History

Maynooth Post Primary is a co-educational, multi-denominational and none, school with non selective entry. It opened in 1971 as a Vocational School in the grounds of the Presentation Convent and moved to its present location on the Moyglare Road in 1972 under the auspices of County Kildare Vocational Educational Committee now know as Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board.

An initial extension was opened in 1983 with further enlargement and the creation of a Garden of Remberance in 1996 and our most recent extension in 2007 with numbers going from 110 in 1971 to current enrolment of 1,253.

The school follows an accademic curriculum leading to Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate Examinations including The Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP) and Leaving Certificate Applied Program (LCA). All subjects are taught at Higher and Ordinary level, with English, Irish and Mathematics also available at Foundation level. There is a one year optional Transition Year. Full subject details can be found in the Academic section of the Student Category. We offer a wide range of extra curricular activities including sports, debating, public speaking and an annual musical.
