Christian Brothers Secondary School Wexford is a Catholic Voluntary school under the trusteeship of The Edmund Rice Schools Trust.The school follows the religious and educational philosophy of the Christian Brothers.
Blessed Edmund Rice founded the order in 1802. The first school in Wexford was opened on May 2nd 1849. The school was relocated to the present site in 1874, through the generosity of local businessman Richard Devereux. The school has continued to educate thousands of Wexford boys since then, celebrating its 150th anniversary in 1999.
In June 2008 the Edmund Rice Schools Trust assumed trusteeship of the school and the school continues to provide Catholic education in the Edmund Rice Tradition. Our school community comprises all students, parents/guardians, staff and trustees.
Christian Brothers Secondary School Wexford is known as Coláiste Éamonn Rís.
The school’s Mission Statement reads:
”Our school community exists primarily to develop responsible individuals who will participate fully in a changing society and to carry out this task in a Christian environment.”
