As Principal of Gort Community School, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website; I hope you find it informative and worthwhile. I would also encourage you to check out our Facebook, Instagram and twitter accounts.

For the first time in school history, our school has an enrolment of over 800 pupils. We will have over 900 pupils by 2021.  We have recently been awarded a major extension worth in the region of 4.4 million euros for our school. This will have a footprint of over 1400m². This will be a fantastic addition for our staff, students and the community.

Our Senior Management team aim to maintain the extremely high standards of Gort Community School, and to ensure that the students under our care continue to reach their full potential.

In Gort Community School, we aim to provide a comprehensive post-primary education open to all the community. The school is a Christian community which endeavours to be a happy and caring place, striving to develop the academic, aesthetic, spiritual, physical and moral potential of each student. We believe in a rounded education whereby students are taught life-long skills.

We are very proud of our high academic record and all our past pupils’ achievements and accomplishments.

Our 2019 Leaving Certificate results were of a very high standard, and I wish all our past pupils the very best in the next step of their journey. I would also like to extend my thanks to our teaching staff for nurturing the students during their time in Gort Community School.

I believe it is important to have a balanced education.  We strive for high results and have high expectations of our students, but we also value the benefits of being involved in sport and extracurricular activities.

Our Motto “Ní neart go cur le chéile” really captures what is at the heart of Gort Community School, strength in a common purpose.  Gort Community School is about being a team, being part of the community, working together, having common goals and striving to achieve the best possible education for each and every student that comes through our doors.

I look forward to working with all of our stakeholders in the years ahead, striving for high standards in our school and building for the future.

Yours in Education,

Brian Crossan
