The History of Glenstal Abbey School
The word ‘Glenstal’ means ‘The Glen of the Stallion’, and is an English rendering of the Irish Gleann Stail. The glen itself is a very impressive geological feature, consisting of a mile-long valley, formed during the last ice-age, rich in many kinds of wild flowers.

We know it’s Lent, but we wanted to make sure our international boarders don’t miss out by having to remain in school during mid-term, so they got some treats today! #iloveboarding #GrowatGlenstal https://t.co/zYkZ4n230ARead More
It may be mid-term break, but our international boarders and some others are still with us. Our boarding team have lots in store for them for the week ahead. @BSAboarding @CISCSchools #iloveboarding #GrowatGlenstal #HomeawayfromHome https://t.co/aK1w9El3h4Read More
