Holy Family School was first established in 1976 as a result of overcrowding in C.B.S., Clounalour, Tralee and Scoil Eoin, Balloonagh, Tralee. From 1976 to 1980 the school was located at the Old Monastery Balloonagh (since demolished). We moved into the present building in January 1980.
Since September 2006 Holy Family School caters for both boys and girls.
Holy Family School is a Roman Catholic School and is therefore governed by the Roman Catholic School Ethos.
