A clear understanding of its objectives as a Catholic Marist school
A school which offers families an approach to education which draws faith, culture and life into harmony, which provide a particularly favourable setting for Christian education, gives priority to a pastoral care that is adapted to the needs of young people, which gives particular attention to pupils who are in difficulty and which encourages dialogue between persons of different cultures and different beliefs.
A broad curriculum that encourages all students to aim for third level
This is particularly important given the wide social mix of students attending the College and given our commitment to the significant number of students from disadvantaged backgrounds who attend the College.
The school is part of the Trinity Access Programme which is of particular assistance in encouraging and enabling students from more disadvantaged backgrounds to gain access to third level. The details of the programme are outlined elsewhere on this site.
The details of this curriculum are outlined under “Academics” on this site.
