Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Mount Sackville, a school that for over 150 years has offered a first class education to young women. It is my privilege as Principal to welcome you to our website. I hope that you will gain insight into the school and the wonderful education it offers. Mount Sackville is an all-girls Secondary School, situated adjacent to the Phoenix Park. It is an outstanding school with a student population of over 630 pupils. Mount Sackville has been synonymous with the education of young women since its foundation over 150 years ago by the Sisters of St Joseph of Cluny.

As a Catholic school, under the trusteeship of Le Chéile, the school works to create a caring school community based on respect, honesty, integrity and justice. Mount Sackville encourages the pursuit of excellence and a high standard of both academic and personal development. Mount Sackville students are enabled not only to achieve academically but are also offered many opportunities to take part in extra-curricular activities including music, drama, public speaking activities, clubs and an extensive physical education programme. The School’s continuing excellence in these areas is testament to the dedication of students, staff and parents who together continue to build a lively and vibrant learning community.
