ABOUT US

Glenlola Collegiate is a successful and dynamic grammar school for girls set in the heart of Bangor and serving all of the North Down community.  As a school we focus all our efforts on being child centred and we have high expectations for each and every one of the pupils in our care.

We believe that every girl has her own potential and our teachers and staff strive to help each individual to discover and develop these talents to the fullest extent.

We take immense pride in our grammar school environment which nurtures strong academic achievements and offers a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities tailored to meet the needs of our pupils.

At Glenlola Collegiate, we have a strong tradition of House Events which help to encourage participation across all age groups and nurture the positive values of the School.

We are proud to note that our pupils regularly outperform girls of the same ability in other schools in both GCSE and A-level examinations. This success is a result of the strong and supportive relationships which are fostered between pupils and staff, coupled with high expectations which form such an important part of the Glenlola Collegiate ethos.

As a caring, committed and professional staff, we are proud to be part of the Glenlola Collegiate community, sharing all that we know with our pupils, so that they can achieve their best.

Latest School News

“Two good tern parents deserve at least two chicks”

Two sixth form students from Glenlola Collegiate, Bangor and Royal Belfast Academical Institute have spent the summer helping the RSPB carry out research as part of a Nuffield Science Bursary project aimed to find out whether provisioning of chicks was sufficient to support a productive colony of common and arctic terns breeding on a small artificial island at Belfast Lough RSPB Nature Reserve. The students, supported by the RSPB education team, presented their Nuffield Science research at a celebratory event at Queen’s University Belfast recently.

GCSE Astronomy Weekend, Folk and Transport Museum, 19 – 21 October 2012

The UFTM hosted a different type of visitor when the Glenlola GCSE Astronomers spent a weekend there. Instead of looking around the historical buildings the Year 10 and 13 girls were definitely looking upwards!

On Tuesday 9 October we had a group of Swiss guests in to visit the school. The group came over from St Gallen which is celebrating 1400 years after St Gall left Bangor and headed through Europe, finally settling in Switzerland and founding the town of St Gallen which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
