Enjoy the Coachford experience – Secondary Education with a difference!
Coachford College is situated on a ten-acre site adjacent to Coachford village. The College provides comprehensive, co-educational, second-level schooling.
In recent years substantial investment has been made in the provision of new buildings and equipment.
A range of subjects is taught to Leaving Certificate Higher Level. This scholastic approach is complemented by attention to the moral, cultural and physical development of the children.
The nature of the joint role of parents and teachers necessitates co-operation and communication. Parents are always welcome to call and discuss any respect of their child’s welfare. Furthermore, parents are urged to make use of our Annual Parents’Day.
Free from the distraction of an urban setting, the College is rather unusual in that almost all pupils are from a rural background. The many fine trees, the hedgerows and lawns as well as the arbour and walled garden contribute to an atmosphere which is conducive to learning and dignified behaviour.
The current enrolment of 560 pupils is fairly equally distributed among the sexes with nearly equal numbers of boys and girls.
