Welcome from the Principal

Written by

Welcome

Introducing Drumragh Integrated College

A warm welcome to Drumragh Integrated College. We are intensely proud of our school and are keen to share with you the reasons why. Whilst our pleasant building is a strong facility for learning, in fact it is the students, staff, activities, achievements and attitudes that make this such an excellent college.

This is a place of real learning, not just passing exams, where staff and students work together. Young people of all abilities, all nationalities and all religious traditions are not only welcome here, but they enrich the successful college that Drumragh has already become. We offer a quality learning experience for those with gifts and talents, those with special needs and indeed provide ‘excellence for everyone’.

An impressive number of students at Drumragh have achieved the top grades at both GCSE and A-level. We are proud that universities across the UK and Ireland are available for those with the ability and commitment to reach for those goals. We also celebrate the achievement of all grades where they represent a ‘personal best’ for that student. As an integrated college we value those who are academic and, equally, those whose greatest talents are more practical, athletic or creative.

Integration means respecting yourself and others, even when they have different beliefs from yours. We have high standards, asking that everyone works and learns to their full potential, helps those around them to do their best too, and develops into a thoughtful, caring member of her or his community.

Drumragh Integrated College is a happy college. It is also growing from strength to strength. If you would like to visit us, ask any questions or to have more information, please feel free to get in touch.

 

Mr N. Frith (Principal)                         Mr I. Booth (Chairman B.O.G)

Feedback

Feedback

In February 2008, the Northern Ireland Education Inspectorate carried out a successful inspection at Drumragh Integrated College. Their report includes the following strengths:

  • Strong, caring and supportive ethos,
  • High standards attained by the students, especially at GCSE level, Support of parents and governors, and links with agencies in the local and wider community,
  • The dedicated, committed approach of all the staff to the education and well-being of the students,
  • The quality of leadership of the Principal, and both his commitment to and vision for the college.

The report also notes that parents praised the caring ethos of the college, the committed, approachable teachers and the effectiveness and professionalism of the Principal.

Students talked about the excellent relationships they enjoy with their teachers and the secure, inclusive atmosphere. They showed that they know what to do if they have any worries about their well-being.

The report states that students are motivated to do well in their work, and that the college’s strong GCSE performance is well above the Northern Ireland average for non-selective schools.

Copies of the full Crown Copyright 2008 report are available on the Department of Education website, www.deni.gov.uk, or from the Inspection Services Branch, Department of Education, Rathgael House, 43 Balloo Road, Bangor, Co Down, BT19 7PR.  Click here  to obtain a copy of the report.

 

In addition to the positive feedback above, the college is also proud of the following achievements:

  • The Health-Promoting Schools Gold Award
  • The Eco-Schools Award, bronze level and climbing
  • The Excellence in Integrated Education Award – one of the first two schools in Northern Ireland to achieve this

Celebrating Success

Written by

Celebrating Success

We believe in recognising each student’s personal best and regularly recognise students’ achievements, including sporting endeavours, academic excellence, musical talents or commitment to improvement. We celebrate and reward achievement, success and contributions to the college community in a range of ways and at a variety of events throughout the college year.

  • Merit System

In KS3 we offer a merit reward system to encourage students to achieve their potential. Students receive merits in recognition of good work in or outside of the classroom. They can achieve certificates on a rising scale, starting with the bronze award, and these lead to reward trips such as ten-pin bowling or a visit to the cinema.

  • Celebration Assemblies

We believe in celebrating students’ success at regular opportunities throughout the year. Students can achieve certificates and rewards for a range of activities including excellent attendance, great work in subject areas or sporting achievements.

  • Assessment for Learning

Students’ work is regularly assessed using feedback that identifies strengths and successes as well as ways of improving further. The principles behind this approach recognise the need for encouragement as well as helping students to move forward constructively.

  • Celebration of Success Evening

This year as we recognised the achievements of our school community we were joined by Janet Gray, world champion water skier. Janet gave an inspirational address highlighting the importance of belief in one’s own ability to succeed even when confronted with challenged and difficulties.

Parental Partnership

Written by

Parental Partnership

Drumragh Integrated College encourages parents’ involvement at various levels of college life. Students learn and progress most effectively when they are supported by a strong home-college partnership.

All parents are strongly encouraged to play an active role in the Parents’ Council. The role of this group is wide and varied:

  • Organising social events for parents, students and the local community;
  • Fund-raising;
  • Discussing some of the college’s policies and practices;
  • Helping with extra-curricular activities;
  • Assisting with special occasions within the college;
  • Exploring ways of making students’ lives better.


The Parents’ Council meets approximately once a month to organise and discuss fund-raising events through the year. In addition the group raises questions and offers suggestions that may help students to enjoy their educational experiences further. The Principal usually attends the monthly meetings and this creates a forum for open and useful communication. The Parents’ Council has raised funds for a variety of causes including providing the college with a minibus, music technology and ICT equipment. All parents are welcome to attend and participate in the group’s activities.

Parents are encouraged to play an active role in their son’s or daughter’s education. Ten ways in which they can do this are by:


1. Seeing that their children attend the college fully and
punctually.
2. Taking an active interest in their children’s school work and
homework, including by checking the Student Planner regularly.
3. Using the Student Planner as a form of communication between home and college.
4. Ensuring that their children take care in their uniform and appearance.
5. Encouraging their children to show respect for parents, teachers
and other students.
6. Notifying the college promptly of reasons for all absences.
7. Contacting the college immediately with changes of contact information, especially telephone numbers.
8. Letting staff know of particular needs or difficulties their children are experiencing.
9. Regular attendance at college functions and parent-teacher consultation meetings.
10. Participating in college fund-raising initiatives and events.
