A very warm welcome to Carrickfergus Grammar School, a thriving, exciting, ambitious and thoroughly aspirational selective Controlled school.
Our main aim is to offer our children a world-class education, reinforced by the most robust research-based evidence into high-quality learning and teaching. The Carrickfergus Grammar ‘brand’ of learning and teaching is a brand which we firmly believe will ensure our pupils are exposed to high aspiration, high expectation and huge opportunities in order to surpass potential. No labels, no limits, is the mantra of this school.

'Prepare to Succeed'
We aim to offer our students a world-class education. We look nationally and internationally to identify and understand what the highest quality learning and teaching looks like. We base our developments on worldrenowned research. We send our staff overseas to see for themselves what outstanding practice looks like, and to explore how it can be translated into the classroom in Carrickfergus Grammar School.
