Expression of Interest for New CEIST Schools

CEIST is applying for patronage for four of the nine new post primary schools opening in 2017 and 2018. CEIST is seeking expressions of interest from parents in Portlaoise, Co. Laois; Firhouse, Dublin 24; Malahide/Portmarknock and Lucan, Co. Dublin.

A decision will be made on the patronage based on the level of parental interest and with regard to the provision of diversity of school type in each area. CEIST is very proud to be offering parents in four areas the opportunity of choosing a Catholic secondary school for their children for the future.

Parents can express interest online on the CEIST website.
