Headmaster's Welcome

A warm welcome to St David’s Marist Preparatory School 

Seldom does one experience the rich educational atmosphere that prevails at St David's. The richness of the educational experience at St David's Preparatory School is manifested through a balanced programme where boys are encouraged to apply themselves to each task and to involve themselves in the diverse curricular and extra-curricular programme. As a Marist School, St David's is firmly aligned with the tenets of Marist education as espoused by our founder Saint Marcellin Champagnat. They are:

  • Presence
  • Love of Work
  • In the Way of Mary
  • Family Spirit
  • Simplicity

From the moment one arrives on the campus a sense of warmth and sincerity is experienced. Be it through an encounter with one of our boys, a staff member or simply by taking in the traditional architecture of the buildings, a feeling of belonging will be added to your experience of our school. This is a happy place, one of learning where a strong emphasis is placed on excellence in the classroom, excellence outside the classroom and importantly on the quality of inter-personal relationships. We seek to lay the foundation that will enable each of our boys to develop into fine young men. Men that are self-assured, self-reliant, courteous and prepared to make a meaningful contribution to society.

Boys at St David's encounter teaching of the highest standard with both traditional and modern approaches informing curriculum delivery. We pride ourselves in utilising classroom strategies that are best suited to teaching boys and enhancing their learning needs.

The pages of this website will provide an insight into the life and vibrancy that is St David's. In addition, I invite you to visit us and experience the positive atmosphere of a truly special school.
