Enrolment procedures for entry to First Year
Each year the Board of Management may decide in advance the number of students in each year group for whom the College can provide an appropriate education having regard to the facilities, teacher allocation and resources. All applications for places in Firhouse Community College shall be submitted on the approved application form to the Principal. The Board of Management reserves the right to seek, clarify or verify any information contained in the application form. An ethos statement and the school code of behaviour shall be available to each applicant.
Only such forms that have been completed in full will be considered by the Principal. Completion of such a form does not guarantee a place in the school. Applications should be submitted by mid-October in the year preceding entry and will be given a reference number. The actual closing date for receipt of applications will be communicated to parents and students each year through the primary schools, the College annual Open Evening and other promotional material. (The closing date for applications for First Year 2018/2019 will be Friday 13th October 2017).
For the school year 2017/2018 and until further review of this policy, the maximum number of students in each year group will be set by the Board of Management.
The number of places for 1st Year 2018/2019 has been set by the Board at 144.
