Mission Statement

Coláiste Chraobh Abhann is a co-educational, multi-denominational second level school which opened in 2003 and operates under the patronage of County Wicklow Vocational Education Committee.

'Our school is about the pursuit of educational excellence in a community where mutual respect prevails'

We aim to achieve this by:

    • to develop academically with the support of a high quality teaching service.
    • to develop physically, socially and personally by participating in a wide range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
    • to develop morally, spiritually and ethically through curricular and non-curricular means and from the example set by adults in the school.
    • to achieve their potential.
  • fostering a culture of respect, understanding and encouragement within all members of the school community
  • providing a well-maintained, safe and happy environment.
