According to the school's Student Handbook, it has a reputation for high academic standards and positive discipline. It is divided into a Primary school and a Secondary school. The school's motto is "Quo Non Ascendam". The current Principal is Mr. David Horan. Head of Secondary is Ms. Anne Coakley.
