School History

Our School Building is listed as a Preserved Building

St. Peter’s Girls’ N.S. opened in 1934. When the Sisters of Mercy acquired the site in 1930, they started planning for a new modern school to meet the needs of the 20th century. The school building was designed by Ralph Byrne and has been described by some as “perhaps the finest school building in Athlone.”

The original drawings dated 1933, were for a “proposed 2 storey, 7 bay school with 2 wings at the back.” The turret of the school is based on the design of the steeple of the old Priory of Saints Peter and Paul.

The school’s official name is “An Scoil Chluineach ar choimirce NN Peadar agus Pól” or “The Cluniac School in the protection of SS Peter and Paul”.
