Committed to fulfilling our vision of the provision of excellence for our students in all we do


Nurturing Growth in Every Student.

At Midleton College, we celebrate a proud tradition that spans over three centuries. Established in 1696 through the charitable endowment of Lady Elizabeth Villiers, our boarding and day school has become synonymous with academic distinction and personal growth.

Academic Achievement with a Heart

We’re more than a place of learning; we’re a community that fosters the full potential of each individual. Our history of high academic achievement goes hand in hand with a compassionate and holistic approach to education. We believe in nourishing not only the intellectual minds but also the spiritual and personal development of our students.

A Close-Knit Community of 450 Bright Minds

With approximately 450 pupils, Midleton College is large enough to provide diverse opportunities yet small enough to ensure personal attention. Our size allows us carefully to nurture each student, creating a warm, inclusive community where everyone can thrive.

A Rich Tapestry of Faith and Diversity

While we honour our origins by prioritising children from Church of Ireland families, we wholeheartedly embrace and welcome those from other faith traditions. Our community reflects the rich diversity of Irish society today, and we invite applications from all who align with our Church of Ireland ethos.

Join Us in Our Journey of Excellence

Midleton College is more than a school; it’s a place where young minds are inspired, characters are shaped, and futures are forged. We invite you to explore our vibrant community, where tradition meets innovation, and excellence is not just pursued but lived.

Experience Midleton College. Embrace the legacy. Shape the future.



Midleton College was founded in 1696 by Elizabeth Villiers
