Enrolments are open for a new Balbriggan Educate Together secondary school, due to open its doors next September.

The Department of Education has yet to announce where the school will be located.

Bremore Educate Together School in Balbriggan will be one of four new schools to be run by the organisation next year.

The schools are non-denominational and are democratically run with the input of students, parents and teachers.

Recruitment is also underway for a principal.

Niamh McGarry, the new schools officer for Educate Together, said that there has been a lot of interest locally.

"Anyone who applies now is guaranteed a place. We'll send out offers next week and then we will go from there," she said.

"There was a big interest in the area as there are a lot of Educate Together national schools in north Dublin."
