Welcome to our School!

Welcome to the new St. Mary’s BNS website. Our new website has lots of information and it links to our school Twitter page so hopefully you can find information quickly and easily and keep up-to-date with what’s happening at St. Mary’s BNS.

St. Mary’s BNS is a large suburban school situated on the edge of Maynooth town centre. The school caters for pupils at all class levels, from junior infants to 6th class and has an enrolment of close to 600 pupils. The school building is currently being redeveloped – a new 3-storey, 24-classroom school is being built on the site of the old school playground. It is hoped that it will be completed soon and ready for the beginning of the 2022/2023 school year at the latest. Part of the redevelopment involves the addition of a special needs unit, Croí na Coille, which will cater for boys with autism. The new building will be state-of-the-art and we are looking forward to the move with great excitement.

There is a warm, welcoming atmosphere in the school and we value and respect all members of the school community. Our primary focus is on our pupils and we aim to provide each child with a broad and holistic child-centred education that is fun, active and engaging. We value each pupil’s individuality and personality and take great care to nurture and develop their strengths and talents during their time at the school; everyone is welcome and everyone can succeed at St. Mary’s BNS, Maynooth.

Thank you for visiting our website and please let us know if there is any information that you could not find so that we can continue to improve the site.
