Welcome to a Catholic Ethos school that is also sensitive to the beliefs of others.

Welcome to a school whose motivated, dedicated staff deliver a full inclusive  curriculum and many worthwhile initiatives.
Welcome to the school that is much more than the sum of its parts for extra-curricular activities.

Welcome to Rahan NS where we nurture our pupils on their first steps to becoming educated, independent, social, caring young adults.
