Over 500 pupils are accommodated in the extensive boarding houses. Sixth Year boys reside in the Wolfe House, built a few years ago to allow the senior boys to be more self-sufficient before they enter the world of third level or the work place.  The rest of the boys stay in a separate building called Butler House which incorporates a large study hall.  A House Master and seven male teaching staff live on the premises as well as two Matrons.

The girls live in the original residence now known as Celbridge House and also have a new residence caked Yates House. The new Yates House provides excellent modern accommodation for senior girls with its own resident House Parent.  Several extensions over recent years have provided much improvement to the girls’ accommodation.  The House Mistress and six female teachers are resident with the girls. Dormitories are built to include only a small number of pupils in each. Homework is completely supervised by teaching staff.

Medical Facilities

A team of nurses provides 24 hour cover on the premises and the school doctor holds a clinic each school day.


Three full meals are served daily to all boarders. Day-pupils may either partake of school meals or bring sandwiches and are fully integrated with boarders in the two dining halls.

Tuck Shop

A well-stocked Tuck Shop is open before school and during breaks offering a wide variety of healthy foods.
