Taoiseach Simon Harris Welcomes additional places for Greystones Community College

Taoiseach Simon Harris has confirmed an additional class for Greystones Community College providing places for 20 additional students for the forthcoming school year. 

The Department of Education is asking all patrons of local schools about how the admissions process for their schools could be improved for the 2025/26 first year intake.

Speaking today, Taoiseach Simon Harris said:

“Greystones Community College has for too long lacked the adequate number of school places causing parents too much angst and stress.

“I have been intensively engaging with the Department of Education and the Minister to seek ways in which the shortage of school places doesn’t arise anymore.

“We need intensive action to be taken to alleviate the concern of parents now and into the future.

“I am really pleased to say the voices of so many families in Greystones have been heard loud and clear and I am taking steadfast action to answer the demand of the people of Greystones.

Taoiseach Simon Harris added:

“With the Department I am continuing to work to advance the new school building project for Greystones Community College to enable the letter of acceptance be issued and get this building to construction as soon as possible. 

“I have been assured that engagement will continue with KWETB to ensure that the school’s accommodation needs will continue to be met pending the completion of the new school, particularly in the context of increased enrolments.
