Castleknock College has been undergoing a multi million euro refurbishment over the last few years. The main school building is now complete and forms the core of what is possibly the most modern school campus in the country. Old classrooms were enlarged, new rooms were created from old dormitories and a large new section was added which houses our reception area and laboratories.
All four school laboratories are fully equipped to allow us to carry out a full programme of Junior and Leaving Cert experimental work, as well as making use of the latest in audio-visual technology.
There are two large and well-lit art rooms, allowing students the time and space to properly develop both their skills and their work. Recent art work is often exhibited in the school reception.
The Alton Library occupies what was once the Study Hall. Students make extensive use of the facility in their own time and are often brought to there by teachers to make use of subject-specific parts of the collection.
A large music room allows students and teachers to have ready access to a full range of musical instruments during class. Small practise rooms allow students to practise and develop as musicians with some privacy.
There are two fully equipped computer rooms in the school for student use and classrooms throughout the school are equipped with computers and audio-visual equipment.
The catering facilities provide both hot and cold meals and a range of snacks. It is open before school and at break times.
The next phase of the building programme will revamp our indoor sports facilities, including the sizeable gymnasium, but in the meantime we have over 10 acres of playing fields available for both practise and competitive play, including several rugby pitches, a soccer pitch and a number of tennis courts. A fully equipped weights room has recently been installed.
