History & Facilities

Left float

Sutton Park School was founded in 1957 by a group of leading local professional and business people as a co-educational and multi-denominational school which, while catering mainly for day pupils, retains the spirit and sense of community of a boarding school.

The school began its first year with approximately forty pupils about half of whom were full-time boarders. It has steadily grown and developed over the past fifty years and now boasts a modern campus and educates well over 450 students from all over North County Dublin and a wide range of countries from all over the world. The Primary & Intermediate Section of the school accepts boys and girls from the age of five.

Our Secondary School contains over 300 students and is recognised for grant purposes by the Department for Education. Approximately 30% of our students are from an international background.

FACILITIES

The centre-piece of the school consists of a large Georgian House with a modern block of 20 classrooms extending from the side and reaching back into the main body of the school. We have over 40 classrooms, including a large library and resource centre and study area.

The library contains over 14,000 books and a bank of modern computers to supplement the considerable research facilities in this building. It is staffed by a highly experienced librarian and is always supervised.

Students can access this facility throughout the day. We also offer an extended option for evening study that goes on until 8:30 pm every evening. All students are invited to take part in evening prep – this lasts until 4:45 pm.

We have a fully equipped Art room and Design Centre with a network of 20 computers all carrying the latest CAD/CAM software. Our well-equipped science laboratories contain interactive whiteboards and we have 2 dedicated ICT rooms, newly furnished with the latest computers.

The computer suites are open to all subject departments and can be booked out on a regular basis. In addition, we employ Ipads and Tablets as part of our day to day curriculum in all divisions of the School.

Our Sports facilities are also impressive. We have a full size all weather hockey pitch and another large, multipurpose sports field for athletics and a variety of winter sports. We also have basketball and badminton courts and a large gymnasium /assembly Hall. Most of our school productions take place in this hall.
