The Abbey CBS (commonly known as The Abbey) is a Christian Brothers Secondary School in the town of Tipperary, South Tipperary, Ireland. The Abbey is an all-boys school and has about 400 students at the moment. In recent years the school has been extended twice.
The first extension is known as the "Edmund Rice Wing" and contains an area for student lockers as well as a state-of-the-art Construction Studies room, Woodwork room and Technology laboratory. The second extension was the complete renovation of an old stable which is now called the "Mary Rice Centre" which houses an area for all aspects of special needs, learning support and one-to-one education to accommodate everyone at Abbey CBS. The Special Needs department is very well structured at the school with the vast majority of special needs students receiving one-to-one education and attention by qualified staff.
Famous quotes containing the word abbey:
“The Abbey always reminds me of that old toast, Above lofty timbers, the walls around are bare, echoing to our laughter, as though the dead were there.”
—Garrett Fort (19001945)
