St.Joseph’s Mercy Secondary School
“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” – William Butler Yeats
In St Joseph’s, we are committed to the holistic development of our students, focusing on the academic, personal, social and spiritual development of all within a dynamic, caring and welcoming environment. We strive for excellence in teaching and learning, and our exceptionally dedicated teachers set out to motivate and challenge our students, inspiring them to become lifelong learners as well as mature, active and responsible members of society.
We have inherited a strong tradition of high educational standards and an ethos based on Christian values from the Sisters of Mercy. Now, under the trusteeship of CEIST, we continue their work, enabling students to progress and advance during their time in St Joseph’s, while also fostering in them such core values as respect, courtesy and empathy.
We recognise and value all our students as individuals, catering for the needs of all, and providing support in all aspects of school life. Each student is encouraged to reach her full potential within a broad and comprehensive curriculum. In addition, our students’ talents and strengths can be explored and nurtured through a range of extra and co-curricular activities and opportunities on offer.
