Enrolment Scheme

Home zone

All students who live within the home zone described below shall be entitled to enrol at the school. To download a map of this area, click here


Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

Each year, applications for enrolment for the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a specific date, which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulated in the area served by the school. This will enable the board to assess the number of places, which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

Out of zone

Each year the board will determine the number of places, which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

Applications for out of zone enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

*This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary.

If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary for Education under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulated in the area served by the school.
