Welcome from Principal

Fáilte Róimh go léir go dtí Meánscoil na mBráithre Chríostaí, Roscomáin.  CBS Roscommon is a Catholic all-boys school under the trusteeship of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust. 

Since our foundation in 1937 Christian Brothers Secondary School Roscommon has been a forward thinking community, which provides the very best environment and atmosphere to foster excellence inside and outside the classroom. CBS Roscommon is part of the Edmund Rice family of schools, founded by the Christian Brothers and following the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice.

Our school has an excellent team of teaching and support staff. It also has a sense of duty and care for each other and for our students that is unique and which strives to ensure the best education and social outcomes for the students in our care. This website (some parts of which are still under construction) gives you a flavor of the richness and diversity of our school.



Autism Facility Will Open in CBS Roscommon in September 2014

CBS Roscommon will open its doors to an Autistic Unit. It will consist of a sensory room and classrooms which have all been specifically designed to meet the needs of pupils who find themselves in the Autistic Spectrum. Classes in the ASD unit are on an individual or small group basis and will target the specific needs of the pupils where individualised plans will be drawn up by professional and experienced members of staff.

Each student that attends our school is valued for their individual worth and here at CBS Roscommon. We ensure that a student with special needs is given every single opportunity to guarantee a successful and happy school life and we believe our autistic unit will be an added gateway through which students can achieve their very best

“As Principal of an Edmund Rice school, this is a fantastic and exciting time for CBS Roscommon, in keeping with the tradition and heritage of the Brothers, which is at the heart of Edmund Rice education.

An important element of the Edmund Rice charter is creating a caring school community. That implies fostering in the whole school community a sense of care and compassion, especially for those who are vulnerable or disadvantaged in any way. This is a wonderful opportunity for CBS Roscommon to become a campus of inclusion”.


Assessment is a key part of teaching and learning. In CBS Roscommon we strive to ensure that our students are assessed in such a way as to maximise their learning and their confidence. The changes outlined in the new Junior Cycle require new methods of instruction and assessment and CBS Roscommon is set to meet these new challenges.
