Welcome to Hartstown Community School
It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. My aim as Principal is to work, on behalf of the Board of Management, with all the partners – staff, pupils and parents to create and foster the best possible learning environment for our students. Together we will ensure that Hartstown and Huntstown Community School will be the natural and obvious choice of school for all the young people in our catchment area.
The website provides some practical information about the school, the curriculum, our facilities and our extra-curricular programme as well as our extensive evening programme for adults.
If you are visiting the site as a member, or past member of the school community, I hope you enjoy the memories and good feelings that the galleries and news stories invoke. If you are not yet a member, I hope this site will give you a sense of what it is like to be part of the community of Hartstown and Huntstown Community School.
John Bean, Principal
Hartstown Community Schools seeks to provide for its pupils an atmosphere of security and belonging, focusing on the full social, moral, spiritual, cultural and cognitive development of the young person. We aspire to encourage our pupils’ sense of initiative and self-reliance, their capacity to communicate and co-operate, their perseverance and self-confidence, the development of their unique personality and the achievement of their academic goals.
Our high expectations can only be achieved if each of the partners – students, parents and teachers realise and fulfil their roles and responsibilities.
