Ursuline Secondary School is the oldest girls' secondary school in Ireland, having been established in 1771. This year the school celebrates its 250th birthday. Situated in a quiet corner of Blackrock, near the beautiful marina, the school occupies a spacious and open campus with excellent modern facilities. As a relatively small school, student-staff relationships are strong and each girl is valued for who she is as an individual.

Year after year, Ursuline girls excel academically with most leavers gaining places at some of the best universities in Ireland and abroad. Whilst academic results are an important marker, this is not the school's only consideration and they also celebrate students who, through hard work, guidance and excellent support, accomplish more than they first thought possible.

Beyond the classroom, Ursuline students are encouraged to embrace the opportunities on offer from art, to the choir, playing in a sports team, working on a Young Scientist project, or raising awareness of social and environmental issues within the local community, to name but a few. The school's achievements in every area reflect its passion, commitment and dedication to providing a truly outstanding education that gives all girls the very best start in life.

School available for EU Citizens only.
