Urgent: Applications for Secondary School Places Open Now!

Enrolment of 6th Class Pupils in Post-Primary School for September, 2022

Dear parents,

I am writing to you in relation to our 6th class pupils who will enroll in post-primary school in September, 2022.

There have been significant changes to how post-primary schools offer school places. These schools have a very short window for applications, and parents are urged to be proactive in making sure they apply for school places on time.

The board of management is anxious to ensure that parents are made aware of the options open to them for enrolling their children in post-primary. You are asked to read this notice carefully.

Post-primary schools in the area

In our catchment area, there are three post-primary schools in operation:

Coláiste Pobail Setanta, Phibblestown

Hansfield Educate Together Secondary School


Ériu Community College, (based in temporary accommodation in Luttrellstown)

Enrolment for places opens next week

This week, each school will begin accepting applications from our current 6th class pupils for enrolment in their schools for the 2022/23 school-year.

It is very important that parents make themselves fully aware of the admissions process for each school.

As part of the admissions process, each school publishes a document called the Annual Admission Notice. This sets out in complete clarity:

- The total number of First year places on offer in the new school-year

- The date from which schools will accept admissions applications

- The closing date for accepting admissions applications

- The date by which applicants will be notified of a decision on their application

These conditions are set out in each school’s Admission Policy, with further information on the schools’ websites. In the following section, I have set out the summarised the Admissions process in relation to each school in our catchment area.

Admission Process in relation to Each School

The admissions process for the 2022/23 academic year for each school are as follows:

Coláiste Pobail Setanta, Phibblestown

- Enrolment opens on the 4th of October 2021.

- Further details available on

- The closing date for application is the 22nd October, 2021 at 12 noon.
