At present there are 100 pupils on the school roll. There are six teachers on staff.

St. Finian’s aims to be a place where children will attain their full potential in an atmosphere of acceptance, security, respect and learning. We hope that each child will leave with a knowledge of their own worth and an appreciation of: the world around them, the rights of all pupils, and spiritual awareness. We hope that each child will have the skills to lead a fulfilled, creative and gainful life.

All members of our school community uphold our mission motto; “Respect, Learn, Grow Together”
