Woodlands Academy is an official exam preparation centre for the Cambridge examinations.  These examinations are extremely valuable to the future lives of our students. They are internationally recognised examinations, which may be used for entrance to University, are recognised in Work placements globally and will generally give students a very good English Language grounding. 


TUSLA, the Child and Family Agency was established on the 1st January 2014 in Ireland and is now the dedicated State agency responsible for improving wellbeing and outcomes for children. All students at Woodlands Academy are registered with TUSLA before arrival. Woodlands Academy meets all the requirements under this Agency and therefore are recognised by the Department of Education as providing education in an independent private school in Ireland.


Woodlands Academy’s Summer Camp is recognised by the Irish Department of Education (ACELS). See for a list of all recognised schools in Ireland.

The Woodlands Academy Summer Camp for young learners is now enfranchised to carry the ACELS legend.  The Woodlands Academy Summer Camp meets regulations governing the recognition of English language teaching organisations in Ireland. 

What does this mean?

Achieving recognition demonstrates that Woodlands Academy has attained the standards laid down by Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) and we are enfranchised to carry the ACELS logo and legend. The ACELS logo verifies ACELS recognition which is evidence of independent external verification of our services in line with national and international norms and standards.
