Courtenay School

Our History

The Courtenay Boy’s School owes it’s name and origins to Sir William Courtenay, the Earl of Devon who established the school in 1706. The original school was built in a laneway between Maiden Street and the river Arra but in 1826 a three roomed dressed limestone building was built on the present school site. In the mid 1950’s a new five roomed building replaced the original structure, and in 1976 further expansion was necessary and another new wing was added.
