Saint Brigid’s National School, is a primary school situated in the centre of Greystones, Co. Wicklow. Our mission is to provide the highest quality education for all our children in a happy, safe and stimulating Christian environment, focusing on their academic, social, personal, moral and spiritual development to help them be the best they can be.

Supporting Students with Exceptional Ability

The staff at St. Brigid’s School provide opportunities for all pupils including those who are exceptionally able in academic areas (i.e. the top 5% of the school population).

We also encourage pupils who show exceptional talent in non-academic areas e.g. sports, art, music & drama.

We encourage all our students to be exceptional. Our principal Mrs. Costello always encourages us to ‘be the best that we can be’. We believe that the brain is a muscle that can develop with exercise.

When students understand they can get smarter, they understand that effort makes them stronger. Then they put in extra time and effort, and that leads to higher achievement.
