Our Principal


As Principal of The Abbey School, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website which I hope will provide you with a flavour of the many varied facets of life here in our school.

Here at The Abbey, we pride ourselves on the provision of a balanced holistic education where students of all academic abilities are helped to achieve their potential.  This is coupled with a broad extra-curricular programme that reaches out to the many varied interests off all our students.

Under the trusteeship of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST), the values of the Edmund Rice tradition are fully realised in our students, as they journey towards independence and finding their place in society as fully rounded young men.

The Abbey has at its core the provision of a happy, caring, welcoming, and respectful school community. We do this in partnership with our parents where we acknowledge the role of parents as the primary educators of their sons.
