New Secondary School for Naas

A new second level school has been given the go-ahead to be built in Millennium Park. The school will first open in Summer 2014 in time for the next school year at a temporary site in Craddockstown where work has already started.

Meanwhile work on a permanent site will progress at Milennium Park where the new school buildings should be ready to open in time for 2015. The new school will be ran by the Kildare / Wicklow Education and Training Board (formerly known as the V.E.C.). The school is due to cater for 1,000 secondary level pupils and eventually will include a primary school too. Like all the secondary schools in Naas this new one will cater for a catchment across the town and also the outlying areas.

    Hi Brian; I presume you’re referring to the Milennium Park site? They’ll have to apply for planning permission before any construction starts. I would hope (and if I am on the council I will specify) that a condition of planning be appropriate access. The Sallins bypass and the new M7 interchange at Millenium Park will both help here but both are needed urgently and cannot afford slippage in delivery dates. On the plus side I do believe that both are progressing well. CPOs for the first of these two projects (M7 interchange) issued just before Christmas.
