If your child is getting a little older now and will be moving into a more senior class next year, it might be a good time to organise a place for him or her in a second-level school. The Lucan area is one of the fastest growing in the country and there is already a great demand for places in second-level schools. Many of the schools in the area already have waiting lists and it is important for you to know how to secure a place for your child in the school of your choice. Included below is a list of second-level schools with the name of the Principal, the address and phone number.
A new community college will also be built in the Clonburris area and we are told that the doors will open in September 2014. It is enticipated that most pupils from Lucan East ETNS will attend this school. We will let you know about the enrolment dates for this school in the future. Look up the websites of the schools, call them or even visit them in person and if you would like any more help, please be sure to ring us or call Tom at 0860261061.
