Principal’s Address

A very warm welcome to all of our 160 first year students who begin their educational journey with us here in Presentation Secondary School, Wexford. We also welcome many new transfer students who have joined us here in the school. We all hope that you have many happy years here with us all.

Well done to the Leaving Cert Class of 2023 on their excellent results in their recent state exams. Results were very high, and our students performed beyond expectations. There was an increase overall in the number of our students on average scoring above 400- & 500-point marks. With 7 over the 600 points & 3 students with the maximum 625 points. 74% or nearly 2/3 of our LC class scored above 300 points what an achievement considering the national average is 275, but more importantly what they experienced during their LC cycle. 53.36% or over half of our students scoring between 400 and 600+ points. A testament to the hardwork of our students, staff & parents. Even more impressive considering the two years of a global pandemic. 

There were also many students with many additional needs, both emotionally, socially & other who performed above expectations and is a testament to the great work that all staff contribute each day here. Well done to those students but also to the staff who worked with these students on their 5/6-year journey. I would like to wish our Leaving Cert Class of 2023 every best wish as they go the many different pathways that they have chosen.

At our school, we pride ourselves on the strong relationships that exist between our enthusiastic students, supportive parents/guardians along with the professionalism and dedication of our staff to ensure a holistic education for all our students. We encourage our students to actively participate in all areas of school life to help them achieve their full potential. In doing so we strive to create a caring and supportive environment where all students are known, valued and respected.

We have a proud tradition of academic excellence, & I would like to take the opportunity to remind parents and students, of the vast amount of extra-curricular activities that are available here in Presentation Wexford, from camogie, Gaelic Football, Basketball, Equestrian, Couch to 5K, Badminton, Soccer, Debating, Athletics, Deep-green, Games Club, Choir, Green Schools, Library Club & the Feminist Society there is something for everyone on offer. I would encourage all students to try at least one of the many activities offered to our students by the wonderful staff of the school.
