A School Connected to its Community

Community Collaboration

It is our vision for the future that Saintfield High School becomes even more community focused, as it continues to serve the village and wider area. Our staff and pupils are fully committed to involvement in community activity, and it is our hope that we continue to strengthen links with a range of outside and neighbouring agencies, businesses, organisations, and local people.

At Saintfield High School, we believe the answer to real education and school transformation is strong, authentic community connections and actions. We take great pride in our reputation as a school at the heart of our community, with an open, welcoming atmosphere.

We host community activity days and variety concerts which are open to every young person in the community.
In 2019, we are excited about the opportunities of collaborating with the new Saintfield Community Centre to provide a comprehensive and varied programme of
activities available to the wider area in the future.

Cultural Awareness and Fundraising

During the school year fundraising is organised regularly, with many local and national charities receiving significant donations as a result of our pupils’ hard work and the generosity of parents and carers and of the wider community.

The pastoral philosophies which underpin our school community promote, encourage and foster the development of empathy and understanding.

Our work in supporting charities exemplifies this commitment to others.
For the academic year 2019-2020, all of this activity and effort resulted in an impressive £1706.25 being raised and donated to worthy causes.

Through these activities, our learning community finds that by giving, there is a great deal to be gained.
