Principal's Welcome

Welcome to St Killian’s College, Garron Tower,

Parents and students, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting the college’s new and updated website.

The website is designed to allow you to access information about the College but also to give you a flavour of our inclusive, supportive and happy community, where all are welcomed regardless of their ability and background. Everyone at the College works to ensure that all of the students’ experience are enjoyable and for them to be challenged, nurtured and respected.

Our best advocates are our students, both past and present. They will assure you that St Killian’s is a happy, safe, secure and productive school where everyone is valued, where expectations are high and where every child can and does achieve.

Pastoral Care provision is excellent with our students at the centre of everything that we do. This informs our wide and relevant curriculum both in terms of academic and extra-curricular provision. St Killian’s is a progressive school which provides the best non-selective education for all of the local children in our catchment areas of the Glens and East Antrim. We are lucky that we are served by outstanding primary schools who we enjoy an excellent relationship with and who work closely with us to ensure that the transition from primary to St Killian’s is not only enjoyable but successful.

At St Killian’s we are committed to the education of the whole child. We will strive to inspire our students to develop the attitudes and values which will turn them into fulfilled and productive members of their community and society. Our high quality Learning and Teaching, our Pastoral Care, our sense of community and belonging and the expertise of staff in identifying and developing each child's talents, ensures that St Killian’s College enjoys an excellent reputation within 'education' and the community in general.

I really hope you enjoy visiting the different pages of our website and interacting with our rich media content. This website offers only a snapshot into the life of our college; that has many dimensions, offers so much during and after school to our pupils and is a dynamic learning community where every pupil is valued.

Mr. Jonathan Brady
