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.
