit from their stay with us. In 2018, 37% of our summer students stayed for 3 weeks and 56% for 4 weeks.
Our course fees are all-inclusive and there are no hidden extras. This includes all meals, transport, excursions, activities and class/writing materials. Students should only need a small amount of pocket money for personal use (treats, souvenirs etc).
Cancelling a booking with less than 14 days’ notice will usually result in loss of €250 deposit. Any other course fees paid will be refunded to you.
We accept payment by Visa, Mastercard and American Express through Stripe, as well as WePay and AliPay. We can also arrange direct bank transfers if necessary.
We send regular updates to the parents of all our youth students, including photographs and activity timetables, especially during the first few days. Parents have a designated member of school staff so they’re always speaking with the same person. We also have an emergency number which is answered 24 hours a day.
We can meet students in Dublin Airport and bring them to Wexford by private bus or car. This is an optional extra and costs €150 each way. (Reduced rate for students travelling together and groups.)
A regular public bus service operates between Wexford and Dublin Airport and we can offer advice on this if needed.
Our host families have experience dealing with a range of allergies and dietary needs. Please be sure to give all necessary information when filling out the enrolment form.
Students should organise their own travel insurance before arriving in Ireland. If you are an EU/EEA/Swiss resident, please make sure to bring your EHIC/E111 card.
If a student requires medical attention we will arrange for them to visit a doctor or hospital. Wexford General Hospital is just a few minutes’ drive from the school and all host family homes, and a 24 hour doctor service is available in the town.
A member of management will accompany the student to all appointments, arrange the collection of any medications prescribed, and ensure any medical advice is followed. We will consult with parents at all times.
Unlike many other European countries, it is not necessary to carry identification cards everywhere while in Ireland. We strongly recommend students leave these cards in their host family’s home or their rented accommodation. We will provide a school ID card with photo to all students when they arrive in Wexford.
Of course, just let us know when booking.
I have a question that is not answered here.
