Welcome to our new website!

Lorraine MynesDCW was founded in 1870 as a boarding and day school and has educated many generations  of young women in Wicklow. It is a school rich in tradition and talents, handed down to us through the dedication and vision of our predecessors in Dominican education and continue to inspire us today.

Dominican College is a Catholic voluntary Secondary School under the Trusteeship of Le Cheile and run by the Board of Management.. We are inclusive in our intake, comprehensive in our curriculum, encouraging Respect, Mutual Understanding, Peace, Tolerance, Forgiveness and Reconciliation

It is a privilege and a pleasure to have been appointed Principal of Dominican College Wicklow.

Thank you for your warm welcome. When I arrived, I was and still am struck by the calm, warm, friendly atmosphere in the school among the students and the staff and the fact that no student is anonymous here.

The Dominican motto “Finding truth through the education of the whole person” is an integral educational philosophy in our school. Dominican College continuously strives for improvement in academic excellence for every student.

We have a superb, dedicated, enthusiastic teaching team where the focus is always on the holistic development of every student to reach to their potential. There are a large number of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities in which all students are encouraged to participate. Student Leadership and Student Voice are very important in the daily life of the school.

We work in very close partnership with parents in order to help students to realise their potential and enjoy their experience as a student in Dominican College, Wicklow. We hope you enjoy looking at our website. Please follow us on twitter @DCWschool
