Principal's Address



Welcome to the website of St. Clare’s College.

St Clare’s College is in its fifty second year and we continue to follow in the tradition of our founders, the Sisters of St. Clare “to bring service to the community”.


This notion of service is embodied in our mission statement, “to provide quality teaching and learning within a caring climate of mutual respect and in accordance with the teachings and values of the Catholic Church, to impart to our students confidence, skills, spiritual awareness and knowledge to help them achieve peace in their lives.”


We are a diocesan co- educational secondary school under the trusteeship of Bishop Leo O’ Reilly, Bishop of Kilmore and our current enrolment is 550 students.


Our website offers a snap shot of life in St. Clare’s College, giving you a chance to see what is on offer in our curriculum and also to see the many activities that take place inside and outside the classroom.


Our curriculum offers a Transition Year Programme, L.C.A . Programme and L.C.V.P. Programme along with the Junior and  Leaving Certificate. The new Junior Cycle English course was introduced to our present first years in September.  Our Moderate Learning Centre has been running successfully for the past seven years.


We are committed to providing a high quality education

School begins at 9am and we ask for the co-operation of parents and guardians on the issue of punctuality. Good attendance is vital in achieving the best learning outcomes.


We also have a long tradition in extra curricular, sporting, cultural and charitable activities all of which are important to the development of the students.  We are proud of the many achievements of our students.


St. Clare’s has a dedicated team of staff who enthusiastically work to help students develop and achieve their potential.


Thanks for taking time to join us on this website.



Teresa Donnellan,
School Principal.
