Welcome from our Principal

Welcome Friends,


My name is Niall Oliver and I am delighted to welcome you to our college website. As the new college Principal I look forward to working closely with our pupils, parents, staff and school community. Dunclug College, meaning ‘fort of the bell’ is at the heart of community life in the North of Ballymena, and caters for the wider town and district.  Our school has grown to 880 pupils, 140 of whom are Sixth Formers, with an expanding curriculum, that has responded to economic change and emerging technologies.


The collective aim of the staff is that our pupils will leave us confident that they are ready to take their places in society, secure in their strengths and with determination to overcome challenges.  Alongside the successes of their learning and the memorable events, we want them to take away lasting friendships and values which will stand the test of time. Enjoy browsing our website but better still, please come and visit us.
