Heywood Community School was founded in 1990 following an amalgamation of four schools. Three of these were religious run and under the trusteeships of the Salesians, Brigidine and Presentation Sisters. The fourth school was under the trusteeship of Laois Vocational Educational Committee.

The new school is on the site of the old Salesian school and community residence. Salesians with the Brigidine Order and Laois VEC continue to be involved as Trustees of the Community School.
