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.
