Principal’s statement

As a past pupil of Antrim Grammar School I feel privileged and honoured to have been given the opportunity to return to my “alma mater” as Principal.  Through the outstanding work of my predecessors as Principal and the school staff, Antrim Grammar School has quickly become established as one of the most academically successful schools in Northern Ireland, a reputation we intend to build upon in the years to come.

It seems, to me anyway, quite a long time since my appointment and I am delighted that the waiting is over and that I have now taken up post at what remains a critical time for education in Northern Ireland.  In the weeks and months ahead, I look forward to the opportunity to meet with all those associated with our school – pupils, parents, staff, governors, past pupils and members of our local community – so that we can work together to further enhance the standing in our Province of what we all know to be an excellent school.

Mr. S. Black



Values and Aims:

One of our three core values, in Antrim Grammar School, is “Developing the Whole Person: Valuing Individuals”. This core value expresses not only an equal entitlement for all pupils accepted into the school but it also articulates an aspiration to care for and nurture all of our pupils, to become the fully rounded adults of tomorrow. Education is about more than passing examinations; and examinations will not be satisfactorily undertaken if young people are unhappy or unhealthy. Achievement and general well-being are bound up together. This core value also implies that healthy home-school links are also essential for the progress of each pupil. Antrim Grammar School seeks to cherish each young person who comes to join this friendly and caring school community, and it cherishes positive links with each young person’s home.


Key People and Systems:

Pastoral Care and Discipline in the school are run by a Vice Principal, under the auspices of the Principal and the Board of Governors. A team of Year Tutors forms the most important group of pastoral personnel in terms of the day-to-day care and supervision of pupils; there are two Year Tutors assigned to each Year Group and they move with the same group of pupils through their five years of compulsory education. A Sixth Form Team carries on this work for those who remain in school for their A-Level studies. Each morning, Class Tutors register pupils and often provide the first contact for pupils with staff during the school day. This extensive and very experienced Pastoral Team is supported by a school Care Team and various external agencies.


Child Protection:

The Child Protection Officer for the school is the Vice Principal, Mr B. Gingles. The Deputy Designated Teacher is Mrs. L. Crockett. The school operates its Child Protection procedures according to the protocols laid down by the Department of Education and the N.E.E.L.B.
