Welcome to Ceara School


Welcome to our Web Site.  I hope that you find it interesting.  It contains some information about our school, the very special children who are educated within it, the staff who work here and the parents who daily entrust their children into our care and protection.

 Ceara, like most special schools has a preschool section, a Primary section and a post primary section.  Children attending the school are aged from three years to nineteen years. 

Like all schools, Ceara is inspected by the Department for Education.  Our last inspection described the school as "outstanding".  In addition, Ceara was the first special school in the Province to attain the prestigious "Investors in Peoples" Award.  We are proud of these achievements.
