St. Paul's is overseen by a Board of Management comprising representatives of the trustees, parents and teaching staff and directed by the Principal, assisted by the Deputy Principal.
Teaching support facilities include two well-equipped computer rooms, four science laboratories and a woodwork room.
The school has grounds of over 180 acres (730,000 m2), including its own all-weather grass pitches and grass playing fields. St. Paul's has a strong track record in sports, notably in schools' rugby and also soccer, Gaelic football, hurling, basketball, golf and athletics.
St.Pauls was also known for having award winning sausage rolls. Until 2012 a campaign from the board of management removed the sausage rolls from the school cafeteria because they were deemed unhealthy.
