All our grinds are now delivered in our Dundrum campus.

With extensive experience in online learning, we also stream all grinds classes. All classes are recorded, so students have an extensive back catalogue or e-library of recorded classes for the duration of their time with us in Ashfield College. Check out our alternative online grinds delivery options. 

We also utilise Moodle as an extra resource for students, providing a platform for sharing additional learning resources to our students. In Ashfield College, we are lucky to have a Head of I.T. and a team of Support Technicians. All of our teachers have received and continue to receive training in how to teach in an online environment.

We don’t deliver one-way classes, we equip students with an insightful knowledge of the syllabus and exam topics, encourage their critical thinking skills and develop their ability to impart this knowledge successfully in high-pressure exam situations.

Ashfield teachers are legendary in their respective fields – highly qualified and vastly experienced at preparing students for state exams.

They combine a genuine love of their subjects with a proven track record of success in second level state examinations.

Weekly Grind students receive our superb, bespoke class-notes covering the range of examinable topics in depth, including accurate solutions to exam questions and subject-specific exam technique, all of which is vital for state exam success.  These notes are an intrinsic part of the Academy of Grinds in Dublin and provide a consistent touchstone in student preparation and revision.

Our grind class sizes are restricted to ensure that each student receives the best possible attention for their specific needs.  Our teachers are happy to answer specific queries and examine topics on demand.

Each subject is delivered over one hour and fifteen minutes per week on a schedule that follows school term periods.

Ashfield College has been successfully maximising every student’s full potential for more than 40 years.
