Alexandra College

Location    Alexandra College, Richmond Avenue South, Milltown, Dublin 6

Alexandra College is a leading boarding and day school for girls in Dublin, Ireland, which has been providing secondary education for more than 150 years. The school moved to its current location, an attractive and secure 12-acre campus in Milltown, in 1972. Alexandra College is now a junior and senior school providing high academic achievement and a liberal broad curriculum to girls drawn from around Ireland and overseas.

Tom Phillips + Associates have acted as planning consultants for a range of development works on this site, including the most recent Planning Applications for the provision of improvement works to the campus entrance on Milltown Road and the construction on a new internal campus road amongst other upgrades in 2018 and construction of a 97 No. bedroom part-three/part-four storey dormitory building (4,701 sq m gross floor area, providing a total of 203 No. bed spaces) including study halls, rehearsal rooms, recreational rooms, administration and storage areas in 2019. Both Applications were granted by Dublin City Council in March 2019 and development works are now underway within the site.
