Welcome to the Scoil Mhuire Website

The aim of Scoil Mhuire is to be a Christian community of learning, having a Catholic ethos while also accommodating the beliefs and traditions of others. Newtownforbes is situated approximately 3 miles from Longford on the Sligo road. It is a very picturesque village, the population of which has grown significantly over the past number of years. It grew up around the estate of the Forbes family who came to live here in the 19th century.

Originally, a one-roomed school was built in 1961, which catered for the education of boys from 2nd to 6th class. In 1969, a four-roomed pre-fabricated structure was erected following the amalgamation of some local two-teacher schools. A new 3-teacher school was erected in 1981 to replace this pre-fabricated school. Extensions were added to this in 1993, 2007 and 2015. The school engages in many extra-curricular activities. The pupils are encouraged to take part in football, hurling, soccer, athletics and swimmingcompetitions and have been awarded County titles for both boys and girls.

We pride ourselves in keeping our school environment to a very high standard. We have received five Green flag Awards to date. The classrooms are very pleasant, well decorated and very well maintained. The school prides itself in providing excellent education for its students while promoting a philosophy of mutual respect for all.
