Hi Newmom,

Moved last year to same area and we were very lucky to get our children into St. Finians in Newcastle. We are delighted with the school and find both the parents and staff really friendly. There are a few children who come from Hazelhatch.
Sorry don´t know about any of the schools in Celbridge or about ratings website for schools.

Good luck with your search.

Hi! We´ve moved recently to Hazelhatch, Celbridge. My daughter will be 4 yrs in May. I´ve been enquiring about primary schools here. All the good schools don´t have a place of her. NKETS has long waiting list, Primrose Hill NS prefers Church of Ireland kids,Aghard´s is not in the catchment area., St. Brigids is the only option & haven´t heard good reviews about it. Is it true that St Brigid´s has got neglected recently? How would I know that which school is good for her?

Is there any website where there are ratings of schools? That would be great help...

Any schools in the nearby area where we can apply?
Any suggestions would be wecome.

Thanks

Hi, I think places would be a problem in most schools, although I don´t know if you are in their catchment area and in a new estate whether provision has to be made? Some children go to Ardclough or Straffan from Celbridge. My eldest goes to the Gaelscoil in Maynooth which I can´t praise highly enough but their are long waiting lists.
