Guidance & Support

Guidance is regarded as a core element of the school's overall programme. The guidance programme seeks to respond to the needs of the students at all stages of their education in the school. Guidance in the school is viewed as a continual developmental process which begins prior to the entry of the student into Kinsale Community School and concludes after the student has left the school.

Kinsale Community School is committed to providing an education to all students but with the support of the Resource and Learning Support Department it enables students with SEN to fulfill their academic, social moral, cultural and physical potential.

When finished, we will enjoy the most up to date and outstanding facilities, to cater for a wide range of subjects, both academic and practical, as well as sporting and other extra curricular activities.
