The South Abbey School Uniform

We love our smart school uniform (below). The uniform consists of a grey trousers, white buttoned shirt, navy v-neck jumper and tie (gold and navy stripes). On P.E. days the students wear the school tracksuit bottoms and top (navy with gold piping) with a white polo neck shirt. All items belonging to the uniform are available from WM Nevilles, Youghal. If you are unsure of which day P.E. is on please contact your teacher through the Aladdin app.

Inspiration

We have high aspirations for every child and an expectation that they will achieve their potential. We provide an inspirational and creative curriculum, rich in opportunity and full of challenge.  An example of this is our regular visits to our local links to do gardening. Have a look at some of the many things we get up to. 

Individuality

We understand that every child is precious. An individual blessed with their own unique set of gifts and talents and we work hard to encourage and support each child as they discover where their strengths lie. We do this through a high teacher to student ratio. Meet our team. 

Inclusion

We pride ourselves on our happy, friendly and caring atmosphere, as well as our strong christian ethos, which underpins all that we do. We endeavour to help all our children develop their full potential through working together and celebrating difference. One way we achieve this is through assembly. Why not find out more here.
