My experience of the school was a very positive one.

The extracurricular stuff is very good. Rugby of course is strong there but not overbearing with other sports available. The school has strong links with charities and they go to Zambia almost every year. The TY musical is excellent- the Irish Times agrees-http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/features/2010/0414/1224268302922.html.

Academically it is sound. I personally feel that a lot of success in school comes down to personal and parental motivation but the school had the right environment.

The principal recently changed to Dr Berry, maybe you should check up if things have changed since he took the reins.

One issue I always had was that the facilities whist very good needed to be upgraded badly, neither of my sons got anything out of the new school which was planned. I understand that it is being built at the moment though!

Any q´s just ask.

Trying to decide whether or not to send my son to Cbc Monkstown Secondary. Have heard very mixed reports. Anybody got any advice.
