To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the status of the provision of a new secondary school for the Swords area of County Dublin as announced in November 2015; if he has identified locations for the proposed school; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
My Department has secured planning permission for a Post-Primary school (Swords Community College RN 76475D) on the Mooretown site in North Swords. A tender competition has taken place to appoint a building contractor to provide permanent accommodation on that site.
The Letter of Intent to the successful contractor has issued. When the documentation requested in the letter of Intent is received a letter of Acceptance will then issue and the project will then proceed to construction.
The school opened in September 2018 within existing school accommodation.
