Welcome from the Principal

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Manor House website which I hope you will find both interesting and informative.

Manor House is a Catholic Voluntary Secondary School for girls founded by the Poor Servants of the Mother of God (SMG). It is the ethos and educational philosophy of the SMG that informs the way we do things in our school. Manor House is now under the stewardship of the Le Chéile Schools Trust to whom the SMG have entrusted the legal, financial and inspirational role of trusteeship. No matter what area the SMG work in they aim to respect the dignity and uniqueness of every individual. The school reflects this aim by trying to create an environment that demonstrates a concern for the welfare and good of others. We do our best to provide all our students with an academic programme appropriate to their needs within a caring and supportive environment.

Manor House has a six-year cycle, which includes a compulsory Transition Year. It provides a broad range of traditional academic subjects to Leaving Certificate Higher Level and also offers a comprehensive programme of general education, an excellent pastoral care system in addition to a wide range of extra-curricular and sporting activities. I hope that you enjoy your ‘web’ visit to our school and that by the time you have finished browsing you will have a good idea of the many different facets of school life in Manor House.

Mary O'Neill, Principal

TY Treasure Trail: 15 September 2017

"On Friday 15 September all the TY classes - accompanied by the TY team teachers, Mrs. Robinson, Mr. Montgomery, Ms. Ni Mhuineachain, Ms. Crowley and Ms. Grace,   went on a Treasure Trail around Dublin , following clues to explore lesser-known Dublin. On behalf of all the TY students we would like to say a big thank you to  the teachers who organised this trip. We really enjoyed it and we would all recommend for the girls in 3rd year to also do this as well in TY next year. We thought it was a brilliant bonding trip and a good and fun way to work together!"

Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador School Awards: 12 September

Two Manor House students accompanied by Mrs Robinson and Ms Fagan attended The Cycle Against Ambassador School Award 2017. Catherine Grogan, TY, and Aisling Bell, 5th year, represented the Smile Committee to collect this award. The ceremony was held in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. The Manor House delegation was delighted to meet the Minister of State for European Affairs, Helen McEntee, pictured below.

This is Manor House's fourth time to receive the Ambassador Award which has been presented to commend the work of our Smile Committee. We hope that this will inspire future generations of Manor House students and staff to continue to spread the vital message that 'its ok not to feel OK, and it is absolutely OK to ask for help' and to continue to help break down the stigma surrounding mental health in our community.
