Help us maintain excellence

How is the school funded?

We are funded by an annual budget allocation from the Department of Education which covers things like teachers’ salaries, heating and lighting costs and general maintenance – all of the essential costs involved in running a school.

Like every school in in Northern Ireland, this budget allocation comes under increased pressure year on year.

“We believe that an education is about far more than just the achievement of academic excellence.”

From the fantastic music and drama productions that we stage, to the invaluable charitable work the pupils undertake in our local community and the sports activities we offer, these are the things that we believe make the school what it is and produce rounded and accomplished young adults.

Parents

Increasing the percentage of parents who pay the Enrichment Fee will go a significant way to alleviating the financial pressures faced by the school.

Remember: The Dept. of Education DO NOT PAY for certain subjects, sport, co-curricular activities & careers support.
