In 1962 the Ursuline Sisters from Waterford first came to Cabinteely. They bought Kilbogget House and the lands associated with it. The school opened for the first time on the 4th September 1963 under the title of “Our Lady of the Angels”. It was a Secondary Day School and a private Primary School for girls. In the following years the school developed in the two storey Convent buildings (E and F building) and in adjacent prefab classrooms (G Buildings) until the new Secondary School building was opened in 1970.

On the 1st August 1975 a Board of Management formally took over the management of the school and it became Cabinteely Community School under Principal Liam Ryder.

The main school building opened in 1978-79. The school Sports Hall became was ready for use in September 1982. The Ursuline Junior School closed in June 1984 and its buildings, including St. Angela’s Hall, were purchased, on behalf of the community School, by the Department of Education & Skills.

As we approach our 50th anniversary, we look forward to the addition of a new permanent building for our Merici Centre along with additional classrooms on the site of the current G buildings.
