In 1974 it was decided that City Quay Boys School and Townsend St. Girls School should amalgamate. A new school was constructed in the site of the old Boys School, which was originally built in the late 19th century. This project was co-funded by the Department of Education and The Mercy Sisters. The school, as we know it today, opened its doors on September 1st 1977. Today the school continues to be a vibrant place where local and international pupils are welcomed and valued.
