Saint Aidan’s was established in 1964 by the Christian brothers as a boy’s Voluntary Secondary School, catering for the age range 12 to 18 years. It serves the local areas that include Whitehall, Santry, Beaumont, Drumcondra and Ballymun. There are in excess of six hundred and fifty students attending the school.

Saint Aidan’s is one of the ninety eight schools under the leadership of the Edmund Rice School Trust ERST. The ethos and philosophy is based on the vision of Edmund Rice. It endeavours to develop the physical, emotional, intellectual, aesthetic, moral and religious aspects of its students.
The school is managed by the Board of Management comprised of representatives of the trustees, teachers and parents.

Our mission is to give students, in an atmosphere of mutual care and respect, an appreciation of life as well as skills and knowledge necessary to achieve their full potential in accordance with Christian values.As our 50th Anniversary is approaching we are looking forward to strengthening our ties with past pupils, indeed three of our past pupils are on the staff.

As well as striving for high academic standards the school has an excellent profile of extracurricular activities and is well known for its achievements in both. Saint Aidan’s has an optional Transition Year Programme offered to students who have completed their Junior Certificate.
We are also a recognised European Computer Driving Licence EDCL Training and Certification centre approved by the Irish Computer Society ICS.
