School History


Founded by the Religious Sisters of Charity, St. Philomena’s Primary School, Ravenswell, has been educating the children of Bray and the surrounding areas for over 100 years. Established in the late 1800’s, the present structures were built in 1958 and extended in 1978. Countless numbers of children received their first level of education in Ravenswell. Whilst the Religious Sisters of Charity are still involved in the school as trustees, the school has been headed by lay Principal Emer Breen since September 2002.

We are delighted to be moving to our new building in November 2017 and to begin an exciting new chapter in our school’s history.
