Headfort is the last prep school in Ireland still standing, but facing the challenge to survive in the current economic climate, and to reinvent its relevance in the 21st Century. A private Irish boarding school for 7 to 12 year old children from more than 10 countries, who all eat, study, play and sleep under the roof of an 18th century Hogwarts-like building, with dark, gloomy corridors and secret doorways, might seem like an antiquated model for education and proxy-parenting. Yet, with idealistic marxist headmaster, Dermot Dix at the helm, Headfort strives instead to offer a progressive child-centred education where teachers, matrons, cooks and gardeners all participate ‘in loco parentis’ as surrogate parents to the children.
