New Beginnings...



Welcome to Dunclug College 


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.  The school has grown to 870 pupils, 160 of whom are Sixth Formers, with an expanding curriculum, that has responded to economic change and emerging technologies.

The school is a pleasure to lead:  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.  I hope you enjoy browsing our Website and better still, please come and visit us.

Dear Parents and Carers
In these unprecedented times, we know everyone is spending more time online at home, including our children and young people. The Internet provides many benefits in keeping us all connected; however, for our children and young people especially, this can present more significant risks.
The online world can be a bit overwhelming at times but it is important we understand what our children are doing online so we can help make them safer. The Department of Education Northern Ireland (DENI) Safer Schools App aims to help with this.
We are delighted to invite you download the DENI Safer Schools App provided in partnership with Ineqe Safeguarding Group.

                 Dunclug College New Build Gets the Go Ahead!

It is with great pleasure that Dunclug College announces that planning permission has been formally given for its new school:   a Design and Build Project which has been in preparation for the last four years, following Area Planning decisions in the Ballymena area.   The new school is to be situated at the top of the current school site, adjacent to the Cushendall Road and the exciting plans which have been on display in the school foyer, indicate a state-of-the-art facility which will enable the school to continue to provide the vibrant and rich curriculum which has yielded success for its cohort of 870 pupils.  It is anticipated that the school will decant into the completed new premises by the end of 2022, when the exterior programme of development of its outdoor facilities will get underway.  While we know the quality of our school life is primarily about the people – our students, teachers, support staff, Governors and parents – serving the local and wider community, and preparing our young people to meet the demands of the local and global economy, it is essential that accommodation and infra-structure supports its needs.  The pathway to progress has been fraught with many challenges, but this achievement is tribute to the commitment and resilience of all associated with the college, for which the Principal is profoundly grateful.  We look forward with excitement to the days and years ahead and to seeing the school continue to go from strength to strength in the outworking of its worthy aims.
