Meet the Team


We thought that we would give you an insight into why we do what we do!

Here you can read our Socratic Oaths; a personalised statement of our commitment to the young people and the community with whom we are fortunate to be with in our school.

Áine Sreenan | Teacher

To empower each student to say, in the words of Walt Whitman, “I celebrate myself, and sing myself’, and to use this confidence to live life in the learning zone.

Amy Kelly | Student Support Assistant

To be an advocate for students in reaching their full potential, developing their independence, and supporting and promoting their social development as they navigate their way through Secondary School.

Carol Flynn | Secretary

To ensure that the office is a welcoming and friendly environment for all students, parents and teachers. For the students to feel comfortable to call into the office in the knowledge that they will be treated with respect, kindness and empathy at all times. To inspire confidence in all parents that any requests made are dealt with in a professional and efficient manner.

Claire Matthews | Principal

To spark curiosity in others, to engage and to connect, to learn and to facilitate learning that will support us to be our best selves as we journey through life together...

Deirdre Brennan | Teacher

I am a teacher because I aspire to inspire students to think for themselves critically, thoughtfully and responsibly. I like creating learning environments that are built on good relationships to allow creativity and independent learning to flourish.

Frank Milling | Deputy Principal

To promote inclusion, democracy, equality and respect. To create an exceptional school that is a beacon of student-centred teaching and learning. To work in partnership with the students, parents and wider community to co-create a school culture based on the principles of restorative practice. Is é croílár mo fhealsúnachta ná: cothú, fás, bláth.

Lisa Brophy | Student Support Assistant

To encourage and support learning and growing, to help others to reach their full potential, to inspire others to be true to themselves as we journey through this chapter of life.

Phil Marillat | Teacher

To create a fun and safe learning environment for students to grow into independent, understanding people. I believe school is about creating good people not just good learners.

Siobhán Lee | Teacher

To foster a learning environment where each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged, so that they may flourish. To model inquiry, risk- taking, collaboration, and resilience. Learning is an iterative process, and I will work to instil that inner discourse within each student. Everyone deserves many chances to dream, to learn, and to be successful.
