Mr Simon Carey Principal

You are very welcome to our school website!

St. David’s Holy Faith Secondary School, Greystones, was founded in 1906 by the Holy Faith Sisters. We are a school proud of our history, heritage and legacy for educating many of the people of this great town and community. Today, these traditions and values of love, compassion, hard work and trust are the cornerstone of how we deliver for all students. As a Catholic school and part of the Le Chéile Catholic Schools Trust, we are proud of who we are.

Today, under the trusteeship of Le Chéile Catholic Schools Trust, St. David’s Holy Faith Secondary School, Greystones continues to create an inclusive community and ethos, that translates into a very special and unique teaching and learning environment based on the Gospel values.  Our school is a vibrant, caring learning community with a proud tradition of achievement where students are supported, encouraged and challenged, in pursuit of the highest standards of achievement and academic excellence. We are deeply committed to providing all of our students with opportunities in the arts and sports. 

Our school campus is in the middle of huge change: new sports arena (July 2022), fully refurbished main school building, both internally and externally (August 2022) and our new four storey iconic building extension, in the physical ‘heart’ of the school building (February 2023) are providing our students and staff, with the very best in facilities. Our school’s positive pastoral and student support systems, provides an environment where students feel happy, safe and have a sense of belonging. Our students’ wellbeing is at the core of everything that we do.,

We are committed to developing a culture of high expectations. Our students are encouraged and challenged to aim for excellence in everything that they do and whatever that might be - academic excellence (the provision of eighteen choice subjects at Leaving Certificate Level and growing, is testament to this), creative and performing arts (Transition Year School Show; Christmas Drama; Summer Mid-Summer Evening Concert), sporting and physical activity (extensive programme of competitive and non – competitive sports, for all students), service to others or student leadership (Transition Year Buddies; Fifth Prefects; Sixth Year Student Liaison Team and the Student Council) . Our curricular and co-curricular programmes are rich, diverse and challenging.

By exploring our website, you will witness the wonderful achievements of our students, staff, parents/guardians and the wider community and family that is St. David’s Holy Faith Secondary School, Greystones.
