Bandonbridge N.S. is located on a stretch of the old West Cork Railway on the outskirts of Bandon town. It transferred to this location in 1960 where it has grown from a small 2 teacher school to its present size- 7 mainstream classrooms. The school serves a large catchment area covering the Bandon Union and the Moviddy Union of parishes.
Bandonbridge is a community where all pupils are respected – irrespective of sex, social background, family circumstances, educational achievement, physical characteristics or intellectual functioning. Pupils experience a sense of caring and belonging, they are treated fairly and their spiritual, moral and religious development is encouraged, as is their intellectual, social and academic development.
In recent years the school has been able to put this inclusive ethos into practice welcoming children and parents from many different nationalities.
Former pupils live all over the world and have been very successful, the most famous of whom is Graham Norton, who was a pupil for a time.
