The origins of Limavady Grammar School can be traced back to a late nineteenth century foundation. In 1957, it was moved to the present site on the Ballyquin Road. A major extension took place in 1982 when new Science labs and a Sports Hall were built. A second extension comprising twenty-two classrooms including three Information Technology rooms is now completed. Recent additions to our accommodation include a multi-purpose gym and multi-sports sports pitch.
We have a highly qualified and motivated staff who seek to challenge and inspire our pupils to work hard, develop self-discipline and maximise their potential both inside and outside the classroom. Pastoral care is at the heart of the school. A pupil who is happy at school will achieve highly and in turn be well equipped to succeed in future life. The Pastoral Care system is based on form tutor and Year Heads, and pupils should always feel that they have someone to turn to if they have difficulties. This leads to a pleasant and relaxed community spirit where discipline problems are few. A clear reporting system has been developed and is constantly reviewed so that parents are regularly informed of progress and attitude. An experienced counselling team help pupils to overcome problems and build resilience.
Our achievements are well-known in the academic sphere as well as on the sporting field and in the area of the performing arts. Our GCSE and A-level successes have been widely recognised and these, coupled with expert careers guidance, have ensured that those leaving us are well-equipped for the world of work and of higher education.
We provide an extensive extra-curricular programme in music, drama, sport and creative arts to name but a few. This holistic approach to education contributes to the well-rounded young adults who leave our school ready to take on the challenges of adult life.
