Dear Principal,

I am pleased to announce that the application process is now open for a new round of Creative Clusters.

All information can be accessed at the link below.

  • Schools can apply as part of a cluster which may be an existing network of schools.
  • A school nearing the end of year 2 of an existing Creative Cluster can reapply to be in a new cluster where the other schools in the new cluster have not participated before.
  • Schools nearing the end of 2 years with Creative Schools are eligible to apply.
  • Monaghan Education Centre will have a key role in identifying and supporting a Creative Cluster for their local area.
  • A total of 21 Creative Clusters will be selected nationally – One successful Creative Cluster per Education Centre.
