Our Motto

Creating Opportunities Realising Potential Developing Individuals

Mr. Victor Coert

Principal’s Welcome

It is my pleasure to introduce Kilkeel High School to you. Situated between the picturesque locations of the Mourne Mountains and the ocean, our school has a proud history of having a Christian ethos and being academically, non-selective.

Our provision of academic and vocational subjects, aided by our partnerships with the Southern Regional College and St Louis Grammar School means that our pupils have a broad range of subjects from which to choose both at KS4 and KS5, allowing for varied educational pathways for pupils of all-abilities and from all backgrounds.

The wide-range of extra-curricular activities offered, coupled with 43 musicals over the years, is evidence that we seek to educate the whole-person and encourage all pupils to meet their individual potential - whether within the classroom, on the sports field or through the arts.

Should you wish to find out more about our school or request a visit, please do not hesitate to contact us.
