Welcome to Our School
Céad míle fáilte!
A big St Pius X College welcome to our school web site. I hope you find the information on the pages here interesting, engaging and informative. As you browse our site I hope you get a flavour of the friendly school we are, where every student plays their part in making the school day enjoyable and exciting.
St Pius X College is consistently a top performing school, providing success and future pathways for all our children. In the college we strive to provide the broadest and most engaging experiences for our students to ensure they have the best possible preparation for life beyond school. Our College is a very busy and enjoyable place and we hope this website gives you a flavour of some of the exciting opportunities that exist.
In our school we are a family of learners, teachers and pupils alike, dedicated to the best possible outcomes for all our pupils. We take particular satisfaction in providing top quality education, academically and pastorally, that parents choose and where whole families all learn together; in the same college and wearing the same uniform. Sons follow fathers and daughters follow mothers, reflecting the confidence our college community has in the educational provision we offer.
Our ethos of care, equality and mutual respect permeates college life; in the classrooms, on the corridors, on the fields of play, in the canteen and in the playground. By providing a safe, positive, inclusive and welcoming environment we allow the pupils of the college to flourish and grow to their full potential. Past pupils have progressed into all walks of life including the professions, finance, skilled trades, engineering, mechanical, administrative, leisure, entertainment and the clergy. We are very proud of our students’ achievements, and we take time to recognise, enjoy, celebrate and reflect upon these. Our college’s identity is deeply rooted in our community and reflects the diversity therein. The triangular relationship between the college, the home and the community allows us to create, maintain and improve a college that pupils aspire to go to, feel welcome at, perform well in and which the community is proud of. We are ‘Pius Proud’
