A Message from the Principal

 (Click here to download our INFORMATION WELCOME BOOKLET)

On behalf of everyone in Glasheen Boys’ School (also known as Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál B), I would like to extend a very warm welcome to our school and to this website.

Being a past pupil of Glasheen Boys’ School, it is a huge honour for me to have returned as principal and to be part of a dynamic staff, supported by a tremendous group of parents, working with the most wonderful children. We share a campus with our sister school, Glasheen Girls’ School.

While our school now has almost 450 pupils and we attract families from far and near, each one of our boys is unique and is known to me. Our school has a very special atmosphere, on which so many people comment. Following our most recent full school inspection, by Department of Education Inspectors, this is what inspectors reported in 2018:

All members of staff demonstrate a commitment to caring for and developing the boys’ social and emotional wellbeing, in a welcoming and inclusive environment, where very positive relationships were observed’.

‘Pupils are courteous, enthusiastic learners who have opportunities to engage in a wide range of extra-curricular and co-curricular initiatives’.

‘Pupils’ views are valued and leadership skills are developed through a range of initiatives including the students’ council’.

‘The overall quality of teaching is high, with data from standardised assessment indicating high levels of pupil attainment in Reading and Mathematics’.

‘Parents are very supportive, expressing high levels of satisfaction with educational provision in the school‘.

Recent quotes from our school positivity box, from our pupils, about our school,  in November 2019, include: ‘We have the best school in Ireland’, ‘I really like my teacher’, ‘My teacher is the best’, ‘Lego Club is brilliant’, ‘I’m happy because I have good friends in school’, ‘We have kind teachers’, ‘I like Cricket and the Glasheen Mile‘.

We would be delighted to welcome you and your family to our school community. If I can be of any further help or if you would like any more information, do not hesitate to contact me. Feel free to get in touch by email ( or telephone (021-4544750) and we can arrange for you to visit, in person.
