As the first Principal of Carrickfergus Academy, it is with a great sense of pride that I welcome you to our new school.

I hope that through our new website you will be able to get a sense of the vibrant, exciting new community which is Carrickfergus Academy – a community based on strong partnerships involving students, parents, staff, governors and the wider community and rooted in the core values of respect, opportunity and support. Most of all however, a community that reflects the sense of belonging and sense of spirit that will encapsulate daily life in our school.

We would encourage you to keep up-to-date with arrangements and additional information in the run up to our official opening in September 2018 by checking both the website and our Facebook page. You are also welcome to arrange to visit the school, or should you wish to meet with me, please contact either the Senior or Junior Campus to arrange an appointment.
