Principal’s Message

Priory Integrated College is a wonderful school. It is a privilege to lead this inclusive community and I am very proud of the exceptional achievements of our young people.


Priory Integrated College is a community which seeks to provide education at its best. We are determined to draw out and develop the aptitudes and talents of all our pupils. We treat each pupil as an individual and get to know them so we can support their interests and passions, develop them on their learning journey and support them in becoming resilient and confident young people who are community focused and globally minded.


Our integrated ethos permeates all that we do and we welcome young people from all backgrounds. We seek to promote parity of esteem between all pupils and we celebrate difference in all its manifestations. Together (the word on our College crest) reflects our belief that we are stronger being an active part of the Priory family and together we achieve.


In Priory Integrated College we have high expectations. Excellence for All embodies our ethos and we expect each pupil to succeed academically, commensurate with ability and to always have a positive attitude to learning. Manners and good behaviour matter here and we seek to prepare our young people with the etiquette necessary to participate in all aspects of society and excel on their learning pathway.


Priory Integrated College is sector leading in terms of its use of ICT. We are the only school in Northern Ireland to be an Apple Distinguished School, meaning we have been officially recognised by Apple for innovation, leadership and educational excellence.


Our young people excel and I am very proud of the amazing achievements of all our learners. Our Key Stage 4 and 5 results are extremely impressive and are consistently above the Northern Ireland average for all – ability schools. We delight in the success of our pupils graduating from leading universities and securing sector leading jobs and we celebrate our pupils going onto further education and entering the world of work.


In addition to subject learning, we place great emphasis on developing pupils’ soft skills such as their ability to lead and collaborate, solve problems and have a voice. Our outstanding and proactive pastoral care underpins all that we do and is synthesised with our focus on pupil progress.


Our aim is that our pupils leave Priory Integrated College as well rounded, caring, kind and affable young people with a zest for life and learning.


We will believe in your child and will help them reach their full potential.


If you wish to know more about us, including the opportunities for development outside of the classroom, please have a read of the website and when the time comes, attend our open events and see our ethos and warm spirit in action.
