Positive Behaviour for Learning & Student Support 

Our Positive Behaviour for Learning Policy reflects the Christian values, beliefs and morals of the college, underpinned by the College Vision. Its outworking creates an environment conducive to effective learning and develops social responsibility and values in our students. Form Tutors, assisted by Year Heads, offer each student daily guidance, encouraging them to make good choices and become more confident, independent learners. College rules are agreed by all stakeholders and encourage students to take responsibility for their appearance, behaviour, learning and progress.

Our well-developed programme for Personal Development and Preventative Education prepares our students to meet the challenges of modern life. Lessons, workshops and assemblies enhance our students’ understanding of life issues.

The mental and emotional well-being of our students is paramount. Our College enlists the support of a Professional Counselling Service to assist our young people to develop towards a more concise and definitive awareness of self.  Students are regularly reminded in assemblies how to access the counsellor.

We believe in educating for life in a very real sense and we see Road Safety as a skill for survival. Clear expectations for safe travel to and from college are explained regularly during assemblies; reinforced by speakers from Translink, EA and PSNI.
