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

5th and 1st years celebrate the Step Challenge: 11 March 2019

5th year Mentors organised a 1st year activity event in the PE Hall on 11 March. This was to celebrate the positive participation of all 1st years in the Step Challenge which was run by the Manor House Health Promoting Committee.  Since the beginning of the year 1st years and other students have been embracing the challenge of being physically active during their school day.  The 1st years have been especially enthusiastic and one student, Emma  Brown, was rewarded for achieving the greatest number of steps in the challenge.  Well done Emma and well done Ms Johnston who leads the Health Promoting Committee in our school.  A huge thank you to Ms Gaughan and the 5th year Mentors who planned the event for the 1st years!
