Drimnagh Castle Secondary School.

Drimnagh Castle Secondary School is a Christian Brothers secondary school located on the Long Mile Road in the suburb of Drimnagh, Dublin. The school buildings are situated directly beside the old Norman castle from which the school takes its name.

Meánscoil Iognáid Rís, Drimnagh Castle operates within the context of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST) Charter. The legacy of Edmund Rice, founder of the Christian Brothers, challenges our school to be inclusive and to be especially mindful of the disadvantaged. It challenges our school to focus on the importance of a values-based, Christian education in the Catholic tradition. The school embraces the vision of promoting in its pupils full personal and social development in a caring Christian community of learning and teaching. It subscribes to a holistic vision of education which is expressed in the following five key principles:

Our 5 Key Principles

  • Nurturing faith, Christian spirituality, and Gospel-based values
  • Promoting partnership
  • Excelling in teaching and learning
  • Creating a caring school community
  • Inspiring transformational leadership
