Welcome to Dunluce

Welcome to the website of Dunluce School, a co-educational, all-ability post-primary school set in extensive and attractive grounds on the edge of the historic town of Bushmills, with a splendid view of the rolling landscape of the River Bush.  Established in 1974 from the town’s old Grammar School, it is now a modern, progressive school that caters for both boys and girls of all levels of ability aged between 11-16 years.

If you are considering a post-primary school for your child, you will, no doubt, want a school which is safe, well-ordered,high achieving, caring in its ethos, well resourced, and most especially, a school which is able to provide an appropriate, stimulating and high quality educational experience which your child will truly enjoy.

At the heart of the school’s ethos lies the premise that intelligence and ability are not fixed qualities and that pupils’ endeavour, supported by the expertise and high expectations of their teachers, can enable them to achieve that which they did not think possible.

Philip Smyth - PrincipalWe believe that each pupil, regardless of ability, is of equal value and deserves equal opportunity.  We therefore strive to attain excellence in all of our pupils and excellence in all that we do.

I trust that our website will reflect these aspirations and give you a flavour of the enjoyment that pupils and teachers share in the activities, experiences and achievements of Dunluce School.

Philip Smyth (Principal)
