School Restart

Welcome to Limavady Grammar

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of Limavady Grammar School. Our school is child centred with a unique ethos where each child is valued, supported and encouraged to develop their talents. Academic achievement and extra-curricular success are central to school life; we have a happy atmosphere with a strong community spirit. Our aim is to focus on “Learning, Caring and Preparing for Life”, which ably equips our students to succeed in their chosen career path. I trust you will find the website informative and that it will give you a flavour of life in Limavady Grammar School.

With Deepest Sympathy

We were deeply saddened to learn of the death of former member of staff, Mrs Virginia (Ginny) Aitken. Mrs Aitken joined LGS as an outstanding Head of English in 1991 until 1999, and fostered a love of English language and literature in all those who had the privilege of knowing her. She instilled a passion for drama in many pupils, and created a wealth of memories for those involved in her school productions. Our deepest sympathies go to her children and the wider family circle at this time.

Our Vision

In focusing on our vision for the next decade, we are committed to three areas of development:

  • Learning

  • Caring

    We aim to treat each pupil as an individual and to help them develop self-respect and respect for others.

  • Preparing

    We focus on preparing our students for successful careers through a highly effective careers guidance programme.
