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.

Girls Under 17 Match Report by Lorcan O'Connor and Conor Buggy

It was a Tuesday morning in the plots. Pres Carlow took on Tullow in a highly anticipated game. Sophie Moran took the lead for Pres early on with a nice finish inside 5 minutes. Pres continued to dominate and were soon rewarded with a second goal tucked away by Clara Banjo who had a great performance for the blue, red and green of Pres. Tullow pushed valiantly to get back in the game but to no avail thanks to great defending by Chloe Ryan. Aisling Connolly was causing severe for Tullow down the left hand side. Pres kept Tullow scoreless at the break. Second half started with Tullow pushing on looking to reduce the deficit but Joanne Cranny pulled out multiple great saves. The captain Sarah Duffy was leading by example on the wing. The defence held Tullow out and the game finished 2-0 to Pres.Best players for Pres were Aisling Connolly, Erika Hennessy and Grainne Thompson. It was a great overall team performance for Tullow and it was a great game for the mutuals.

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.
