Maryfield College

School Ethos

Maryfield College is a voluntary secondary school for girls within the free secondary education system. The  school was founded in 1945 by the Sisters of the Cross and Passion. The current Trustees of the school are the Le Chéile Trust.

In the last 66 years, the school has grown steadily in numbers and facilities and in the year, 2014/15, has 667 pupils.

Maryfield College is a teaching and learning community which looks to prepare pupils for life in all its aspects – personal, academic, professional and social.

The school offers a secure, friendly environment based on mutual respect and support wher pupils will be busy, happy and motivated to learn. Our Pastoral Care system seeks to provide, maintain and develop a sense of concern and encouragement for all pupils and staff so that all may thrive personally and academically.

Our hope for our students is that they will graduate as lifelong learners who will make valuable contributions to society both locally and globally.  We hope that their time in Maryfield will help them to develop strong values of respect for themselves and others in the global community.

The school motto, In Fide Stabiles, urges us to be steadfast in our faith in the spiritual dimensions of life and in one another as valuable and valued partners in education.

I hope this site will be of interest to staff, puils and parents as well as to past-pupils, parents of prospective pupils and the community at large.
