Scoil Naomh Erc. Glenderry, Ballyheigue Co. Kerry, Ireland is a primary school situated on the southern side of the picturesque Kerryhead Peninsula. We currently have 157 children enrolled in our school which has seven class teachers, three special education teachers and seven special needs assistants.   

The original school building was built in 1963 and an extension consisting of four new classrooms and a general purpose hall was built in 2007. A further extension was completed in 2019 with the addition of a ASD classroom. We are currently in the process of adding an additional SEN classroom base for children with ASD.
