Rostrevor College is a school built on the ethos and spirituality of Edmund Rice.
It offers a valuable, ethical perspective that students can carry with them into adulthood.
In 1802, Edmund Rice commenced his first school
for boys in Waterford, Ireland. Joined by men who
became known as the Christian Brothers, Edmund
extended his mission providing education to poor
youth throughout Ireland and beyond.
All schools in the Edmund Rice tradition have a
charter with four key pillars. These are Liberating
Education, Gospel Spirituality, Inclusive Community
and Justice and Solidarity.
At Rostrevor College we prepare boys to receive the
sacraments and make links with our local parish of
St Joseph’s Tranmere. Students are involved in
outreach programs that link with those who are
marginalized in our own community. As a school
community we pray together and, in the words of
Edmund, allow students to be men for others.
