And so it begins...

The New Senior Leadership team is pleased to announce that the construction of the new Changing Pavilion began today, by cutting down the trees at the playing fields.  It took a while to get started due to the recent bad weather; NIE were worried about the power lines along with the wind and the rain, (better safe than sorry).

Today helps cement the future of The High School Ballynahinch in the local community and across County Down, this new changing pavilion will enable all pupils at The High School and other surrounding schools use the best facilities available to enhance their sporting experience.

Mr Marks (vice principal) says that ‘this is a great day for all pupils in the Ballynahinch area, not only will we have a top of the range changing pavilion to use for the school, but this will be used for all other local community sporting organisations, football, rugby, hockey etc.  This shows that we are investing in the future of our young people, first it was with the new interactive whiteboards throughout the school, now it is to do with the sporting aspect of school and community life, next on our list is to get a new hall at the front of school started, which should be anytime soon.”

Major Investment for your child's learning

The High School Ballynahinch has a great future.

The school has undergone major renovations over the last 3 months with 8 refurbished classrooms, a new greenhouse for Horticulture Studies and a renovated foyer and reception area.


Pupils will also benefit from the thousands of pounds invested in interactive whiteboards for classrooms, with state of the art technology and hardware.

The new Senior Management at The High School Ballynahinch have been working hard in getting these renovations from SEELB and firmly believe that this school has an extremely bright future. This is supported by the fact that The High School Ballynahinch will be getting a new purpose built Changing Pavilion which will enhance the school's reputation as a centre for excellence in sport.

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the website of The High School Ballynahinch. 

We hope that you will find it informative and attractive.

Our website will give you detailed information about the school in general and also about current activities.

We are dedicated to the promotion of learning through high quality teaching in a caring, disciplined school environment as well as in the local and wider communities.

The needs of pupils are central to our school. We aim through a broad curriculum involving co-operation with local schools and other providers to offer an extensive portfolio of subjects suitable for a wide range of abilities.  Sport has an important role to play in helping pupils develop their many and diverse talents.

There is an excellent pastoral programme committed to ensuring that pupils feel valued. 

Through the pastoral system parents and pupils can call on assistance to deal promptly with any issues they may have.  The small size of the school and its semi-rural location contribute significantly to the success of the pastoral system.

The Staff and pupils are supported by a skilful Board of Governors who encourage the school to be a stimulating and high achieving organisation.

If you have any questions after using our website please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Mrs K. Moore
