Enrolment for 2025

If you are interested in enrolling your child at Midhe Democratic School, we invite you to contact us with any queries or questions you may have. Alternatively, you could come to one of our information evenings.

Midhe Democratic School is a Not for Profit company (in the process of registering as a charity) and is entirely self-funded. We are not currently eligible for state support. As such, membership fees are charged to cover the cost of rent, bills and insurance for the school building as well as staff wages and learning resources.

Fee Structure

We are an independent school that does not teach the national curriculum. As such government funding is not available to us and the only way we can run the school is through a fee paying system. We are a Not for Profit organisation which means every penny that is received in fees goes straight to the running costs of the school and not to investors or shareholders. We try to keep the fee as low as possible and structure them on a cost sharing basis.

We offer two pay structures for fees. One for families with a gross income of more than 26,000 and one for those whose gross household income is less than €26,000. 

Fees can be paid in instalments please contact us directly to discuss fees and your eligibility further.
