Welcome to our website 
 
As Principal of Newtownhamilton High School, I thank you for viewing our popular school website, which I hope will give you a taste of the unique educational experience that we strive to offer pupils aged 11-16 in our small, but yet successful, country school. 
 
First and foremost, every child is an important child to our committed and caring staff and therefore pupils will be encouraged to develop Christian principles so that they can become mature, responsible, self-sufficient adults that will leave them equipped with the skills and values to support them for the rest of their lives. We take great pride in the fact that every pupil in our school is known individually by all our staff.  
 
 
Our curriculum (including our rich and diverse extra-curricular programme) is also designed to support this aim and allows each pupil to fulfil their maximum potential. This includes the provision of a much wider curriculum offered at Key Stage 4 which explores many different career paths and is delivered in partnership with other schools/colleges within the Newry & Mourne Area Learning Community. Furthermore, the recent EA (SELB) Area Based Plan Proposals acknowledge the development of these collaborative arrangements in South Armagh and therefore predict a bright and secure future. 
 
I believe that our smaller class sizes have contributed significantly to the high quality teaching and learning which is provided by our enthusiastic and dedicated staff. Our 2016 GCSE statistics once again prove that Newtownhamilton High School can compete with the very best non-selective schools in the province. 
 
Finally, I welcome feedback on all aspects of school life, no matter how trivial that it may seem; so if you are a current parent with a concern or query, then please contact me. Alternatively, prospective pupils and parents can also contact me.
