Principal’s Welcome

As principal, on behalf of the hardworking, dedicated staff and board of management of Errigal College, I would like to welcome you to our new website and to enter the world of Errigal College.

As you browse through the website, I know you will get a great sense of our school spirit, the welcoming atmosphere, the energy and the sense of community.

We are more than just a school. Errigal College is a close-knit, engaged, friendly community in which student support is our top priority. I often say to people that we see ourselves as a big, small school: big enough to offer a huge range of opportunities, but small enough that we are able to get to know our students, with all their individual strengths and unique characters, and able to encourage them to strive to be the best they can be.

As a past student of Errigal College it makes me immensely proud to see the school continuing to set high expectations for our students and to challenge students academically, creatively and through the many extracurricular activities on offer. I see it as a privilege to lead the school I attended and to offer students the same opportunities I was afforded as a student.

In Errigal College we have a strong tradition of students, teachers and parents working together to encourage students to reach their potential. We encourage participation in a wide range of activities to develop skills and attitudes that will assist students as they go on to thrive in further education and in the world of work.

We offer you a team of top class, committed, dedicated teachers whose prime concern is to help you achieve your dreams and achieve them you will, in a school, with state of the art equipment and facilities. The government has approved a multi-million euro new expansion and modernisation of our school. The completed building works will offer our students a state of the art teaching and learning environment.

We hope that as you read our school prospectus, visit us in person and investigate the many other successes on our website, that you will gain a flavour of life in Errigal College. In Errigal College, friendships are made, unbreakable bonds are formed and the exciting world of knowledge, success and endeavour is open for you. Have no fears about post-primary school, it is a time to be embraced and enjoyed. You will progress through the years and leave as bright, confident, happy people.

That is indeed my wish for you and I hope we can accomplish that goal together.

Of course, this website cannot take the place of visiting our school. I warmly welcome you to make contact and visit Errigal College and discover first-hand what makes our school community so special.

Thanks for viewing our website and I very much look forward to meeting you in person.
