Welcome to Creagh College. I am proud to introduce our school to you and hope that this website will give you an insight into the special qualities of Creagh College and the outstanding all-round education we offer.
Choosing a secondary school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in terms of his/her education and career. We are very aware of the importance of a smooth transition for prospective students from primary to secondary school. In this regard, our first year students are supported from their first day in school by peer mentors, Meitheal leaders, who assist them in settling into school life at Creagh College. Our comprehensive induction programme ensures our new students settle-in quickly to a happy, caring and respectful atmosphere where all students can achieve their full potential.
It is through the delivery of a quality education service coupled with a strong emphasis on pastoral care and positive discipline that makes Creagh College a school where our students can effectively learn, grow and thrive.
At Creagh College we encourage academic excellence by creating an environment where learning is encouraged and fostered. The school provides a diverse range of educational experiences that are challenging and fulfilling. Our dedicated and energetic teachers are encouraged to adopt a student-centred approach to education. This ensures that each individual student’s needs are catered for in the school. We believe in empowering and equipping students to achieve their potential whatever their aptitude. A great emphasis is placed on the social, spiritual and personal development of students outside of the academic sphere of the classroom. There is a vast range of after-school activities in which all students are encouraged to participate. The school is committed to the development and care of each and every person in our school community, where respect for one another is held in the highest regard.
I am delighted to announce that we are one of only three schools in Ireland selected to offer the new Leaving Certificate PE and Leaving Certificate Computer Science subjects. We are also offering the new Politics and Society programme as a Leaving Certificate subject this year. Our fifth year students will begin studying these subjects this September and this will bring an entirely new, modern dimension to education and open new avenues for the future lives of Creagh College students.
Creagh College is a safe and secure environment for girls and boys to learn and grow academically, emotionally and personally. I would strongly encourage parents and prospective students to visit our school and experience it for yourselves.
