The school has a long history of cultural, academic, sporting, musical, artistic and pastoral excellence. The school, founded by the Presentation Sisters, is managed by a Board of Management, consisting of Trustee, Staff and Parent nominees. It has an open enrolement; admission is non-selective with a mixed ability intake and a wide range of academic and practical subjects.
The school offers all programs at Senior Cycle, Transition Year, Leaving Certificate, Leaving Certificate Vocational and Leaving Certificate Applied.
The school is proud of its holistic and professional approach to education which is rooted in a caring atmosphere. The voluntary aspect of caring is taken seriously. The school extends into the community. Parents of students are encouraged to take an active part in the life of the school.
Teachers find St. Brigid's a very pleasant environment in which to work. Professional development is nurtured and teachers who wish to extend their role beyond the classroom are given every encouragement and opportunity to do so.
The Parents' Council meets regularly and provides a vital link between school and home. The Student Council meets fortnightly.
While the majority of students are Catholic, the school is open to students of other nationalities and religious traditions. The Intercultural Club has students of many cultures.
