Welcome to the Gortnor Abbey website. We are a Christian Co-educational Secondary School based in Crossmolina Co. Mayo. In keeping with the Jesus and Mary Ethos, we are committed to the holistic development of each individual in our community by empowering each person to grow in justice, honesty, respect and loyalty to self, family, school and community. We aim to help all students to achieve full potential at their studies and do that by providing an atmosphere where religious belief, a sense of responsibility, self- confidence, self-esteem and self-identity are developed. We promote an appreciation of Heritage, Culture and the Environment through encouraging participation in all facets of school life – spiritual, academic, sporting, social and cultural.
