Welcome to St. Angela’s College, a voluntary secondary school under the trusteeship of Le Chéile. Situated in the heart of Cork city, we welcome students from all parts of the city, its suburbs and indeed its hinterland. This healthy mix of town and country contributes greatly to the school’s very special atmosphere, which is always remarked upon by students, parents and visitors alike.
Most parents facing the choice of secondary school for their child feel that it is one of the most crucial decisions they will ever have to make. If you are viewing this website to help you make such a decision, we thank you for your interest in our school and hope that the information presented on our webpages gives you a true sense of what we are about in St. Angela’s College. We are a school with a long tradition of empowering young women by exposing them to an education which reflects the ethos and values of the Ursuline Sisters and the teachings of the foundress of the Order, Angela Merici. We try to ensure that the spirit of St. Angela imbues all our policies, practices and relationships.
As a Catholic school we place great value on faith formation, the nurturing of spirituality and an exposure to liturgies throughout the school year. We pride ourselves on providing a holistic education, whereby each student is encouraged to develop her talents and achieve her full potential, while never losing sight of the core values of courtesy, respect and concern for others as well as care for the environment we live in. Our reputation is well-established, thanks to the constant dedication and commitment of staff, the partnership of parents, and the support of the wider school community. We expect high standards in all that we do at St Angela’s College. We encourage our students to aim high in their studies, to work hard and to be sensitive to the rights and needs of others.
As Principal and on behalf of the hardworking and dedicated staff and Board of Management of St. Angela’s College, I would like to welcome you to our site.
