The college’s positive relationship with Tralee Sports Complex ensures that we can offer sports facilities of the highest standard for our rich and varied sports & recreation classes. These facilities can also be used at a reduced cost to KCFE students.

In tandem with our efforts to instil the importance of healthy eating in our students’ minds, our college hosts ‘The Hub’ a bustling canteen which offers a salad bar, homemade soups, rolls, nutritious sandwiches and a range of hot and cold beverages. This canteen has seen considerable investment and expansion over the past year.

Our college boasts the highest computer-student ratio in the county. We have high speed internet connection and computer data projectors in every classroom. Such technology enables our vibrant, enthusiastic and highly trained staff to use the latest technology and resources in the delivery of their subjects.
