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

Mural in DART station

In early 2019, a number of 5th Year Manor House students were approached by Iarnróid Éireann to design a mural to highlight mental health issues, to be displayed at Kilbarrack train station. Led by Aoife Bullock, these 5th years proceeded to hold a competition for 1st year students, in order to find a suitable design. Mya O'Hara's depiction was the winning choice and over several weeks her design for the mural became a reality, as both sets of students set to work on it. The mural itself was officially unveiled at Kilbarrack train station on 1 April 2019. Ms Doherty (Year Head for 1st years) and Mr Montgomery (Year Head for 5th years) would like to congratulate all the students who were involved in this project, as well as Ms Buckley (Art Department) and Mr Cox (Caretaker) for their help!

HPS Event: Report

10 April 2019

We had a good turn-out to the HPS event today. Here is a report which contains links for further information.


We are looking for students who are interested in supporting others students with using school computers/laptops, using school email, using Word, PowerPoint, One Drive and so on. You will need to have a basic computer knowledge and to have shown that you are capable of working on computers. You will also need a teacher to recommend your application. This means you must give the name of teacher who has agreed to recommend you as they know you are “good with computers”. Any student from 1st to 5th year who enjoys working with computers may apply. All training will be given. You must be willing to commit to training which will happen at lunchtime or after school (on a few occasions). You must be will to share your knowledge with others, help teachers in the classroom and be willing to talk to groups (e.g. at Assembly, parents’ meetings) about the student experience of being a Digital Captain.

It means helping the teachers to distribute and return laptops, help students to log in, show students how to use different programmes you have received training in and so on. We plan to have 1 or 2 digital captains per class. If we have too many suitable applicants, a lottery system (i.e. names out of a hat) will be used to choose captains.

Here is a link to the application form. Just click into the form, fill it out and submit it.
