Carrickfergus Academy

The Academy is a school where opportunity, fun and enjoyment for students and one where high achievement is the norm.  High quality relationships between students, and between staff and students, are a strong feature of life at our school.

The aim of our school is to provide all young people in its community the very best educational experience through a broad, balanced, modern curriculum with high quality learning and teaching at its core.
We will regularly track each pupil’s progress to ensure that we support the needs and attainment of all. Through the work of our dedicated team of Learning Mentors, Focus Centre and Nurture Classes, we will ensure each child is supported in achieving their full potential.

Working alongside this, we have a strong pastoral system based on positive relationships between pupils, staff and home that will help to support, nurture and care for your child’s wellbeing.

At the Academy, we will always strive to ensure that each pupil is encouraged, supported and cared for. In return we will expect high standards of work, conduct and appearance.

Personal development is a key aspect to the whole school experience at the Academy. We want all our pupils to become confident, considerate young people who are equipped to make their way in the world.

Through the wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer by our committed and talented staff, there is an opportunity for each pupil to further develop these skills and attributes essential to help your son or daughter fulfil their dreams and ambitions.

To our parents and guardians, we recognise that the transfer to post-primary school is a major milestone in a young person’s life and this website provides only a glimpse of school life and our community. I would encourage you to contact us should you require any additional information or arrange to visit our school.
