Principal's Welcome


Welcome to Castlederg High School – a school with an established culture of success at the heart of the local community. It is a happy school that young people love to attend and that offers a great educational experience. With a child-centred approach, based on the values of respect, kindness, responsibility, and willingness to learn, we are committed to supporting each young person to achieve personal excellence, thus empowering them towards their best possible future.

We pride ourselves on meeting the needs of each young person and challenging them to be the best they can be within a warm, supportive, caring environment based on the sound Christian values that underpin our strong pastoral ethos.  Good relationships, at the heart of our school, create a highly positive climate for learning in which our young people gain confidence and flourish as they progress on their educational journey within a school community that recognises the importance of pupil voice.

Our exceptionally dedicated teaching and support staff are committed to providing each student with the very best opportunities to learn and gain the qualifications, skills and dispositions necessary to make a meaningful contribution as successful, responsible citizens in our 21st century society. Each young person is appropriately supported and challenged in achieving this important life goal with a particular focus on identifying and developing their individual talents.

Accordingly, we offer a wide range of academic, vocational and extra-curricular subjects tailored to meet individual interests and need through a broad and balanced curriculum both in the classroom and beyond. This is a school where the achievements of all our young people matter, are celebrated and lead to the best possible examination outcomes and career prospects.

As such, Castlederg High School, holds a strong reputation as a high performing post-primary school that is a school of choice for young people of all abilities in our catchment of West Tyrone and North Fermanagh. Working together in partnership with parents and carers - whose support we value greatly - every possible step is taken to ensure a successful transition for each new student as they too become part of our Castlederg High School family.


This website, our on-line prospectus and Facebook page will offer you further insight into the rich educational experience that is enjoyed by our current students as we pursue our ambitious vision for them by ‘Inspiring Excellence, Empowering Futures – Together.’


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like more information or to discuss how we could meet the needs of your child, as a prospective student, and support them also on a journey towards their greatest possible educational achievement.


With Every Best Wish for the Future


Mrs Sandra Cashel
