We have based our name on the famous mythical character, Setanta, who later became known as Cú Chulainn, after he killed the famous hound of Culann. He is a proud, courageous and heroic character, and is central to many well-known Celtic legends.

Bród, Misneach & Meitheal Art Piece
The Jigsaw, which was designed by our Art Department to coincide with the official opening of the college last year, took pride of place on stage during our first Transition Year and Sixth Graduation ceremonies in May this year. Our students have become very aware of the significance of the piece as our core values are constantly discussed at assemblies, tutorials and school gatherings of every kind. The striking visualisation of our values helps students to make tangible these concepts. Our students know that we are proud of them when they show courage in their learning and demonstrate kindness, care and respect to each other and to us.
In order to deeply embed these values, we draw on them in all aspects of our teaching and learning in the school, recognising that while academic excellence is our core business, the highest standards of excellence can be achieved in many other areas of life.
