Dunboyne Senior Primary came into existence in September 1996, following the restructuring of the girls’ and boys’ schools in the village and the formation of the Junior and Senior co-educational schools. The Senior School caters for pupils from third to sixth class. There are currently 21 mainstream classes – five grouping at third, fourth and fifth level and six at sixth level.
The school is administered by a Board of management comprising of the representatives of the patron, the parents and the teachers. Elections to the Board take place every three years. Teaching staff are assisted by the Secretary, Caretaker and Special Needs Assistants.
