Out of Zone Enrolment

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 circulated in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made & will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following priority:

  • First priority must be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school & approved by the Secretary of Education. Our school has no such programme.
  • Second priority must be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
  • Third priority must be given to applicants who are siblings of former students
  • Fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
  • Fifth priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school.
  • Sixth priority must be given to all other applicants.

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 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 circulation in the area served by the school.
