The vision of Presentation College, Currylea is to give an all-embracing, well-balanced Christian education to each individual student and to ensure that a caring ethos permeates all activities in the school.
We endeavour to create a stable environment which will allow students to develop morally, emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually, giving them a love for learning, developing self-esteem and confidence and preparing them for life.
The Presentation Congregation was founded in 1775 in Cork and arrived in Tuam in 1835. They were the first order of women religious to come to the Archdiocese after the suppression of Monasteries and Convents. Almost immediately, the Sisters opened Schools.
Secondary schooling began in 1852 and boarders were taken in 1890. In 1972 the School was moved to the present building and the Boarding school closed in 1991. Today, we run a non-selective day school and are now under the trusteeship of CEIST.
