Welcome to Creagh College. I hope that our 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. We are very aware of the importance of a smooth transition for 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.
The delivery of a quality education service coupled with a strong emphasis on pastoral care and positive discipline makes Creagh College a school where students can effectively learn, grow and thrive.
At Creagh College we develop academic excellence by creating an environment where learning is encouraged and fostered. We provide 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. We believe in empowering and equipping students to achieve their full potential. Great emphasis is placed on the social and personal development of students outside of the academic sphere. 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 paramount.
Our innovative approach to education, utilising the latest digital technologies, will give our students the best possible preparation for a happy, prosperous and successful future. When schools closed last March, our staff and students moved seamlessly to teaching and learning remotely.
I am especially proud of our record of educational innovation. We are one of only three schools in Ireland selected to offer both the new Leaving Certificate Physical Education, and Computer Science subjects. Our 2019/20 6th years were among the very first cohort of students in Ireland to sit these exams. These subjects bring an entirely new, modern dimension to education and open new avenues for Creagh College students. We also offer an array of Junior Cycle Short Courses, including Coding, Digital Media Literacy, Artistic Performance, Philosophy, CSPE, PE, SPHE and have partnered with the GAA in developing the 'Going Well' short course.
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 virtually and experience it for yourselves.
