About the School
ST TIERNAN'S COMMUNITY SCHOOL is located between Dundrum and Sandyford, adjoining beautiful parkland.
At St Tiernan's Community School we offer a wide range of subjects, academic and practical, in a non-denominational setting. We foster the moral development of students through a school ethos based on respect for the dignity of each individual. We are alert and sensitive to the needs of students and expectations of society in a constantly changing world and we are innovative in modifying and designing programs to meet these needs and expectations. Most importantly, we encourage students and parents to become fully involved in the social, cultural, religious, intellectual and sporting life of the school community.
In addition to providing second level education to students over a wide catchment area, St Tiernan's runs very successful Post Leaving Certificate Courses and has a wide range of courses available to the public in our Adult Education Department.
In St Tiernan's we operate a Pastoral Care Programme which aims to develop the student in a holistic way. This is facilitated through daily assemblies and tutorials as well as pastoral care classes. It aims at enriching students' life at school and in general by developing awareness of opportunities and by providing help in setting goals and in meeting personal, social and academic challenges.
Local sports clubs and organisations avail of our facilities also, which makes St Tiernan's truly "A school for the community"
