Aims & Ethos

We are an integrated co-educational all-ability College.  We emphasise the importance of intellectual development and academic excellence, and at the same time seek to develop the personal and social development of the individual child.We are committed to the Statement of Principles for Integrated Education which includes:‘…the integrated school provides a learning environment where children and young people from catholic and protestant backgrounds, as well as those of other faiths and none, can learn with, from and about each other.  The promotion of equality and good relations extends to everyone in the school and to their families regardless of their religious, cultural or social background.  Integrated education is value-driven and child-centred.  It is delivered through a holistic approach with an emphasis on developing every aspect of a child’s or young person’s potential.

In particular, we are committed to:

  • The pursuit of the highest academic standards in a supportive, challenging environment

  • The development of pupils’ personal, moral and spiritual growth in an atmosphere which promotes knowledge, understanding, respect and appreciation of their common culture, as well as the two major traditions in Northern Ireland.

  • Ensuring that pupils gain knowledge, skills and awareness necessary for living in a changing world.

  • Promoting a happy, caring learning environment centred on the needs of the child.

  • An open school culture in which professional collaboration is at a premium.
