As Principal of Ransboro National School,I would like to extend a warm welcome to you to our school and to our school website.  Our school is a vertical, co-educational school catering for boys and girls from Junior Infants to 6th class. We have a very vibrant school and our wonderful team of dedicated staff work together to create an inclusive and successful learning environment where everyone feels happy, safe, respected and valued.

We promote a positive culture in our school and the values of kindness and respect are at the heart of everything we do. 

In partnership with our pupils, parents, the Board of Management and the Parent’s Association, we strive to provide each child in our care with a rich educational experience and to help every child to reach their full potential.  

I hope that you will find this website useful and informative and the staff and I look forward to sharing your child’s educational journey with you.

Yours sincerely,

Siobhán Buckley.
