Principals Welcome


Welcome to the Kildare Town Community School's (KTCS) website. Our school is a multi-denominational, co-educational post primary school under the joint trusteeship of Kildare & Wicklow Educational and Training Board and the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin. The school opened in September 2011 following the amalgamation of the Presentation Secondary school, St Joseph`s Academy/De La Salle Secondary school and Kildare Vocational School. Our state of the art facilities are provided under a Public Private Partnership model.

Our school motto of “Illuminate Love Serve” underpins everything that we do. We aim to provide first class educational opportunities to our students in a welcoming, safe and respectful environment. We work in partnership with parents and the community to provide a broad curriculum that aims to meet the needs of our students.

With a current pupil population of approximately 890 pupils and a staff of over 80 people, KTCS is a very busy and dynamic learning environment.

I hope that this new website and app will allow you to get a sense of the work that we are engaged in and the achievements of our school community.
