History of Boyne Community School

        Was founded in 2001 as a result of an amalgamation of St Michael’s Diocesan School and Trim Vocational School. The school is situated in Trim on the site formerly occupied by St Michael’s Diocesan School where existing buildings have been renovated and extended. It has a very large catchment area including the town of Trim and its hinterland. Students enrol at Boyne Community School from over sixteen feeder primary schools and currently enrolment stands at 554 boys and 121 girls. In addition, the school also offers a very successful Post-Leaving Certificate and adult education program.
        The development of Trim as a commuter town has resulted in a significant increase in the number of students seeking enrolment during the school year. The board, staff, parents’ representatives and students are proud of the achievements of the school during its first nine years. The school is included in the School Support Programme of the Department of Education and Science action plan for educational inclusion – Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools (DEIS) – and it offers the fullest possible range of post-primary programmes. Currently, it provides the Junior Certificate, the Junior Certificate School Programme (JCSP), the Transition Year (TY) programme, the Leaving Certificate and the Leaving Certificate Vocational (LCVP) programmes. In line with the schools ethos of serving the community, we also offer a very successful FETAC approved PLC course as well as an extensive adult education programme.
