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.
