The Dalkey School Project National School or DSPNS was founded by a group of parents, who wished to have their children educated in a multi-denominational school. When it opened in September 1978 in Dun Laoghaire it was the first such school in the country. Since 1985 the school is located in Glenageary Lodge, Glenageary, Co. Dublin and has now grown to well over 200 pupils and 13 teachers. There are now 92 Educate Together primary schools and 17 Educate Together secondary schools in the country.

Dalkey School Project National School strives to create a happy, friendly, inclusive, educational environment where each child is unique and valued. We are a welcoming school where diverse talents are appreciated and the school community works together respectfully. We cooperate to have a peaceful and safe atmosphere in which to learn and teach. We nurture each person’s potential and aspire to excellence.
