Welcome to the Tullow Community School Website

Tullow Community School was established in 1978 from the amalgamation of the Brigidine Convent Secondary School, the Patrician Brothers Secondary School and Tullow Vocational School. It aims to provide a comprehensive system of post-primary education open to all the children of the community. The school is co-educational and multi-denominational.


Spanish Exchange TY students

Transition Year Spanish Classes/Exchange Programme 2016.  


As part of our TY programme this year, the students will be receiving Spanish classes during school time and also participating in an exchange programme with Spanish students who are visiting the area from Pamplona in Spain. The Spanish classes are being given by the lead teacher with the Spanish group Fernando  and will take place on the following dates 4th/5th/13th/14th/20th/21st of April and on the 4th/5th of May. This is an excellent opportunity for TY students to get the chance to learn some introduction/basic Spanish. 


As part of an overall initiative in the school, students from the Pamplona region of Spain are travelling to Tullow and staying with local families during April and May. To enhance the experience and hopefully give our students a sense of Spanish culture and language our TY students will be engaging with the Spanish students and getting involved in their activities. To make this happen with the least disruption and so that everyone gets a equal opportunity, we are dividing the students into three different groups who will then assist with the Spanish group on that particular week. 


Group 1 : Weds 13th of April – Mon 18th of April. 

Group 2 : Weds 20th of April -  Mon 25 th of April. 

Group 3 : Weds 4th of May – Mon 9th of May. 


It is hoped that based on the experience of this year we can consolidate our integration  with this Spanish exchange programme and will investigate the feasibility of some of our students undertaking an exchange to Spain next year.
