Number of Students
The school is located only 15 km from Dublin city centre in the beautiful Howth peninsula. The school consists of a large Georgian house with several modern classroom blocks to the rear.
The Secondary Section contains over 260 students and is recognized for grant purposes by the Department for Education. A small boarding house provides accommodation for students mostly from mainland Europe. Approximately twenty percent of our students are from an international background. It is a small school with very few boarders so pastoral care is excellent and the atmosphere in the boarding house is warm and familiar.
