Message From Principal

Welcome to Arklow CBS website

Arklow CBS is an all boys Catholic school under the trusteeship of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST). This was set up by the Christian brother with the specific responsibility for their schools.

We encourage all our students to participate in as many activities as possible and we have introduced timetabled sport modules for all first year students to encourage their participation in team sports. We also offer ample opportunities for our students to take on Responsibility and Leadership roles within our school community.

Academically, we set high expectations and offer a broad curriculum to meet the needs of every student. We operate a student centred mixed ability class setup, where all students are offered the same curriculum in first year and in second year, student choose their optional subjects. Our target is to have more than 60% of our Leaving Certificate students going on to Third Level Colleges and to encourage this we have a number of third level scholarships available to our students. Our students can also avail of a number of Access schemes available in most third level institutions.

As a school, we endeavour to produce well rounded mature young men.
