Welcome to Glastry College
For over fifty years we have been educating young people from the Ards Peninsula irrespective of background or academic ability, and we are renowned for our warm welcoming atmosphere. We have developed into a college which now provides an education for students from Year 8 to Year 14 with many going on to further education at university.
Glastry College provides an effective and enjoyable learning environment for our students and we also play a very central role in supporting the local community. We enjoy a flourishing reputation where the success of the college has been built upon the positive partnership that exists between students, parents, staff, Board of Governors and other schools in the North Down and Ards Learning Community.
The college aims to provide a safe, caring and creative environment in which education can be enjoyed and students are given every opportunity to achieve their potential. In addition to promoting academic achievement, we also provide opportunities for our students to develop the personal, physical, social and spiritual aspects of their personality. This development is supported by a diverse range of extra curricular and travel opportunities in which we encourage our students to participate.
We vigorously promote a caring college ethos and we hope, as you visit the college, you see this in action.
