Kill O’ The Grange National School opened its doors in 1963 and is now in a beautiful new building since 2004. We have 213 pupils and 13 teachers. The school is managed by a Board of Management, which is comprised of the Rector, the principal, parish nominees, teacher and parent nominees. The aims of the school can be summarised as to provide a happy, intimate, inclusive and caring environment of learning that teaches Christian values whilst ensuring everyone has the opportunity to meet their potential. It is a school that considers each child as an individual and where kindness is at the heart of all we do.
