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.

Deputy Principal Appointment

The Board of Management is very pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Lorraine Gillespie as a Deputy Principal in Presentation College with effect from 1st September 2017.

Ms Gillespie is currently Deputy Principal in Dominican College, Wicklow town, a role she has held for the past five years.
