St Ciarán's Community School is a co-educational school which is multi-denominational in ethos and which operates under the joint patronage of the Catholic Bishop of Co. Meath, the Christian Brothers and LMETB.   Our great strength islies in the broad curriculum we offer our students. This includes the Junior Certificate, established Leaving Certificate, Leaving Certificate Applied (LCA), and Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP). During the past 3 years we have developed a very successful Transition Year (TY) programme. 

St. Ciarán’s is held in high esteem in the community and we are proud that several past students are now working in the school. Former students have excelled in every facet of life sport, politics, science, religion, education, medicine, art, music, construction, engineering and agriculture. We are very proud of the atmosphere of care and inclusion in St. Ciarán’s and we believe it adds to our unique ethos and culture.

At the heart of St Ciarán’s is a genuine concern for the welfare, happiness, dignity and self-worth of each student. We strive to ensure that all students who come to St. Ciarán’s can reach their potential in a safe, secure and in an excellent teaching and learning environment. Our students are supported by our guidance and care teams who are there for them at all times.  

In partnership with Parents and Guardians we strive to challenge those who are gifted and encourage those who need extra support to realise their full potential. Students are encouraged by our excellent team of teachers to work hard and reach their potential. Each year our students obtain top points and top grades in both the Leaving and Junior Certificate examinations. This is reflected in the success of our students being awarded scholarships in their chosen college annually.  We are grateful to and wish to thank all the staff who share their time and expertise to ensure that we offer the very best of opportunities to our students both inside and outside the classroom.

We endeavour to make the transition from Primary to Post Primary school for all students as easy as possible. We can assure you that our excellent team of teachers and staff will endeavour to help your son/daughter to integrate fully into our school community and to reach his/her potential.  We will always be available to discuss your concerns and to help the students. We are so grateful for the help and cooperation that we receive from parents. 

We aim to develop in each student a sense of responsibility and a set of values that enriches the personality of each person and also those with whom they associate.We believe that our students are equipped with life skills for the future and a pride in themselves.
