Principal's Welcome


Welcome to Kennedy College.

Kennedy College is a co-educational, interdenominational secondary school under the Patronage of Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board.

Our school has a long-established tradition of providing high-quality education at both Post Primary and Post Leaving Certificate level to the people of New Ross and the surrounding areas.

Through our visionary statement, ‘Together We Learn for Life’ we are committed to facilitating a safe, supportive and friendly environment where each student has the opportunity to reach their potential.

The active participation of students in their own learning is a priority in Kennedy College. Through our experienced and dedicated staff, we promote a positive and inclusive teaching and learning environment by setting out high expectations for each learner.

Our goal is to enable all students to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens who contribute positively to society.

We aspire to continue collaborating with our existing students, parents and guardians and look forward to meeting and working in partnership with all prospective students, parents and guardians.

I invite you to use our website to explore our excellent school facilities, curricula, well-equipped practical workshops, computer rooms, extracurricular and canteen facilities and discover what Kennedy College has to offer you.
