Welcome to Sligo Grammar School’s website. The keystones to the school’s success include respect, trust, co-operation, participation, consultation, collaboration and teamwork. Our enthusiastic and dedicated staff place great emphasis on the holistic approach. Such efforts are channelled so that our pupils develop characteristics of being good, reliable citizens, fit to take their place in society. Together with a fine tradition of sport and community involvement, the school offers a wide range of activities to ensure the personal and social development of the whole child.
Sligo Grammar School aims to promote excellence in an inclusive and supportive community that reflects Christian values, where each member is enabled to achieve his/her full potential in life and in learning.

This year there are significant policy changes within the school
The changes reflect the seriousness with which we take our duty of care to our students. We ask for the support of all parents and guardians in this.
Forms 1 – 4: Students may only leave school when they have been “signed out” by a parent or guardian from the school foyer. At present phone calls, e-mails, or hand-written notes, some of which are retrospective, make the job of monitoring attendance and exeats both time-consuming and difficult to manage. Too many times students have been found to have left the premises without a note from parents being provided.. We appreciate the difficulty collecting a student may cause a parent, but please place this alongside the overall safety and welfare of our students. For boarders this would be a member of the boarding staff.
Forms 5 & 6: Students will require a note signed by parents/guardians forwarded to the Senior School Coordinator before the start of the school day. Heads of the boarding houses will operate in loco parentis
