Who We are

The Le Chéile Schools Trust now comprises the schools of fifteen religious congregations. The aim of the Trust is to carry on the legal, financial and inspirational role of trusteeship that has, up to now, been done by individual congregations. It carries out the legal and inspirational role of trusteeship . This is a significant development in Irish education as the Catholic Church and the individual religious congregations renew and reformulate their commitment to Irish education.

2019 Your New Secondary School in Enfield

Le Chéile Schools Trust are delighted to apply for patronage of the new post-primary school which will open in September 2020 in Enfield.

We have a tradition of over 400 years in education in Ireland and we are very proud to be the patron of Le Chéile Secondary School Tyrrelstown, which opened in 2014 and was the first new Catholic school to open in Ireland in 30 years.

Parents/guardians of pupils in 2nd to 6th class are invited to express your patronage preference via a survey called the Online Patronage Process system (OPPS).  The OPPS was developed to provide objective information to all parents and guardians to allow them to make an informed choice in expressing a preference for their preferred model of patronage for their child’s education.  Parents are invited to vote for Le Chéile Schools Trust as their preferred patron for the new school in Enfield on https://patronage.education.gov.ie

Your can learn more about Le Chéile on this website and from our Open Evening.
