I am delighted that you are interested in finding out about our school community and hope, that through our website, we convey to you all that is important to us, all that we aspire towards, and all that it means to be a pupil at Saintfield High School.
Saintfield High School lies at the heart of Saintfield village. We have a long tradition of providing families within the region of Co Down with a high quality, caring education. Past pupils of Saintfield High School always speak so fondly of their school days spent with us, and with a real sense of pride in their many successes.

SHS Pupils Complete Annual Sponsored Read
Year 8 and 9 pupils at Saintfield High School have participated in a sponsored read organised by mental health charity Praxis Care for the third year running. The pupils were asked to read as many books as they could in order to raise funds for the local charity. This year, pupils managed to beat their previous totals, raising a whopping £1266.40!

Minister for Education, Mr John O’Dowd, visited our school on Wednesday 18th March. Mr O’Dowd was here to inspect the building work currently underway at the school, and to take part in an official ‘Bricklaying Ceremony’ for our new Sports Hall. During his visit, the minister praised the school, and recalled his previous visit to the school in 2012. Mr O’Dowd even remarked that the school’s presentation on that occasion had actually “helped to frame the Schools’ Enhancement Programme”.
As part of his visit, Mr O’Dowd was even quizzed by a pair of eager GCSE Journalism students. Aaron Milligan and Jake Cochrane posed the minister several questions, as part of their Unit 2 Controlled Assessment work. Jake told us that he “asked Mr O’Dowd about his own memories of sport at school, and he admitted to us that he had been useless at sport, no matter the shape of the ball! He was very friendly and chatty. I enjoyed meeting him.”
