Mission Statement

Holy Family Secondary School is a Catholic, girls-only, all-ability, diocesan day school, under the patronage of the Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin.  Our school provides an education based on the vision of Pierre Bienvenu Noailles, founder of the Holy Family Order.  In accordance with this vision, we promote the Christian virtues of faith, hope, love, gentleness, respect and tolerance, and we emphasise togetherness and family. 

Guided by these Christian virtues, and dedicated to the pursuit of excellence, it is our mission to provide a safe, caring, inclusive learning environment in which to foster the spiritual, intellectual, academic, aesthetic, physical, emotional and social development of each pupil so that she may fulfil her own unique potential and may leave our school with the capacity and the willingness to contribute to the building of a society characterised by these Christian virtues. 

It is also our mission to foster a strong, positive partnership with our parents, parish, past-pupils, and the wider community. 



"L’esprit de famille se résume tout entier dans ce mot: charité.”

(P.B. Noailles)

(The Holy Family spirit may be summarised in one word: love.)
