School Profile

Clongowes Wood College SJ  is one of Ireland's leading boarding schools for boys, located in the heart of Co. Kildare - just 35 minutes from Dublin.    A Catholic School in the Jesuit tradition, Clongowes strives to support students in their growth towards a greater understanding and awareness of their faith and the part that this plays in their lives.  Our 450 boys live harmoniously in a supportive living and learning community set on 550 acres with access to top class sporting and co-curricular facilities

 Since 1814, Clongowes has been at the forefront of Irish education with our graduates becoming leaders in such diverse areas as business, sport, politics and the arts.  Our warm and happy school places the care and nurturing of each individual student at the heart of everything we do.  We aim to provide each boy the opportunity to grow, develop and learn in order to fulfill his potential.

Our facilities are exemplary, with strong co-curricular programmes for a wide range of sports, music, drama and the arts.  Academic standards are high with boys studying a broad and balanced Irish curriculum over a six year cycle.  Our graduates go on to further study in the leading universities in Ireland, the UK and beyond.
