St. Conleth's College is a private, co‐educational, Catholic school founded in 1939 by Bernard

Sheppard which, for over eighty years, has continued and expanded upon its founder's vision,

to encourage the educational development of the child and fulfil the pastoral roll inspired by

the school's patron: St. Conleth, a Sixth Century saint and 'moulder of precious metals'.

From Junior Infants through to the Leaving Certificate, pupils at

St. Conleth’s benefit from a rare melding of tradition and

innovation which enables them to remain well-grounded yet

adaptive to a changing world. St. Conleth’s provides a happy,

healthy and safe environment in which students may develop

their own personal gifts and interests to the best of their

ability. Excellence, perseverance and mutual respect are

encouraged in a spirit of discipline and co-operation in all our

academic, sporting and extra-curricular endeavour.

Imbued with the Christian values of its founding family,

Religious instruction in the school follows the Catholic

programme and the Christian ethos is seen and felt in

everything we do. This ethos is reflected in a pastoral care that

provides the needs of young people at each stage of their

development and promotes a sense of care and responsibility

to one another and the wider community. The majority of our

students come from Catholic backgrounds, but those of

different denominations, faiths and philosophies have found

their experience at St. Conleth's to be both spiritually and

culturally welcoming.
