Information for 1st Years 2024/2025

June 6, 2023


Welcome to Coolmine Community School! We are very much looking forward to welcoming our new first-year group this September 2024. Please keep an eye on this page for updates in the coming weeks and follow us on Twitter @CoolmineCS to stay informed about school news and events. 

Pre-Entry Assessments

Please note that if your child did not complete their pre-entry CAT4 assessment on the 13th or 20th of March 2024, they will complete it during school time within the first two weeks of September. 

1st Year Orientation Day

1st year Orientation takes place in August 2024. Students should wear their school PE tracksuit as they will take part in some activities. They can bring a drink and a small snack. A copy and a pen are useful in case they need to write information down on the day. They will have the chance to meet their new classmates and have some fun getting to know their new school. 

Parent Information Night

An information night will be held for parents in early September. This information session will provide you with lots of useful information and practical advice for you and your child who has started secondary school. We will also provide you with an opportunity to ask questions. Looking forward to working in partnership with you in the coming years.
