About Us

Bennettsbridge N.S. is a Catholic School under the patronage of the local Catholic bishop. The Catholic ethos permeates the school day.

Our Mission & Vision

At Bennettsbridge National School we celebrate the uniqueness of the child as it is expressed in each child’s personality, intelligence and potential for development.
