Children generally spend two years in St. Declan’s before returning to mainstream schools.

Who We are

St. Declan’s caters for children who, for one reason or another, are achieving below their potential at school.  Boys and girls of primary school age, who have run into personal or educational difficulties in another school, can be referred to St. Declan’s. If children have the sort of problems that can be helped by a year or a few years in St. Declan’s, they can transfer here until they are ready to return to mainstream schools.

It is the aim of St. Declan’s that children will return to mainstream schools better able to cope
