Hazelwood College is situated at Kells Cross, just outside of Dromcollogher. 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 2016, phase 3 will open its doors comprising of another 11 rooms and other facilities. This third phase will increase the size of the school by approximately another 40% and will accommodate in excess of 600 students.
Overlooking the town, the school is situated on an eleven acre site. The playing area consists of a full size G.A.A. field which is complimented by a hard surface area which is used for soccer, basketball and tennis.
