At The Dublin School of Grinds we offer free trials in all our 3rd year weekly grind subjects.
These free trials are provided to offer students an insight into the unrivalled exam preparation delivered by our expert teachers.

Students who attend a free trial will receive a complimentary set of exam focused study notes. We also encourage students to talk to the teacher either before or after the class to address any particular areas with which they may be having trouble.

Students may attend a free trial in up to three subjects.

If you have any queries, feel free to call us in the office on 01-442 4442.
