Principal’s Welcome

Hello and welcome to St Killian’s College, Garron Tower,
Students and Parents I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting the college’s website and I hope that you find the experience enlightening.

The website is designed to allow you to access information about the college but also to give you a flavour of our inclusive, supportive and happy community, where all are welcomed regardless of their ability and background. Everyone at the college works to ensure that all of the students’ experience is enjoyable and for them to be challenged, nurtured and respected.

Our best advocates are our students, both past and present. They will assure you that our College is happy, safe, secure and productive school where everyone is valued, where expectations are high and where every child can and does achieve.

Pastoral care provision is excellent with our students at the centre of everything that we do. This informs our wide and relevant curriculum both in terms of academic and extra-curricular provision. St Killian’s is a progressive school which provides the best non-selective education for all of the local children in our catchment areas of the Glens and East Antrim. We are lucky that we are served by outstanding primary schools who enjoy an excellent relationship with St Killian’s and who work closely with us to ensure that the move from Primary to St Killian’s is not only enjoyable but successful as possible.

In St Killian‚Äôs we are committed to the education of the whole child. We will endeavour to inspire our pupils as they move through their complex formative years to ensure they receive the attitudes and values which will turn them into fulfilled members of the workforce, their community and society in general. Our high quality Learning and Teaching, our Pastoral Care, our sense of community and belonging and the expertise of staff in identifying and developing each child‚Äôs talents, ensures that St Killian‚Äôs College enjoys a very positive reputation within ‚Äėeducation‚Äô and the community in general.

In St Killian’s we endeavour to provide a pathway which lasts for seven years because increasingly, our pupils want to remain with us through to the end of their formal schooling and we want to keep them. While we enjoy getting the best out of our high fliers, we also get great satisfaction out of working with our high triers and we are renowned for getting each pupil to work to the very best of their ability.

I really hope you enjoy visiting the different pages of our website, and you enjoy interacting with our rich media content. This website offers only a snapshot into a college that has many dimensions, offers so much during and after school to our pupils and is a dynamic learning community.
