This article needs additional citations for verification. (March 2008)
Mount Anville Secondary School is a Roman Catholic, voluntary all-girls post-primary school in Goatstown, a suburb of Dublin, in Ireland. It was originally an all-boarding school, but due to decreased demand for such schools has since become a day-school. It has approximately 659 students, and is attached to Mount Anville Montessori Junior School and Mount Anville Convent.
The school has its own chapel, featuring a stained-glass window by Irish artist Harry Clarke. The school also has sporting facilities, including a large sports-hall, three astro-turf playing pitches and tennis courts.
