Greenhills Community College comprises an all-boys’ second-level school and a co-educational Further Education college offering education to all ages in the community. The school is in a quiet residential area, beside the terminus of the Number 9 and 15A buses and easily accessible from bus routes on the Greenhills Road and Tallaght Bypass.
All are welcome to the Second-level Open Day on Saturday, 5th October from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. This year we are very excited as we are approaching our 50th anniversary. We are rebranding as Greenhills Community College, a college for the community, offering the best education possible in a positive learning environment in order that students can achieve their full potential.
We have small class sizes, and yet offer a wide range of subjects at all levels. After-school study, which is free, is supervised by teachers. Lunchtime meals are provided free of charge with students being able to choose their choice of lunch, online in advance. Students from 1st to 3rd year must remain in school at lunchtime. Senior students may stay in the school or may leave for the lunch period. 6th year students have a Common room where they can eat, play snooker and generally relax at break and lunch time.
The Book Rental scheme reduces the cost of text books for parents and includes past examination papers and mock papers. We are a Digital school with three fully-equipped computer rooms as well as class sets of laptops and I-Pads. All classrooms have Interactive Whiteboards and the school is WIFI enabled. Practical classrooms offer Woodwork, Metalwork, Engineering, Art and a range of Science subjects. First year students are helped to settle in with our Mentoring Programme and our Home School Community Liaison Co-ordinator is on hand for parents. We have introduced Transition Year and it is already proving to be hugely popular.
Our Further Education College offers 21 courses for those who wish to return to education either full or part-time. These include Pre-University courses which allow students to use a QQI qualification to gain Third Level entry. Courses include Nursing, Childcare, Pre-University Science, Business and Engineering. Our Software Development and Computer Networks courses include Games Analysis and Design modules. There is extensive free parking for those who drive.
