St. Brendan's Community School

Our mission statement outlines our aim of creating a caring community of learning. A number of factors contribute to a good learning environment.

Our learning system

Respect is the foundation upon which a productive atmosphere is built. Self respect, respect for others and respect for property are the ground rules on which our code of conduct is based.

It is within this atmosphere of respect and care that worthwhile achievements are made.​

The Code of Behaviour and Discipline was drawn up by teachers, parents and Board of Managment to facilitate a positive learning environment. Details of our Code of Discipline and sanctions are outlined in each student’s homework journal. Where students fail to achieve their potential parents are informed immediately.

Parents have a vital role in encouraging study and in supporting students in their learning process. The school continually strives to encourage closer home school links, and contact between home and school is always welcome.

St. Brendan’s Community School offers each student an opportunity to become part of our community of learning and to contribute to the learning environment.
