A warm welcome to Scoil Angela

Welcome to Scoil Angela, Ursuline Primary school website. If you are a current parent, I would hope that the website provides you with up to date information on the school and give you a little peep as to what we get up to  during the school day!

If you are a prospective parent may you be given a positive glimpse of Scoil Angela and be encouraged to contact us for further information. Visits to the school are always welcome and can be arranged by contacting the Principal Bridann Molony.

Scoil Angela is now Co-ed!

We are delighted to announce that we have extended our co-educational provision.

From September 2023, we are phasing in co-education from 2nd class so that more families can benefit from all that our wonderful school has to offer.
