International School of Distinction awarded to Balbriggan Community College.
2015 – 2016

We are delighted to announce that Balbriggan Community College is being awarded International School of Distinction for the second year running. This award recognises the work of the whole school in creating a 21st century Teaching and Learning environment, where students dream big and aim high. Supported by Trinity College Dublin and College for Every Student (U.S.), this award is presented to only ten schools in Ireland, who are part of an evidence based research showcasing enhanced educational experiences.

The Community College is focusing on building essential skills and knowledge required for college and career readiness. The student experience in our school is enhanced through involvement in a range of activities building leadership skills, expanding college knowledge and growing new relationships with college and work mentors.

‘Most improved school in North County Dublin’ Irish Times.
College progression rates over the last number of years evidence a strong college going culture with up to eight out of every ten students progressing to further and higher education. We are very proud to say that we have the highest progression levels in Balbriggan for mixed multi denominational post primary school.
A showcase in TCD early October will celebrate our achievements as part of Trinity Access 21. The presentation of the International award for 2016-2017 will take place at the end of October.
Congratulations to all our students, parents and staff on this achievement.
