As Acting Principal of Limavady High School I am delighted to be able to welcome you to our new website and can I thank you for your interest in our school. When pupils become part of our school community in Year 8 they embark upon a potential seven year journey, building on their knowledge and skills to prepare them for all the challenges they will face in the 21st century. I hope you find the website informative and as you browse through the content you will gain an insight into our school and its priorities.
Limavady High School is a non- selective, all ability school creating an environment where all children are provided with the platform to aim high and believe in their ability and talent. We firmly believe that each pupil should be provided with the highest standards of education available.
The school motto "Making Connections, Shaping Futures" embodies everything that we aim to achieve. We are an inclusive school, providing a challenging learning environment with high expectations enabling all pupils to realise and fulfil their true potential academically, socially, spiritually and personally. We work tirelessly to ensure that our pupils are empowered and encouraged to work hard.
Limavady High School has a very proud tradition of being a Child Centred school developing the whole individual to become a confident, articulate and effective contributor to the local and wider community. The school continuously strives to provide secure, supportive and caring learning experiences for each pupil, which is led by a very strong Pastoral Team of Heads of Years, Form Tutors, Learning Support Teacher and our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator.
The school has been at the forefront of education policy when it comes to Shared Education - one of the key priorities for the Northern Ireland Assembly. This programme promotes respect and understanding whilst retaining our own ethos and provides opportunities to study a wider curriculum at Key Stage Four at our partner schools. For this reason the school is now moving into exciting times with a new multi million pound shared Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and 6th Form centre to be built in the near future.
We, as a school, recognise the uniqueness of each pupil and that the success of our pupils is directly linked to the working partnership that we have between staff, pupils and parents. With the help and support of these key stakeholders and the wider community, we can continue to build on the success of our school, one that we are very proud of.
