Welcome to Ballinrobe Community School

Welcome to Ballinrobe Community School’s website, I hope you find it informative and that it will provide you with a sense of the school and its ethos. The school opened its doors in September 1990 as a result of the amalgamation of the three second level schools in the town. Since then we have welcomed the students from the surrounding area and endeavoured to ensure that each one of them leaves school as a confident, mature and resilient young adult, equipped to deal with the challenges ahead.

Our Mission Statement encompasses the values of respect, inclusion and care. These are evident in the warm and welcoming atmosphere in the school where positive relationships ensure that students can develop in a safe and caring environment.

We have gained a reputation as a progressive school, constantly evolving to improve the student experience. We are very proud of our academic record and each year celebrate the successes of our students. We are cognisant of each student’s ability and context but set high expectations for all students and ensure that they achieve their potential with the support of a dedicated and hardworking teaching staff. We offer students a comprehensive range of subjects through our wide curriculum at both Junior and Senior levels

We have a very dedicated staff, freely giving their time to offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities; students are encouraged to be actively involved as we believe their participation provides them with a real sense of belonging and affords further opportunities for growth as individuals.

As Principal, I am very proud of the efforts and achievements of all at Ballinrobe Community School, the students, the teaching and ancillary staff all working together in an atmosphere of respect. I am dedicated to maintaining and improving every aspect of this school.

William Culkeen
Principal

2A and 2F History classes visited the Ballinrobe Workhouse site and memorial, as part of their Irish History studies. They used the Historical Ballinrobe website to access further information about the local workhouse, which was built to hold 800 inmates – the first of whom was admitted on May 26th 1842. The building occupied a 6-acre site on the Kilmaine Road, and cost over £8,000. 2nd Year History students will focus on this very difficult and sad period of Irish History for the next few week, looking at the causes, course and consequences of the Great Famine #localhistory #learning #history #famine ...
