Thank You David Meade!

A special ‘Thank You!’ to David Meade for officially kicking off our 35th Anniversary celebrations.
The entire school was enthralled, bamboozled and highly entertained for the whole afternoon!
And ‘Thank You’ also to Ulster Tatler for the great pictures – look out for lots more in a future edition!


Year 14 Visit University Open Days

As part of their Careers programme in school, all of our Year 14 students went to visit our two local universities at the end of last week.

On Thursday we went to the Ulster University campus, and on Friday it was the turn of Queen’s University Belfast in the morning and then on to Methody in the afternoon for their Higher Education Convention.

These Open Days are a real help to our students who are making their decisions about courses this year and completing UCAS forms.


Year 10 Visit STEM Module

Year 10 students enjoyed a fantastic microscopy workshop on the STEM module, and were privileged to see amazing images from the scanning electron microscope!

American Ireland Fund

Lagan College yesterday welcomed Ms Carla Stover from the American Ireland Fund.

Ms Stover is a great supporter and benefactor of Camp Camilla and integrated education and was keen to visit Lagan College as we start our 35th Anniversary!

She is pictured centre along with Mrs McNamee, some of the students who attend Camp Camilla, and Mrs Olwen Griffith from Camp Camilla.


Happy 35th Birthday Lagan College!

On this day 35 years ago, 28 brave students arrived at the opening of Lagan College under armed guard, despite great opposition from many quarters.

Today, almost 1300 students and over 150 staff arrive at Lagan College for their first proper day of the school year.

We would not be where we are now without the hard work, determination and perseverance of our founding parents, supporters, staff, students, governors, financial backers, All Children Together, and everyone involved with the foundation of Lagan College.

This year we will host numerous celebrations, and will be unveiling a number of projects directly related to celebrating our history in detail, but for today – Thank you all!

Oh, and Happy Birthday to us!

Best Ever A-Level Results!

Congratulations to Lagan College’s Year 14 students who have achieved the best A-Level results to date with 68% of students achieving 3 A-Levels at A* – C grade, and 91% achieving 3 A-Levels at A* – E grade.

A big ‘Thank You’ must go to all their parents/guardians, teachers and support staff who encouraged, supported and cared for them along the way. It has been a joy and privilege to watch you grow and develop into beautiful young men and women.

Take care of one another as you fly our school nest. You will be missed!
