Thank you for taking the time to visit our website which I hope you find to be informative. As Principal I believe that everything that is done in the College should involve and be for the benefit of the Pupils.
The College was established more than 50 years ago. In that time we have been at the forefront of educational change. We believe the ongoing success of the College is due to a range of factors including: an extensive and well resourced curriculum which meets the needs of a wide range of abilities in the 11 – 18 range, quality pastoral care, quality teachers and teaching, and a comprehensive range of extra curricular activities. A forward looking approach coupled with an attitude of continually seeking to improve provision is a hallmark which ensures high standards and high expectations from both staff and pupils.
The extensive international links – involving some eleven countries in curriculum initiatives, our commitment to the successful collaborative venture – the Carrickfergus Learning Community, our excellent results at GCSE – 66% of pupils gained 5+ A* – C grades and at GCE 100% of pupils gained 2+ A* – E grades – demonstrates our intention to be at the cutting edge of educational development for the benefit of our pupils and our community. Carrickfergus College is school constantly aiming for excellence. This website will give you some insight into college life, but do feel free to contact me here at the College for further information.
