New School Admissions legislation was signed into law by the Minister for Education and Skills in October 2018 and further amendments were made in February 2020. Based on this legislation, a new admissions policy was ratified by our Board of Management on April 30th 2020.

Any applications for 2021/2022 made prior to the new legislation will be honoured.
