I would like to welcome you to the Piper’s Hill College website and hope you find the information you require within.
The vibrancy and variety contained in the website reflects a school comfortable with change emphasising an inclusive ethos and welcome to all regardless of ability, creed or race.
Our magnificent facilities here, which include four fully equipped science laboratories, a language laboratory, state-of-the-art construction and engineering rooms as well as a sports hall and floodlit all weather pitches, ensures that your son/daughter will be perfectly well positioned to achieve his/her full potential in Piper’s Hill College.
Finally, the security of an out-of-town school setting combined with a fully qualified, committed and dynamic teaching staff will build on the strengths and talents that your son/daughter will bring to the school.

May 2015 IMPORTANT NOTICE!!
Kilcullen Road (R448) Upgrade
Implementation of One Way Traffic System
Kildare County Council has commissioned upgrade works on the Naas to Kilcullen Road (R448) between Piper’s Hill Schools Campus and the Roundabout on the Naas Inner Relief Road. The contractor engaged to carry out the works is John Cradock Ltd.
These road improvement works will involve the provision of new footpaths and cycle tracks on both sides along the entire length of the works. There will be new surfacing and road construction and also the installation of new public lighting, new signalised pedestrian crossings, works around existing services and the provision of new services including drainage and sewerage.
A Stop / Go system was initially implemented but this proved overly disruptive to road users. In order now to facilitate the safe construction of these works and to keep traffic moving on this busy section of road it will be necessary to introduce a one-way traffic system. The one way system will allow traffic to flow from Naas towards Kilcullen but traffic travelling from Kilcullen to Naas will need to divert via the L2023 towards Punchestown at Mylerstown (Rafferty’s) Cross.
For housing estates within the works, i.e. Esmondale, Broadfield and Kilashee View – vehicles wishing to travel towards Naas will need to turn towards Kilcullen and follow the diversion route.
It is proposed to implement the one-way system on Tuesday 2nd June at 18:00 hours and it will remain in place until approximately December. The map overleaf shows the diversion route.
Disruption during the course of the works is regretted and will be minimised as far as possible.
