East Glendalough School is a co-educational post-primary Comprehensive school, offering a broad Christian education through a wide curriculum of subjects approved by the Department of Education, together with sports and extra-curricular activities.
It was established in 1987 to serve the Protestant community of an area approximating to the eastern half of the diocese of Glendalough. The aim of the school is to encourage each pupil to develop to his or her full potential, to mature as an individual and to become a constructive and caring member of society. The school is small enough to allow for the personal and individual attention which allows pupils to develop in a secure and caring environment, while it is large enough to offer a very wide range of academic, sporting and extra-curricular activities.
East Glendalough School is a Church of Ireland managed co-educational Comprehensive day school under the patronage of the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin and Bishop of Glendalough.
The school was established to serve the Protestant community of an area approximating to the eastern half of the diocese of Glendalough.
East Glendalough School seeks to provide a broad Christian education and to develop spiritual and moral values, personal and social skills and the highest standards of excellence in all areas of school activity.
At all times, emphasis is placed on politeness, courtesy, co-operation and respect for others and their property.
Our pupils are given lots of opportunities to take part in a variety of sports.
