Welcome to Boherbue Comprehensive School

This school was opened in 1973 as a co-educational, non-selective post-primary school. The term 'Comprehensive' was current at that time and the curriculum of the school combined what were formally regarded as the 'secondary' subjects with the 'technical' subjects. This was seen as giving a broad range of subjects under which pupils with very varying degrees of aptitude, ability and skills could prosper.

Osclaíodh an scoil seo sa bhliain míle naoi gcéad seachto is a trí mar aonad comhoideachais a fhearann fáilte roimh dhaltaí uile chumais. Is scoil iar-bhunoideachais í. Múintear ábhair acadúla agus theicniúla sa chlár chuimsitheach. Tá rogha agus réimse leathan d'ábhar á chur ar fáil. De dheasa seo, d'fhéadfadh daltaí a gcumas agus scileanna a chur chun cinn.
