Welcome to Limavady High School, an all ability 11-18 co-educational controlled post primary school, situated in the Roe Valley in the North West of County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. We are delighted that you are interested in finding out more about our school. By reading this information you can begin to develop a flavour of the exciting and challenging work that takes place within the school and also what it is like to be part of the LHS Family. As Principal, I believe that Limavady High School provides a first-class environment for all our pupils to excel and succeed.
We are a family school and are very proud of our Christian ethos and values. The school motto ‘Making Connections, Shaping Futures’ embodies everything we aim to achieve. We are an inclusive school, committed to excellence, challenging each individual to fulfil their potential both inside and outside of the classroom. The school aims to create a secure, caring, happy and healthy environment with high expectations, enabling all pupils to grow not only academically but socially, spiritually and personally. Such growth will be nurtured through the promotion of the school’s core values and pupils will be empowered to work hard and be kind.
At the heart of Limavady High School lies the Christian belief that each individual is unique and valuable. Our mission is to provide a secure, caring, happy and challenging learning environment in which all individuals are encouraged to respect others and develop to their maximum potential as members of the school and wider community.
Limavady High School has a very proud tradition of being a Child Centred school developing the whole child to become a confident, articulate and effective contributor to the local and wider community. To help us achieve this, we believe in the power of creating positive relationships with our pupils.
Our well established pastoral system is based on this firm belief and principle which enables us to get the best from our pupils. We, as a school, recognise the uniqueness of each pupil and their success is directly linked to the positive working partnerships that we have between staff, pupils and parents. With the help and support of these key stakeholders and the wider community, we are confident that all our pupils will be able to meet the challenges of the twenty first century with confidence.
In addition to the website, the school's prospectus and social media platforms will provide you with a wealth of information about the school, our curricular offer and the excellent opportunities that are open to every pupil who is part of the LHS family.
