Are any of these schools near you?

A study of over 700 secondary schools in Ireland has revealed that five schools have sent 100% of their students onto third-level education in the last nine years.

A league table of secondary schools in Ireland has been published in the Sunday Independent showing the schools that have most consistently sent students on to education in universities and institutes of technology since 2009.

Five schools in total have maintained a 100% record of doing so in the last nine years, including Presentation Brothers College in Cork, ranked as the best-performing school in the country.

The other schools are Cistercian College in Roscrea in Tipperary and Mount Anville, Coláiste Íosagáin and St. Mary’s in Dublin. All but one of the five schools - Coláiste Íosagáin – are fee-paying schools.

Elsewhere, Banagher College, Coláiste Na Sionna in Offaly was named as the most improved school in the country, having sent 100% of students to study at third-level last year compared to just 50% of students in 2009.

The full details of the school league tables are available to view in the print edition of The Sunday Independent.
