Our Staff

St Nessan’s is very lucky to have a dedicated team of people who work hard to make our school a place of learning in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and where our 700 plus pupils, their parents and other members of the community can feel comfortable at all times.

The school has four Junior and Senior Infant classes and three classes at all other levels, and we have a large teaching staff consisting of Class Teachers, Special Education Teachers and Language Support Teachers, as well as an Administrative Principal and Deputy Principal. This teaching staff is complemented by a team of Special Needs Assistants and our Ancillary Staff.

Here is our team for the school year 2024 – 2025:
