Welcome to Kilternan Church of Ireland National School!

Nestled in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains, Kilternan Church of Ireland National School, fondly known as KCOINS (Kay Coins), is no stranger to the landscape. The history of our school dates back to 1824 when the Parishes of Kilternan and Kilgobbin were united. This pre-dates the National Education in Ireland act of 1831.

Now 198 years later Kilternan Church of Ireland National School has grown to a school of 213 pupils, 14 teachers, 6 SNAs and  a full-time secretary.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive, happy, child-centred school. Our approach to teaching and education allows and encourages each of our  pupils to learn at their own pace and to develop to their full potential.
