Welcome to Strabane Grammar School

Strabane Grammar School is a controlled co-educational and non-denominational grammar school. Situated just outside Strabane, it nestles in 23 acres of very attractive wooded grounds. A relatively small school, where everyone is known, it caters most effectively for the needs of pupils aged 11 to 19 from all social and religious backgrounds.

This website is designed to give you some insight into the life and work of Strabane Grammar School. I trust that you will find it informative and interesting. Many of the strengths of the school will be evident to you as you read it, though it is more difficult to convey on paper the exceptionally warm and friendly relationship which pervades the whole school community.

Our aim is to serve the social, personal and academic needs of each individual within a partnership of pupils, staff and parents. Your child will enjoy the benefits of a disciplined, happy environment, conductive to study under the guidance and instruction of a well-qualified, committed and successful staff. The school has for long had a reputation for academic prowess but care is taken not to neglect the equally important pastoral dimension. We want pupils of Strabane Grammar School to be successful but just as importantly we want them to be happy.

I hope that this site will provide you with sufficient information to stimulate your interest in the school. Please feel free to contact the school directly for any individual information required on policies or organisational arrangements.

Yours Sincerely,

L.J. Lacey
