St Joseph`s Convent Grammar School

Tel. 02887 761227

The school is situated on the former Lyle estate on the outskirts of Donaghmore village.  There are 500 pupils from a wide catchment area ranging from Dunamore in the north to Benburb in the south and from Carrickmore to Portadown.  The majority are from the immediate area, and from Dungannon, Coalisland and the " low country." There are 32 full time and 3 part-time teachers, all but two teaching their specialist subjects.  In addition, we have one French assistante.  Sister Mary Brogan, is our counsellor and mentor.

The newly extended  school canteen provides hot lunch on a cash cafeteria basis. Those paying do so one week in advance.  Those children who choose to bring a pack lunch have a provided facility to eat same.


Pupils range in age from 11-18 years. We do not accept children who require specialist or remedial teaching, which we cannot provide.  Some parents make a provisional booking up to one year ahead, some on open night.  This is recommended in the light of capacity limits on all schools.  It is provisional on the school’s acceptance.  Others we first meet at the night for new pupils in June, when children come with their parents or guardians to meet their form teacher, be allocated their classes, receive the student guidelines and uniform list.  Parents are welcome to stay with First Year pupils on the first day if they so wish.

Policy on Choice

It is school policy to facilitate the children's choice outside the core curriculum and, at A-level, as far as possible within teacher and number constraint.  They are asked to choose from the option list.  In the event of a subject being requested over and above the usual option by a reasonable number of girls, every effort is made to accommodate them.  The careers teacher offers ongoing guidance and specific direction as required by the individual pupil and her parents/guardian.

" Travel in the younger sort is a part of education;
 In the elder a part of experience".

As part of their wider education language students visit France and the Gaeltacht regularly. The Geography French and Spanish departments have accepted an invitation from SELB to participate in the Comenius project. In this area, their focus will be on Tyrone Crystal.
A ski trip takes place every other year organised by the P.E. department. The school brings choirs to Scotland; and those music students with SELB have opportunity to visit mainland Europe with orchestra and band. In addition visits are arranged to theatre, ballet, concert, media, museum and gallery events besides places of historical, archeological and contemporary interest and value.
