A team dedicated to excellence in education


The needs of each individual student are of paramount importance to the school and our team. Each member of staff strives to ensure that each student is cherished and their contribution to the life of the school is valued. 



The following structures are designed to assist in making real these principles:



Principal: Mr. Anton O'Mahony

Vice-Principals: Mr Diarmuid O Donnobhain and Mr Tom Foley


The Guidance Counsellors work with all year groups assisting with subject choices, college applications, career options and personal counselling when necessary

The Year Head oversees the welfare of a year group so that both learning and personal development are supported. The Year Head is responsible for the spirit, organisation, behaviour and progress of the year group andeach individual student within it.


The Chaplain accompanies students on their journey through the school offering spiritual guidance and assistance.
