Sarah Bossier 3rd year.
72 places have been offered and accepted for entry to first year 2021. The places were offered according to our Admission Policy. Should places become available, they will be offered according to the waitlist. We would like to accommodate all students who wish to attend Sandymount Park ETSS but we are limited by the size of our temporary accommodation. We ask parents/guardians to get in touch with local politicians to seek their support to progress the plans for our permanent school building.
Our ASD Special Class is full and we have no places to offer for first year 2021. We will not be in a position to offer more places until we move to permanent accommodation and open a second ASD Special Class. We urge parents/guardians of children with statements of need for specialist education provision to engage with the SENO, whose responsibility it is to secure appropriate accommodation. The SENOs can request that the Minister use her new powers to instruct schools to open ASD classes, there is a deficit of specialist classes in secondary schools in the catchment area of Dublin 2, 4, 6, 8.
We are delighted that extra-curricular activities return this week and hope all students get involved. Our schedule is reduced due to Covid health and safety protocols but hopefully there is something for everyone.
Enrolment opens on Thursday October 1st until 4pm on October 22nd. Applications will be accepted during this 3 week period. In the case of oversubscription a lottery will take place as outlined in our Admission Policy.
Application forms can be downloaded from this website from October 1st or are available to collect from the school. Unfortunately, due to Covid health and safety restrictions we cannot accommodate unscheduled calls to the school office. Hard copy application forms will be left on a table outside the main door. Original documentation will be returned by post or prior arrangement with the school office within three weeks of receipt.
Application Forms are to be submitted by post to The Principal, Sandymount Park ETSS, The Sandymount Building, Simmonscourt Road, Dublin 4.
Applications cannot be hand delivered due to Covid restrictions.
We will be located on Simmonscourt Road for 2021/2022.
