I am delighted to welcome you to the Oaklands Community College website.
Oaklands Community College is a co-educational, multi-denominational, multicultural post primary school located in Edenderry Co Offaly.
We are committed to providing a holistic education with the aim of developing the academic, cultural, sporting, moral and spiritual needs of our students.
We offer a full range of subjects at both higher and ordinary level in the Junior and Leaving Certificate.
Oaklands Community College is a dynamic and vibrant centre of teaching and learning. We have a very inclusive approach to education providing all our students with the opportunity to study academic and practical subjects, participate in a range of extracurricular activities as well as taking programmes in Health and Physical education.
In partnership with our Board of Management, Parents' Association and Student Council we have devised comprehensive policies and procedures which deal with discipline, bullying and other issues affecting the welfare of students.
I realise that the choice of second-level school for your son/daughter is a very important decision that can have far-reaching implications.
Therefore I would invite you to visit the school on our Open Day or during Enrolment Week when you can meet members of our teaching staff, view our premises and discuss your son/daughter’s educational needs. Read our letter about Enrolment for 2016/2017. You can also download a 2016/17 Enrolment form.
Alternatively, you can arrange to visit at other times by phoning the school on 046 9731573.
A Whole School Evaluation was carried out by the Department of Education and Science in October 2009 and a DEIS Evaluation was conducted in 2014. Please take the time to read this report. You can also view a full set of previous Inspectors Reports via the DEIS Website here.
