"It’s great to have a good relationship with our teachers. They know us and we know them - and it just makes school so much easier.”

— Student 2nd year


Holistic support

We place great emphasis on the development of the whole person. Intellectual, Creative, Cultural, Physical, Spiritual & School. We actively seek to promote the development of young people who are confident and capable. We encourage social awareness and the ability to relate to others. The essence of Pastoral Care in Millstreet Community School is Respect - Respect for Self, Respect for Others and Respect for our Environment.


Pastoral Care

There is a strong and highly developed sense of Pastoral Care in Millstreet Community School. Teachers take an active interest in the progress and development of the student and are available and accessible to both student and parents/guardians.


Millstreet Community School has a full-time Chaplain in the School. The Chaplain is available to meet with students and organises a variety of co-curricular activities with the School.


Co-operation between teachers, parents/guardians and students is an innate part of our philosophy. We place great emphasis on the development of the whole person.


A great Team!

“Staff Collegiality is central to all teaching and learning. The staff plans and executes schemes of work together, sharing resources and expertise. Team teaching has been introduced, opening up new possibilities for teaching and responding to individual student needs.
School Planning and School Self-Evaluation is carried out in a process involving all staff. Each member of staff has an important contribution to this process.”
