Welcome to our Website

Welcome and thank you for visiting the High School’s website. I hope that you find it interesting and informative. We have many of our policies, events and extracurricular activities listed here which will, hopefully, give you an insight into the vibrant and busy life of our school. We cater for the academic, social and sporting development of our pupils. Hopefully by browsing the different links you will get a flavour and exemplars of our many achievements over recent years.  For further information please contact the school directly. 

Browse, reminisce and enjoy

Latest Updates


Today we are delighted to publish our 2021 school magazine High Times. In it, you will find 36 pages packed with students articles, reviews, artwork, poetry and stories.  Click the image below to open as a flipbook.  Once you do, you will see an option at the top of the magazine to open or download as a PDF.  This is a great option as, once downloaded, it's very easy to share with friends and family via WhatsApp or social media.  Also, the clickable links will only work via the PDF version.


So sit back, relax and enjoy as you catch up with what we've been doing this year.  And I think you'll find, despite the pandemic, that we managed to fit an awful lot in!

PHS return to school plan 1.docx

Please see attached two Document that will be of assistance to both you as a parent/guardian and also your son as a student.

The 1st document details the schools Response Plan for a successful return to school. This document has been produced by the Department of Education and has been ratified by our board of management.

The 2nd document has been produced by the school and details procedures we have put in place to ensure a safe and secure return to school for all our staff and students. It would be extremely useful for both parents/guardians and students to familiarise themselves with these new procedures.

Details of both documents will be discussed at length with the students on their return to school.

We would greatly appreciate your support with implementing these measures and we hope for a successful and safe return to school for all concerned.
