Principal’s Welcome

To all those visiting our website, a very sincere WELCOME!

We are an all- girl’s secondary school sitting on a 12 acre site at Ārd Aoibhinn, overlooking the beautiful Bandon Valley in West Cork. Nestled among green fields, our school building is light, bright, airy and modern.

Our school is a centre of learning under the trusteeship of CEIST (Catholic Education, an Irish Schools Trust) We offer a wide range of subjects and opportunities in an atmosphere that supports discovery and growth for all our students.

Coláiste Na Toirbhirte is a safe, calm, caring and supportive environment, with an excellent pastoral care and guidance system. We are fortunate to have first rate facilities in all departments. This, together with the constant dedication and commitment of staff, the partnership of parents and the support of Bandon’s wider community, ensures that each individual student can achieve her maximum potential.

We are so proud of all our students, past and present and look forward to the wonderful students we have yet to meet!

Through our website, we offer you a glimpse into the dynamic, exciting, fun, focused and friendly experience that is Coláiste Na Toirbhirte, Bandon.
