Principal’s Address

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our new school website and to take this opportunity to tell you about Balbriggan Community College and how immensely proud I am of our school, our students and our staff.

Balbriggan Community College is a thriving, learner-centred and successful secondary school, situated in the Coastal town of Balbriggan, North Co.Dublin. Our core aim is to nurture the creative talents of all our students and inspire confident learners who will thrive in Third level education and the world of work.

I believe our school is here to serve our local community and we do that by welcoming young people from the surrounding area with a wide range of talents, interests and abilities. We are involved in many projects with local primary schools and have established strong links with the community throughout the years.

Why choose our school?

Our management and staff are united in our belief that education matters and that we can make a difference to the lives of our students. We are committed to enabling all our young people to develop into happy and mature young adults. We are extremely proud of the extensive range of initiatives and programmes we have implemeted in order to support our young people in their development. I am particularly delighted to announce that this year, we have introduced a Transition Year programme which promises to be an exciting and engaging programme and one which will introduce students to a wide variety of creative arts, promote independent thinking and develop students’ ICT skills.

I’d like to welcome you into our school community and I look forward to working in partnership with you over the next six years.

If you would like to know more about what we do please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit. I look forward to meeting you at our Open Night on Thursday 22nd September 19.30-20.30.

Best Wishes,

Emmet Sheridan.
