About Us

Glenasmole NS

Welcome to Glenasmole National School. We are a Catholic Primary school under the patronage of the Catholic Archbishop of Dublin. It is a school where faith is lived and shared with children. The education which we provide is inspired by our faith and Christian values. While our school has a Catholic ethos, we also welcome students who are not Catholic. We endeavour to provide an educational learning environment, which facilitates the nurturing of each child’s full educational potential, in all its richness and diversity. We promote equality of opportunity for all students.


Glenasmole National School was built in 1958 and opened its doors to pupils on 7th January 1959. It was built on the site of an existing boys’ school which had been in operation since 1864. This school amalgamated with the girls’ school, which dated from 1856 (the building is now the home of the McCarthy family). Each of the schools had two teachers – a Principal and an assistant.

The old schools had been set up under the National Schools system and the patron for both was Charles Cobbe, who lived in Newbridge House, Donabate, and also owned Glenasmole Lodge, still known locally as Cobbe’s Lodge, and extensive tracts of lands in this area.
