Enrol with us

We would be delighted to welcome your family to our school. Carlow Educate Together NS has become hugely popular with families in Carlow Town and beyond and, therefore, we are often over-subscribed for school places. This page will help you enrol your child into our school in line with the Department of Education’s Admissions Bill.

Before you enrol...

  • You can enrol your child in our school any date between the 1st and 31st October before the following school year. Please read our Admission’s Policy for more information on our criteria.
  • You will be notified of the decision in relation to your application by 15th November of each year.
  • You must confirm acceptance of the offer of admission by 30th November of the same year or the offer may be withdrawn if you do not accept the offer of admission within the timeframe.
  • We enrol up to 54 pupils in Junior Infants each year. The special class has a maximum of 12 places and offers depend on the number of places available each year.

Enrol your child for next September

You can apply to Carlow Educate Together for the 2022-23 school year from October 1st 2021 at 9am.

Please note: The Admissions' Bill (2018) has changed our enrollment policy from a "first come first served" model to one where, if over-subscribed, siblings are prioritised then enrollments are accepted in order of age (oldest first.) Enrollments can also only be taken the year before the next school year. However, until 2023, the school must honour children pre-enrolled under the old system. This means there may be very few places on offer this year. However, we suggest that you do fill out this form during October to give your child(ren) the best possible chance of enrolling in our school. Offers of places in Junior Infants will begin in mid-November.
