About Us

Kylemore College is part of the City of Dublin Education and Training Board and was established in 1964. Our College is a co-educational post primary school providing a high quality education to local people within the greater Ballyfermot area. A comprehensive academic curriculum is promoted in addition to a wide ranging programme of extra curricular activities. We are aware of the importance and value placed on education in the local community and accordingly we have set high standards and expectations for all members of our school community: parents, pupils and staff.

The philosophy of Kylemore College is one of inclusiveness in which the college supports the principles of partnership, equality of access and participation. Parental involvement plays a key role in the success of all students. We support and encourage parents to actively engage in their child’s education. Parents are represented on the College’s Board of Management and there is a vibrant Parent’s Committee.

The staff of Kylemore College will always strive to inspire students and encourage them to develop all their abilities to the full. We are focused on success and on providing  a quality education for the people of our community which we serve.
