You cannot open a book without learning something.” ― Confucius
At Mercy Mounthawk, we strongly recommend Supervised Study. It is very important for students to develop the habit of study if they are to reach their full potential.
Supervised Study is available to all students at Mercy Mounthawk. Supervised Study provides a valuable opportunity, under the guidance of our experienced teachers, for students to discipline themselves and to concentrate on homework and revision in a quiet, warm and friendly atmosphere. Mercy Mounthawk prides itself in the standard of supervision offered to all who attend. Our supervisors will not tolerate any form of misbehaviour and parents are contacted via post if students are not making effective use of their time.
Supervised Study is currently available for both two and three hour sessions from Monday to Friday (inclusive), each week during the school term.
The next session of Supervised Study will run between September 3rd 2018 and December 20th 2018 inclusive. This session is now fully subscribed. The fees are as follows:
- 2 hour study €250 : Monday – Friday from 4.00 p.m. to 6.00 p.m.
- 3 hour study €350 : Monday – Friday from 4.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. with a 10 minute break at 6.00 p.m. (This option is subject to demand).
A Sibling Discount can apply: The first sibling pays in full, the second sibling can avail of €50 reduction on the above fees. The third sibling can avail of €100 reduction on the above fees.

It is important to note that students pay for their “place” in study and not their attendance, therefore refunds or reductions for non-attendance cannot be given. Fees are to be paid in full on application to secure a place. Students who know that they will not attend five days, must still pay for five days. The only reduction on fees is the sibling reduction. Instalment payment is not permitted. PLEASE READ THE SUPERVISED STUDY GUIDELINES PRIOR TO APPLICATION.
