We continue to be a beacon for Catholic education through our nurturing, caring and inclusive ethos. Pupils of all abilities benefit from an educational experience which is inspired by the school’s motto ‘Fortis in Fide’ meaning ‘Strong in Faith’.

When considering which children should be selected for admission, the Board of Governors will only take into account information which is detailed on or attached to the Transfer Form. Parents should therefore ensure that all information pertaining to their child and relevant to the school’s admissions criteria is stated on the Transfer Form or attached to it including whether the child attends a contributory primary school and which parish they belong to.



Board of Governors reserves the right to require such supplementary evidence as it may determine to support or verify information on any Transfer Form. The provision of false or incorrect information or the failure to provide information within the deadlines set by the school can result in the withdrawal of a place and the inability to offer a place on the part of any school nominated on the applicant’s Transfer Form.



Key Stage 3 The school aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils. As a Catholic school, Religious Education is central to the pupil’s education and is a compulsory subject throughout all years. The other time-tabled subjects comply with the learning areas as laid down by the N.I. Curriculum.
