It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to St. Benildus College and I hope our website will provide you with an insight into all aspects of life in our school.
We are an all boys De La Salle post-primary Catholic school in the trusteeship of Le Chéile, and we are inspired and shaped by the educational vision of St. Benildus and St. John Baptiste de la Salle.
We at St. Benildus College have a proud record of academic excellence. Our State examination results reflect the school’s excellent academic standards and the high importance we place on learning and teaching. We provide a first class academic curriculum delivered by a team of professional, dedicated and committed teachers, whose goal is to enable each student to reach his full potential in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
This, however, is not the sole focus of the school. We provide our students with a holistic education and encourage them to participate in a wide ranging extra and co-curricular programme to enable them to develop emotionally, physically, socially, creatively and morally.. Most importantly, we encourage our school community to look outwards and become agents for social change through involvement in initiatives supporting justice and equality in our community.
Our goal is that each and every one of our students feels supported, respected and valued as a unique individual within a caring, inclusive and compassionate school environment. We aim to provide our students with a strong sense of self and we have an excellent pastoral care structure with a whole school approach to our Guidance provision.
It is my hope that as you browse through our website you will discover a vibrant school community, characterised by an atmosphere of warmth and vitality where our pupils are active, secure and most importantly happy throughout their educational experience here with us at St. Benildus College.
Like St. Benildus, we aim to do ordinary things extraordinarily well and aim to ensure that the trust you place in us by sending your son to our College is a decision that you will not regret.
