Bishopstown Community School was established in the heart of Bishopstown in 1979. It was, and still is, the only co-ed school in the Bishopstown area.

During the 1980s and into the 1990s, the school boasted large numbers of students; however, as the years progressed, numbers dropped. In 2005, a special needs primary education school, St. Killian's, was relocated onto the premises of BCS, and the schools had to share class rooms and facilities. This accelerated the dropping numbers in the school, and by 2009 the student numbers had dropped, from over 400 in 2000, to just over 100.

Famous past pupils of the school include members of the pop band The Frank and Walters.
