Our School

Coláiste Muire is located in Cobh Co. Cork. It is a Catholic post-primary school, under the trusteeship of the Presentation Brothers Schools Trust. The school was founded in 1976 as a result of an amalgamation of St. Mary’s Secondary School managed by the Sisters of Mercy and Presentation College under the management of the Presentation Brothers. The school welcomes applications from girls and boys resident in Cobh and on Great Island, in accordance with Coláiste Muire Cobh Enrolment Policy. The school does not accept applications in respect of adult enrolment.

Coláiste Muire is a Christian community of students, staff, parents, chaplaincy and management who work together towards the common goal of preparing young people, for living life to the full, as committed Christians, as concerned and loving people and as responsible members of society. Coláiste Muire aims to provide the best possible education for students in a caring, Christian environment. The highest standards of teaching, learning and behaviour are expected at all times.
The school provides a comprehensive, holistic system of post-primary education for its students. This embraces spiritual, academic, practical and physical instruction, as specified by the Department of Education and Skills (DES). The school also recognises the uniqueness of the individual and strives to cooperate with parents and the community in working towards our common goal.
