Another fantastic year approaches at Sutton Park School leading us to expect that the coming year will bring as much excitement as the previous ones have done. If you are reading this from foreign shores or local environs, speculating on the future of your son or daughter, then feel free to use the information contained in this website but also more importantly, in our Twitter Feed to give you a further flavour of Sutton Park School and all it entails. In a school which embraces so many nationalities and whose ages span from 4 to 19 years of age, it is impossible to account here for all the achievements that our school community is responsible for, week by week and month by month. But please trust me when I say, as our Mission Statement attests that “we nurture all that is best in each of the students”.
As usual, the year began with much analysis and talk about the previous year’s Leaving Certificate results which once again were a huge testament to the strong academic nature of our school with one quarter of our students achieving 550 points, 50% of our students receiving 450 points or more and 83% receiving their first preference on the CAO.
Our International Accreditation inspection is expected in April 2019 and as ever is a ringing endorsement of all we do from an international perspective in the Junior, Intermediate and Senior School. Last year we were inspected four times by the Department of Education and Skills and all inspections gave a glowing recommendation of all we do at Sutton Park School. Please see links to these reports in the Downloads section of this website.
We look forward to the usual December excitement of Junior & Intermediate School Christmas Plays, the Carol Concert and the ever popular BT Young Scientist Competition in January. We are also anticipating continuing success on the Sports field as Sutton Park School continues to punch above its weight at hockey, volleyball, basketball, badminton, athletics, rowing and soccer. Our musicians continue to represent the school at all levels with continued success at both National and International level. We have recently learnt of both Alannah McManus’s scholarship for music and Heather Murphy’s Naughton Scholarship which once again illustrates the tremendous achievements of all our students.
Transition Year continues to be a flagship for the school and you will find further information on this in our Transition Year brochure available in the Academic section of the website. We look forward to great achievements from all students in the school from age 4 to 19 and perhaps there are a group of young students who in future years will emulate the success of our Formula 1 Team at the World Championships in Singapore this year. Please feel free to contact us should you wish to hear any further information about our school.
