About Us


Welcome to St. Anthony's School

Our New Extension


St. Anthony's School is a special needs school located in Humbert Way, Castlebar, Co. Mayo. We cater to primary (aged 4-12 years) and post-primary (aged 13-18) girls and boys who have mild general learning difficulties. Our aim is to provide a caring and nurturing learning environment that facilitates the development of each pupil's full educational potential.

At St. Anthony's School, we believe that every child has the potential to succeed and we are committed to helping our students achieve their goals. Our team of dedicated teachers and staff work together to create a supportive and inclusive learning environment where students can thrive.

St.Anthony's recognises that all pupils are individuals with personal gifts, strengths and needs, and we offer an individualised education to all pupils which is centred around their own personal Individual Educational Plan.

There is a large staff of dedicated Class Teachers, Special Needs Assistants and Specialist Teachers of Woodwork, Home Economics, Music and P.E. who all work alongside the Principal Teacher, School Nurse, School Chef, School Secretary and the School Caretaker.

The school is managed by a voluntary Board of Management with representatives from our Patron Western Care Association, the Teaching Staff, Parents and the local Community.

We offer a range of services to support our students, including individualized education plans, specialized classes, and access to therapy and other support services. Our goal is to ensure that each and every student has the tools and resources they need to succeed.
