First Year Enrolment

Automatic access is given to students in Category A. Category A takes precedence over Category B. Category B takes precedence over Category C.

Category A:

  • Children of families who reside permanently within our Catchment Area which has a common boundary with Blanchardstown parish.
  • Children whose siblings are students of Coolmine Community School at present or who have previously completed their education here.
  • Children of staff of Coolmine Community School.
  • Children who, at the time of enrolment, attend the following feeder schools: Scoil Bhride (Boys and Girls), St. Francis Xavier, Scoil Oilibhéir and St. Mochtas.

Children who satisfy any of the above criteria have automatic access if places are available in the school. If the number of applications exceeds the number of places available, a process of random selection will apply. The remainder will be placed on a waiting list.

Category B:

  • Children of families, residing in Dublin 15 who have a proven record indicating capacity to support, adhere to, and enhance the ethos of Coolmine Community School.

If the number of applications exceeds the number of places available, a process of random selection will apply. The remainder will be placed on a waiting list.

Category C:

  • All other applicants who have a proven record indicating capacity to support, adhere to, and enhance the ethos of Coolmine Community School.

If the number of applications exceeds the number of places available, a process of random selection will apply. The remainder will be placed on a waiting list.

Enrolment takes place in October when students are in Sixth class. Assessments are held for incoming students in November and the following May. We can help identify students’ strengths and weaknesses from these assessments. The school also liaises with the primary schools in the transition from primary to secondary level.

Late Applications for First Year.

Late applications are those which are received after the official enrolment dates.

Any late applications will be placed on the relevant waiting list (Category A,B or C) in date order of application.

Applications for years other than First Year.

Students may apply to enter the school at levels other than First Year. Applications must be accompanied by recent school reports. Applicants will be accommodated subject to the availability of places. Application forms are available from the school on request.

All students who enrol in Coolmine Community School must agree to abide by the School’s Code of Behaviour.
