Educate Together campaign groups

Today, Educate Together operates a national network of 117 schools in Ireland – 96 primary and 21 second-level, catering to over 37,000 students.

Demand continues to grow for Educate Together’s model of education and the school network has grown substantially in recent years. There are currently two main ways new Educate Together schools can open:

  1. the Government may decide to open new schools in response to population growth. Educate Together and local parent-led campaign groups will assess the demand, and may launch #VoteEducateTogether campaign for patronage.
  2. an existing school might consider changing patronage to Educate Together. If school communities are interested in transferring patronage to Educate Together, this web page has further information.

Below you will find a map of active campaign groups where there is a possibility of the establishment of new Educate Together school. If you are interested in being part of a parent-led campaign group, contact

Planned new schools

The Department of Education has announced that new schools will soon open in the following areas:

Educate Together will assess the demand in each of these areas and may launch a #VoteEducateTogether campaign for patronage. We will update this web page with developments as soon as we hear more from the Department. Further information on the Online Patronage Preference Survey programme can be found here.
