St Brendan’s to Woodbrook College
Woodbrook College, formerly St. Brendan’s, is a voluntary Co-ed secondary school. It was founded by the Irish Christian Brothers in 1956 but is now managed by a Board of Management and along with all the other Christian Brothers Schools (CBS), is part of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST).
The main object of the Trust is to ensure and foster the advancement of education and to further the aims and purposes of Catholic education in the Edmund Rice tradition. The educational approach in Woodbrook College, mirrors that of all the schools in the trust, and can be expressed in the following five key elements:
• Nurturing faith, Christian spirituality, and Gospel-based values
• Promoting Partnership
• Excelling in teaching and learning
• Creating a caring school community
• Inspiring transformational leadership
