Welcome to North Coast Integrated College
North Coast Integrated College is different because we believe that staff, parents and pupils working together in an environment of mutual respect that celebrates diversity works better for everyone. Integrated education is not just about “accepting everyone”; integrated education is about celebrating our differences and building an ethos of tolerance and respect. The young adults in our school are preparing to live and work in a multicultural diverse society. I believe that there is no better way to prepare for this than allowing pupils to learn about and from each other every day.
In 2014 the Education and Training Inspectorate (ETI) called North Coast Integrated College a ‘good’ school. In 2018 the College is even better! In the most recent ETI inspection in April of this year, it was noted that North Coast Integrated College delivers on results, ‘the pupils attain well at five or more GCSES, or equivalent, at grades A* - C.’ This trend continues in sixth form, as the inspection report says, ‘At post -16, the proportion of pupils attaining three or more GCE A Level, or equivalent, at grades A*-C has doubled in the last three years and is well above the NI average…..’
North Coast Integrated College has the advantage of offering families the opportunity for everyone to complete all of their potential secondary education journey under one roof. This is just one of the many reasons why North Coast Integrated College is the perfect post primary choice. Pupils have the opportunity to study the more traditional GCSE and A level subjects and also vocational work related subjects such as Sport, Construction, Hairdressing and even Animal Care through caring for the animals in North Coast Integrated College Farm.
Our mission statement "Successfully Educating Children Together" is at the very core of all that we do here at North Coast Integrated College.
Building a Bright New Future
On 23 March 2016, North Coast Integrated College was given permission to advance to planning stage for new buildings under the Fresh Start Agreement.
North Coast Integrated College is entering an exciting phase of growth when we will be able to plan for a new school building; we are very much looking to the future and are delighted that we have the opportunity to plan for state of the art facilities to allow our pupils the very best opportunity. It is a privilege to be leading the school it the next stage of its growth.
