Limavady Grammar School is a school with a long and proud history for academic and extra-curricular success, as well as being noted for its integrated approach to education.

In focusing on our vision for the next decade, we are committed to three areas of development:

  • Learning. A school is judged by the effectiveness of its learning that goes on. It is the reason for its existence and the main criterion on which it is judged.
  • Caring for self and others. We have a strong pastoral system which is constantly under review.
  • Preparing for life, for success and happiness in school and beyond. Our emphasis on Career Planning ensures that the great majority of our students go on to achieve success.

Success in these areas will be achieved by careful planning in school, but also by the development and maintenance of links with the home. To this end we send out a monthly news-sheet titled, 'Headlines' which gives news of school and asks for views of parents and students. We have parents' evenings to which all parents are invited, and these are very well attended. Parents are invited to contact the school should there be any problem, and all staff will be pleased to assist.

Parents are welcome at school functions and sporting fixtures and have the opportunity to join the very active Parents' Association or to participate in its activities.

Our Mission Statement is 'Learning, Caring, Preparing for life'


It is the aim of Limavady Grammar School:

  1. To develop the full potential of each pupil by stimulating curiosity, by encouraging clear an logical thought processes, and by promoting a sense of personal achievement and enjoyment in the pursuit of academic excellence through the challenge of problems of a practical and intellectual nature.
  2. To help pupils to acquire self-discipline in a wide range of knowledge and skills, enabling them to gain qualifications relevant to further education, employment and adult life in a rapidly changing world.
  3. To help pupils communicate by the imaginative and effective use of language, written and spoken, and of information in numerical and graphical form; to inculcate a discriminating and critical approach to the printed word and the output of the communication media.
  4. To create a caring society within the school community in which staff and pupils learn to live and work together in mutual respect; and in which the personal problems of individual pupils will receive a sympathetic and understanding hearing.
  5. To create awareness, and to actively develop an understanding, of the different cultures in our society, and to encourage tolerance of other races, religions and ways of life.
  6. To help pupils understand world political, social and economic affairs, to take an objective view of local and world issues and to encourage a respect for the total environment in which they live.
  7. To help pupils, through their studies, to achieve aesthetic appreciation of human achievements in the arts and sciences, and to encourage exploration of their own personal creativity.
  8. To help pupils to appreciate the importance of planned physical and intellectual pursuits outside the classroom, and thus to prepare them for adult life in which there will be increased leisure time.

In Summary...

The school aims to enable pupils:

  • to develop their full potential in acquiring, skills and qualifications relevant to the adult world
  • to learn respect for others and for the religious and moral values of different cultures; to take an objective view of local and world issues
  • to respect the environment
  • to appreciate human achievements in the arts and sciences
  • to explore their own personal creativity
  • and to recognise the importance of planned physical and intellectual pursuits outside the formal curriculum.

Pastoral Care

Each year group is under the general supervision of a Head of Year, and each form within the year has a Form Teacher who is responsible for the individual welfare and academic progress of each pupil. Two experienced teachers act as school counsellors and are available at all times to discuss pupils' problems in confidence.

Discipline Policy

The excellent relationships which exist between teachers and pupils, both in and out of the classroom, are conducive to learning and to the social and personal development of pupils so that each has a growing sense of responsibility to self, to the school and to society. Good communication between parents and the school has helped the creation of a well-ordered atmosphere in which pupils may develop their talents to the full.

While the standards of behaviour and attitudes to study of the vast majority of pupils are good, there are occasions on which rules are broken or school work is unsatisfactory. There are well-defined procedures for dealing with such behavioural and academic problems and these are made known to both pupils and parents.

School policy, including the Rules and Regulations of the school, has been established by the Board of Governors within the guidelines set by the Western Education and Library Board.

In order to ensure that the school offers its pupils more than an academic experience, we offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities. We believe that such activities broaden the experience of pupils and offer opportunities to develop interests which may be lifelong.

Aside from sporting activities, the range of extra-curricular activities is as extensive as possible within limits of staff/pupil interest.

Groups meet during lunch-time or after school where a longer period is needed and pupils are available. Members of teaching staff organise and oversee activities according to their areas of interest and in a reasonable staff-pupil ratio.

The list below shows the extensive range of activities on offer at Limavady Grammar School. Many pupils go on to achieve inter-provincial and international honours in their sports.

Outdoor pursuits such as climbing, canoeing, camping and orienteering provide a unique challenge to young people in an environment different from the normal school one. We are currently the only school in Northern Ireland to have a full colour orienteering map of the school grounds.

There are regular trips to France or Austria for skiing and to England, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland for outdoor pursuits and orienteering. We have visited the republic of Ireland and South Africa for rugby. There are hockey trips and French and German exchange visits.
