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



The 2018 TY School Musical will be ‘Oklahoma!’

Auditions for the Musical will be held on Tuesday 28 August and Wednesday 29 August. Call-backs will then be held on Thursday 30 August.  Students may audition any of these songs from the Musical:

  1. 'People will say we're in love'
  2. 'I can't say no'
  3. 'Oklahoma'

However, if any student would prefer to audition another song or scene from the Musical, they will be accommodated. All TY students are expected to audition on the date and time allocated to them. The schedule was updated on 10 July 2018. Click here.

For anyone interested in familiarising themselves with the plot, characters and scenes from the musical as well as some scenes (via YouTube) from the movie version, please look at the following:

There are also spaces available for both the Art (and Back Stage) crew as well as the Enterprise team (who market and advertise the show). Email either Ms Gilroy  (aifric.gilroy@mhschool.onmicrosoft.com) or Mr Montgomery (warren.montgomery@manorhouseschool.com) in the month of August, if you are interested in either of these positions.You must outline why you would be best suited for the role on either the Art or Enterprise team.

All students are expected to attend rehearsals in late August, no matter what role you are allocated. 

Best of luck with the rehearsals and enjoy the Summer now that the JC is all over!
