Abbey Christian Brothers' Grammar School Vision & Values

The Abbey Christian Brothers’ Grammar School / Scoil na Mainistreach Iúr Cinn Trá is a voluntary school for boys aged 11 – 18 years in Newry, County Down, Northern Ireland.

The Abbey Christian Brothers’ Grammar School is a valued member of the Edmund Rice Family which has as its origin the story of Edmund Rice – husband, father, widower, Religious Founder of two congregations – The Christian Brothers and Presentation Brothers – and lover of people especially those on the margins of society.

The Abbey is dedicated to the constant enhancement and promotion of his spirit of service, mindful that the student is our raison d’être. The Christian Brothers first came to Newry in 1851 and the school derives its name from the celebrated Cistercian Abbey founded on the same site by St. Malachy in 1144. Since then the school has had several different locations in Newry, each making a positive impact on the local community. The Christian community of staff, students and parents aspire to produce pupils whose academic, physical, cultural, social and in particular spiritual potential is realised as fully as possible.

Promoting full personal and social development in caring Christian communities of learning and teaching.
