Welcome to St. Fanahan’s College, Mitchelstown, a secondary school under the governing body of Cork Education and Training Board.
Here in St. Fanahan’s College we aim to ensure that each student entrusted into our care is given every opportunity to fulfil their potential, both academically and individually. We have a proud tradition of providing a high quality educational experience to the students of Mitchelstown and the surrounding areas. This is achieved by encouraging and challenging our students to fulfil their potential, providing a comprehensive academic curriculum and promoting a wide-ranging programme of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities.
The philosophy of St. Fanahan’s College is one of inclusiveness in which the college supports the principles of partnership, equality of access and participation in the school. We have in place a wide range of measures to support students as they travel on their educational journey in the College.
An underpinning principle of St. Fanahan’s College is our ethos of working in partnership with all members of the school community: students, parents, teachers, Board of Management and the local community.
Our active Students Council and vibrant Parent’s Association are essential to College life and very much a part of our inclusive approach towards education.
It is with great honour and enthusiasm that I serve as Principal of St. Fanahan’s College. The caring, committed and highly skilled staff has always placed an emphasis on both the academic and holistic development of students, affording St. Fanahan’s College its reputation as a place where students can fulfil their potential in a welcoming, encouraging and safe environment. It is this commitment and dedication that allows us to provide a top quality educational experience for the students who enrol with us in St. Fanahan’s College.
