This beautiful development by the sea offers not just the perfect location in which to raise your family, a thriving yet homely town, great transport links and an easy commute, and numerous indoor and outdoor pursuits to keep them active, it is also perfectly positioned within easy reach of several schools for all ages.
As well as wanting to have choices when it comes to finding the right school for your children, there is great peace of mind in knowing that they can get to and from there easily and safely, whether by foot, bike, in your car or by public transport, and the easy commute is just one of the numerous benefits of living in one of the beautiful, energy-efficient and luxury homes at SeaGreen.
With some schools just a five-minute walk away from your door and others along the DART line, there are numerous high-quality primary and secondary schools to choose from when it comes to giving your children, or future family, the education they deserve.
Two primary schools – the Gaelscoil, which works under both a Catholic and Protestant ethos, and an Educate Together facility - can be found adjacent to the SeaGreen development in Blacklion, Greystones, while the brand new TempleCarrig Secondary School has also recently opened its doors.
Also in Greystones are the Catholic primary schools St Kevin’s National School and St Laurence’s National School, which cater for boys and girls from junior infants up to sixth class, and St Brigid’s National School (pictured above), which caters for the same age groups in a Christian environment, as does the Church of Ireland-run St Patrick’s National School.
Just a couple of kilometres away in nearby Delgany is Delgany National School, a co-educational school under Church of Ireland management, which prides itself on its green approach and Discover Primary Science initiative.
For younger children, Greystones Community School opened its doors in 2015 to junior infants only but now caters for senior infants and, just this year, first class, and will expand year on year up to sixth class. Currently in temporary residence at Greystones Rugby Club, the school is set to move to a brand new building very soon.
For secondary school students, TempleCarrig Secondary School is also very close by, and though it is run by the Church of Ireland, it caters for students of every faith or non-religious background, while St David’s Holy Faith prides itself on not just the educational but physical, spiritual and social development of its pupils working closely with the family of each student.
Just five kilometres away in Kilcoole is Coláiste Chraobh Abhann, a co-educational, multi-denominational secondary school with a focus on mutual respect for all students.
Only slightly further afield, the prestigious Loreto Abbey in Dalkey is just a 20-minute DART ride away, and many of the students from Greystones make this trip together daily, making friends (and some noise) along the way.
For boys, half an hour away by DART in nearby Blackrock, there are the prestigious St Andrew’s College (pictured), which has a very international ethos, and the influential Blackrock College, and as with the girls, many students make the journey each morning and afternoon together.
There are so many excellent schools to choose from in Greystones and the surrounding area, so whether you have children in secondary school, primary school, junior infants or just want to plan ahead for the family you will have, SeaGreen is a great place to live and will offer all the education they will need and you will want them to have.
