The Abbey Christian Brothers' Grammar School is a voluntary day school for boys aged 11 – 18 years in Newry, County Down, Northern Ireland. A new £18 million site opened on the outskirts of Newry in 2010, moving the school from Courtenay Hill where it had been based since 1966. The school gives its name to many streets surrounding the former site such as Abbey Yard and Abbey Heights. During its history, the school had been located at several sites around Newry, including Chapel Street, Kilmorey Street, the Carstands at Margaret Street and the Mall, then on to Abbey Yard and Courtenay Hill.[1]
