Looking to and planning for... the future. Message from the Principal
Welcome to our website where you will get a flavour of what we do in St. Colman’s College, Fermoy. Year on year, our students continue to excel in State Examinations continuing a tradition of excellence in education stretching back over 150 years. We are again very proud of the fact that St. Colman’s has been ranked very highly in the 2015 ‘Sunday Times Top 400 Schools in Ireland’. St. Colman’s is ranked seventh in Ireland in non fee-paying second level schools and fourth in the Cork region. At St. Colman’s College, we continue to be guided by our Mission Statement in maintaining the commitment to develop and nurture every boy in their academic pursuits and their personal development.   During their time here, the boys will have opportunities to develop their skills, set high standards for themselves, grow in confidence, attain academic results beyond their expectations, be ambitious, make confident career decisions, act independently and face challenges with honesty and courage. When students leave the College they will follow past Colmanites as well rounded young men with independent minds who respect the differences of others. They will possess a true sense of self worth and justice, being able to speak for themselves and for purposes greater than themselves. We follow in the footsteps of many people who have cultivated the rich and proud traditions of academic and sporting achievements that St. Colman's is best known for since 1858. We are very much aware of the historical significance of being the custodians of this great College and very much aware of the importance of continuing these achievements. As Principal and Deputy Principal we have been entrusted with guiding the education of future Colmanites and of continuing the tradition of producing high calibre students ready to take their place in the world. We do our utmost to continue the excellence in education that St. Colman's has become renowned for. This website introduces you to our school and its many opportunities but it is well worth a visit too, either at an Open Day or on an individual tour. There is so much to see and plenty to talk about but the most important thing of all is to come and get a sense of the place, its staff and its pupils to see  how they feel about their lives as part of the St. Colman’s “family” community here.
