School History

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 over 950 students. In addition, the school also offers a very successful 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 time. The school is included in the School Support Programme of the Department of Education 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 Cycle, the Junior Cycle School Programme (JCSP), the Transition Year (TY) programme, the Leaving Certificate and the Leaving Certificate Vocational (LCVP) programmes and Leaving Certificate Applied.
