A message from the Head Teacher

Children are at the heart of everything we do and everyone has a place in our community. Education improves and transforms lives and our priority is to help everyone achieve individual excellence and personal fulfillment. We want to inspire and support our students so that they can become confident and capable citizens. Ballakermeen has a ‘can do’ attitude and our young people are encouraged to develop a vital “sense of possibility” so necessary for success in life, whether that is academically, artistically, creatively, in sporting areas, or as an entrepreneur.

Students attend school to learn, but it is also where they will make friends. Learning does not take place exclusively in the classroom and there are lots of lunchtime and after school clubs for children to experience, as well as providing opportunities to meet new people. Visitors to the school always comment on the warm and friendly atmosphere – we consider ourselves a family, where everyone looks out for each other.
