Scoil Mhuire is a Catholic school under the Patronage of the Catholic Bishop of Ferns. Scoil Mhuire is situated in the townsland of Ballinamona, Campile, Co. Wexford, on the New Ross – Campile road. It is a central school for the Parish of Sutton’s, which is divided into Horeswood and Ballykelly Curacies.
In 1979 four schools in the parish amalgamated into Scoil Mhuire. These four schools were Aclare NS, Ballykelly NS, Horeswood NS, and Killesk NS.
Scoil Mhuire has 11 mainstream teachers and four special education teachers. There are five SNA’s in the school. We have a cleaner, caretaker and secretary.
