Roe Valley Learning Community
Limavady High School is an integral part of the Roe Valley Learning Community, (RVLC). This partnership of schools in the area has a long-standing and enviable reputation as the longest established and most effective Learning Community in the province.
In terms of Post-Primary schools, the RVLC is made up of Limavady High School, Limavady Grammar School, St. Mary’s School, St. Patrick’s College, Dungiven, the North West Regional College and Rossmar Special School; Gaelcholáiste Dhoire.
Our students benefit from RVLC in the following ways;
The breadth of Curriculum Choice at Key Stage 4 is hugely increased. In the RVLC students now have access to a range of courses which already meets the Department of Education’s Entitlement Framework requirements.
At AS and A2 Level, our students have access to a wide range of applied and general subjects; this is possible because of joint planning of timetable organisation so that the schools share all four A-Level Option Blocks. Students from other schools come into the our school for some subjects and our students may study some of their courses in campuses other than their own.
Some of our classes have had opportunity to work with groups from Rossmar Special School, a rich and mutually beneficial educational experience.
Many of our extra-curricular opportunities are shared with pupils from other schools; examples include Art trips, theatre visits, citizenship discussions, health education talks, dance performances, Youth Football and Interact Club, to name but a few. Limavady Grammar School and St Mary’s pupils who study Arts subjects here have had leading roles in our biennial school show, while our musicians and singers have taken part in St Mary’s shows.
