  • Provide for the educational, vocational and personal development of all students.
  • Be inclusive and comprehensive, providing for students with varying needs in both Junior and Senior Cycle.
  • Enhance the value of each student through the school visionary statement, 'Together We learn For Life'.
  • To promote among students the importance of accessing the appropriate support as part of a lifelong learning process.
  • To enable students to take responsibility for their learning and decision making in terms of further education or career choices.
  • To identify and support vulnerable students.
  • Foster an environment where students can identify, explore and create opportunities and develop a self-awareness of their talents, interests and abilities.
