Glenstal Abbey School is a seven-day boarding, six-day teaching secondary school for boys, administered by the Benedictine monks of Glenstal Abbey.
The school aims to help all pupils achieve their fullest potential in academic and extra-curricular fields at each stage of their development. In our teaching we aim to help, stimulate, and challenge each student, and this aim is supported by careful monitoring and regular reporting.
The curriculum provided is balanced, broad and diverse. Scholarship and academic depth are its central features.
A high priority is placed on communication with parents. There is a programme of regular reporting and staff are available to meet with parents on request. There is also a parent-teacher meeting for every year group each year.
The Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate curricula of the Irish Department of Education and Skills are followed. All students sit the Junior Certificate at the end of 3rd Year. Transition Year is compulsory in 4th Year. All students sit the Leaving Certificate at the end of 6th Year.
