Castleknock Community College is part of the Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board and was established in 1995.

Our College is a co-educational post-primary school catering to an ever increasing population growth within the greater Castleknock area. A comprehensive academic curriculum is promoted in addition to a wide-ranging programme of extra-curricular activities.

Conscious that our College is situated in an area where education is valued and expectations are high, the challenge has been to set standards which will command the respect and the pride of the community.

Aspiring towards excellence, creating high expectations, developing a holistic approach to education and instilling a sense of pride and respect among parents, pupils and staff are among our goals.

“Mol and Óige agus Tiocfaidh Sí” underlines our philosophy of fostering self-esteem, a positive attitude towards learning, the promotion of responsible behaviour and the
encouragement of dignity and respect in all our endeavour.

The philosophy of Castleknock Community College is one of inclusiveness in which the College supports the principles of partnership, equality of access and participation in the school. We respect diversity, parental choice and equality. Parental involvement in all aspects of our development is an essential and appreciated part of our College. Parents are represented on the Board of Management and there is a vibrant Parents’ Association.

We are very proud of our academic success in the Leaving and Junior Certificate examinations. The College has created its own awards scheme, known as the Academic Excellence Awards, which recognises students for their high academic achievement in both Junior and Leaving Certificate.

Castleknock Community College will always strive for greater achievement. We pride ourselves in providing a high quality education to all of our students, inspiring them to develop their abilities to the full but conscious of the potential for further developments. All who are associated with our College are focused on our success and on providing a quality education for the youth of the community which we serve.
