Protect and Grow

ERST Pupils
We are Ireland’s largest and oldest independent network of schools. ERST comprises nearly 100 primary and secondary schools, working every day to inspire and motivate more than 37,000 pupils from a huge diversity of backgrounds, cultures and communities.

We want to continue to be able to guarantee the quality services, playing field facilities and mutual benefits that define and shape this unique network. Securing the resources to do this – particularly as our network grows and develops to meet the needs of our growing young population – is a constant challenge. As an independent Trust we receive no State funding.

With your generous support we can:

  • Protect our unique heritage.
  • Safeguard our valued independence.
  • Plan for the innovative future of our schools and students.
