School and Academics
Ursuline Secondary School have a long tradition of educating girls. They have been doing so for almost 250 years and it is always their wish to move with and adapt to the times, whilst always holding on
to their core principles which can be summarised in “care for the individual”.

It is so important that students achieve their academic potential and Ursuline pride themselves in providing excellence in Teaching & Learning. In addition, they prepare students for life after school where they will make a positive & significant contribution to their community, their town, their country & indeed the world.

Athletics have a strong tradition within Ursuline Secondary School. They have been lucky over the years to have a rich vein of talent come through their gates which has resulted in ‘All Ireland’ team cross country golds at senior level in 2004 and 2014. They have also won all Ireland titles at minor and junior levels in both cross country and track and field. A good number of their students have won athletic scholarships to universities in the United States, Ireland and the UK.

Ursuline offer a broad range of non sport extra-curricular activities, including Drama, Choir, Debating and an Orchestra.
