My sons are enjoying their time at the College both academically and socially. My eldest son went from a shy child to an outgoing young man now in 6th year. I am appreciative of the opportunities my sons got from studying in the school. I am thankful to all the staff and the great atmosphere

Portlaoise College is a fantastic learning environment. The extra-curricular activities and subjects on offer are great, coding has been a great addition. At Portlaoise College I play Gaelic football, basketball and spikeball. It has been a great decision to come to Portlaoise College.
