Hazelwood College is situated at Kells Cross, just outside of Dromcollogher. Overlooking the town, the school is situated on an eleven acre site. It opened it’s doors to students for the first time in September 2002. The €6 million development was at the time a major scoop for the area and it is a tribute to the hard work of Principal Liam Lenihan (Retired) and his dedicated staff. Since then the school has continued to grow and expand. In the early 2000’s there were approximately 200 students in the school. During construction of the original building it was realised that the building would need to be expanded so a phase 1 extension was completed in 2002 just before the building opened its doors for the first time. Phase 2 was added a number of years later comprising of a state of the art Technology Room. In September 2018, phase 3 opened its doors comprising of another 11 rooms and upgraded sporting facilities. This third phase has increased the size of the school by approximately another 40% and the school can now accommodate in excess of 600 students.
The sports facilities include a full size G.A.A. field which is complimented by a wheelchair accessible hard surface area which is used for soccer, basketball and tennis. Indoor facilities included a full size basketball court and fully equipped gym.
