St. Aidan’s CBS was established in 1964 by the Christian brothers as a boys’ Voluntary Secondary School. St. Aidan’s is one of the ninety eight schools under the leadership of the Edmund Rice School Trust ERST. The ethos and philosophy is based on the vision of Edmund Rice. It endeavours to develop the physical, emotional, intellectual, aesthetic, moral and religious aspects of its students.
Our mission is to give students, in an atmosphere of mutual care and respect, an appreciation of life as well as skills and knowledge necessary to achieve their full potential in accordance with Christian values. As well as striving for high academic standards the school has an excellent profile of extracurricular activities and is well known for its achievements in both.
