Designed by Eric Patton, it features a view of the original school building. Drawing its pupils primarily, although not exclusively from the Waterford region, the school now boasts a co-educational and multi-denominational student population of 370, while still retaining its’ Quaker values of respect for the individual, of developing broad experiences and of building a sense of co-operation rather than confrontation. It has a wide and varied curriclum and is also part of the "Stellar Ireland" project.
