At Royal and Prior we encourage all our students to achieve the highest possible academic standards across a wide range of subjects. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum within a six-year framework comprising the Junior Certificate, a well planned fourth year Transition year programme and Leaving Certificate courses to higher level. High standards of application and behaviour are expected from each pupil and everyone is encouraged in a supportive environment to fulfil these expectations. In preparing young people for the 21st Century, the school endeavours to promote and deepen Christian faith and values. Through academic study, games and other extra-curricular activities, pupils have many opportunities to build a sound foundation in their formative years.
A message from the Head Boy and Head Girl
As head boy and girl here at the Royal and Prior we would like to welcome you to our school's website. We were delighted to be elected by both students and staff and are proud to represent the student body during the school year 2014-2015. During our time here we have experienced first hand the high level of education available to every student. With excellent teachers who are passionate about their subjects and a great variety of subjects to choose from each student has an opportunity to develop their personal interests. At the Royal and Prior every student is given a chance to reach their full potential. The school always encourages students' individual talents- be that through academics, music or through the wide array of sports and extra curricular opportunities that are available here. All this is achieved in a friendly and respectful atmosphere that makes a students time here such an enjoyable and rewarding experience-an experience we would recommend to any potential pupil. We hope you find the website useful and informative.
