We cater for boys and girls between the ages of 3 and 11, girls only between 11 and 16 and both boys and girls in years 12 and 13. The school welcomes pupils of all denominations from throughout the world. St. Brigid's has Day, Weekly, and Full Boarding facilities (for Girls of 7 years of age and over only). See the Annual Report on our news letter page for academic results and the latest information.
The School was established in 1939, by the Congregation of St Brigid, at the invitation of the then Bishop of Menevia, and set up in premises in the Town. In 1943, they moved to the present premises, and the school became St Brigid's Convent School, catering for children from the age of 4 to 18. Over the years, it became a very successful Boarding School, with over 90 boarders and became known as Brigidine Convent High School, until 1990, when due to a lack of Vocations, the Congregation were concerned over the future of the school.
Great efforts by several people were able to persuade a former parent to purchase the property, and lease it to a newly-formed Trust, which ran and developed the school once more as St Brigid's School. The co-educational Junior School was reintroduced, and the school grew as an Independent Boarding School.
In 1994, the school applied for Grant-Maintained Status, which was approved in 1996, since when the school has become the first Maintained Boarding School in Wales. With changes introduced in 1999, by the Schools Standard and Framework Act, the School became a Voluntary-Aided School supported by Denbighshire Local Education Authority. Education is free, with fees for weekly or full boarding facilities. Pupils may also board overnight.
