Limavady High School Overview
Limavady High School is a controlled, co-educational school which offers a comprehensive education to all children living in Limavady town and the wider Roe Valley area.
The catchment area extends from Coleraine to Derry/Londonderry and beyond. The school is staffed to deal efficiently with all ability levels ranging from those who are potential A Level candidates to those who require special help in the basic subjects.
The school has an expertly staffed Special Needs provision.
Opened in 1961, the school is situated on Irish Green Street, near the town centre . Our premises have either been completely refurbished or replaced and now provide some of the most modern and best equipped teaching areas in any school in N. Ireland. In September 2001 the former Dungiven High School was absorbed into Limavady High School.
The governors of the school are particularly proud and supportive of our well developed pastoral system; its main purpose is to help and support young people as they mature. We encourage high standards of discipline and personal behaviour. The school also prides itself in its academic record, community involvement and sporting achievements.
Limavady High School provides a full range of learning activities and has adjusted well to meet the rapid changes which are taking place in education. Our prospectus is designed to help inform parents of many of these developing areas.
The governors and teachers of the school believe that success in education relies heavily on a good working relationship between parents and the school and between teachers and pupils. They are committed to ensuring that what pupils learn should prepare them for lifetime learning, and the world of work and leisure.
