Welcome to the website of St.Paul's, Special School in Cork

St. Pauls School is a school for students with moderate, severe and profound general learning disabilities. We cater for boys and girls from age 4 – 18 years. The school is under the Patronage of the Bishop of the Diocese of Cork and Ross.

Under the trusteeship of COPE Foundation and funded primarily by the Department of Education and Skills, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum, tailored to each students individual needs.


A Happy School
The whole St. Paul’s school community endeavours to make the school a happy, enthusiastic and safe place in which the students can learn and develop to the very best of their ability.
Everything centres around the students and they, in turn, bring joy and inspiration to everyone around them.
