Our Mission Statement

Presentation College is, by choice, a truly co-educational school. We aim to prepare all of our pupils, girls and boys alike for the challenges, responsibilities and experience of adult life. All members of the school community - pupils, parents, teachers and other staff - are held in very high regard and their dignity, worth and individuality is respected. We strive to build a sense of community based on Christian values. The school’s Code of Conduct acknowledges this and aims to promote a culture of respect throughout the school. It recognises that good discipline enables good teaching and allows good learning to take place.

Decision of the Press Council of Ireland

The Board of Management welcomes the decisions of the Press Ombudsman and the Press Council of Ireland upholding the complaint of the Board of Management against The Nationalist concerning its reporting of school assemblies last November.


It was determined that The Nationalist breached Principle 1 (Truth and Accuracy) and Principle 2 (Distinguishing Fact and Comment) of the Code of Practice of the Press Council of Ireland. The full decision can be accessed at the following link: Press Ombudsman and Press Council of Ireland Decision - Presentation College, Carlow v The Nationalist


The Board of Management would like to sincerely thank all those who stood by our school community during this difficult time - for the support we received  from within our school community, local community and further afield.



Additional Accommodation Approval

The Board of Management is very pleased to welcome the approval by the Department of Education and Skills of substantial additional accommodation for our school, based on a long term projected enrolment of one thousand students. 


This approval by the Department of Education and Skills is testament to the progression and development of the school over recent years and is a strong indicator of the reputation and status of the school moving forward. The provision of the additional accommodation will ease the annual oversubscription for places in our school and will enhance the top-class facilities already available to students.


The additional accommodation includes thirteen general classrooms, Staffroom, Multimedia Room, Music Room, DCG Room, Construction Studies Room, Technology Room, Textiles Room, two Science Laboratories, Pastoral Offices and associated circulation areas, student locker spaces and toilets.


Our school community looks forward, with excitement and anticipation, to the further development of Presentation College.



Statement re School - PE Uniform Regulations

The rules concerning the correct wearing of our school uniform have not changed since previous years, other than the introduction of a half-zip top for First Year students this year.


Students are regularly reminded of school rules and regulations at Assembly.


The school continues to look after the pastoral care needs of all students through its excellent Pastoral Care/Student Support systems in the school.


Any queries in relation to the above from parents or students will be dealt with in the normal way through the usual school channels.

Presentation College Carlow

Presentation College, Carlow

The school is a co-educational Catholic voluntary secondary school which caters for pupils of all religions and backgrounds. We aim to provide our pupils with an education that equips them for life and living in the modern world. We aim to challenge students to share with us the Christian vision of life. We have drawn up a Mission Statement that describes the kind of school we wish to be. We hope that every member of the school community will attempt to live by it and we intend that all of our decisions are informed by it and our school development plans based on it.
