Mulroy College has been in existence since the early 1950s as Milford Vocational School. At that time day classes were run and students sat the group and Intermediate Certificate examinations. The high standard of results achieved in those days of up to 96% still exists to this day. The developments in the school and indeed in education have been huge since then. The school has relocated twice. Its original classrooms were in the Courthouse in Milford and from there moved to a four-roomed building at the bottom of the town. Many adjustments were made to the building and many prefabs were added on site until Mulroy College was established in 2000. The school moved finally to a state of the art building with matching facilities.
The school now facilities all abilities of students and provides all programmes from the DE. At Junior Cert the Junior Certificate Schools Programme and the established Junior Certificate Programme run. The Transition year Programme, the Leaving Certificate established programme and the Leaving Certificate Programme are all on offer at senior cycle. The Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme is also available.
Mixed ability grouping is provided for all year groups with banding in English, Irish and Maths only. Students are encouraged to enter subjects at the highest possible level and are pushed to reach their full potential.
