Gaelcholáiste Charraig Uí Leighin

Gaelcholáiste Charraig Uí Leighin is a community of learning excellence in an all-Irish speaking environment, which supports and challenges each pupil to reach their potential, and is underpinned by core values of respect, fairness and integrity.

The school’s three core principles of respect, fairness and integrity are central to daily life in the Gaelcholáiste, where hard-work and positive behaviour are encouraged in an all-Irish setting.

It is the aim of Gaelcholáiste Charraig Uí leighin to be a pioneering school, where we embrace the newest technologies, to support teaching, learning and management of the school. We have high expectations of our pupils, and we challenge them on a daily basis both within and outside of the classroom to maximise their potential.
