Welcome to Sligo Grammar School

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 channeled 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.

Our Mission Statement

Welcome to our First Year Students!

 

Sligo Grammar School would like to welcome all the first year students who will be joining us at the end of August. Under normal circumstances we would have had a chance to meet everyone at our annual Induction Day, but as this year we couldn’t do that, we have instead put together a video to introduce the school and welcome you all to our SGS Family!  Watch it below. 

Follow the instructions in the video below to access your school Microsoft  365 account. This is important as it will be used by your teachers to share documents, send information and conduct on-line classes. 

Now, meet your Mentors in the video below. These are the TY students who will help you find your way around the school in your first weeks at SGS.
