 The Education Authority’s proposals for a new post-primary school on the land at Three Mile Water Playing Fields, Doagh Road, were submitted to Antrim & Newtownabbey Borough Council for full planning approval in Spring 2022.
It is anticipated that construction will commence late 2023, with the anticipated opening in the academic year 2025/26

This will give our students, staff and community the most modern, up-to-date technology and infrastructure for learning and teaching.
Equiping everyone to realise our college motto of –

Operation Encompass
Our school is part of Operation Encompass which is a national scheme that operates jointly between schools and police forces.   Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has experienced domestic abuse. 
As a school we have ensured that members of our staff, known as a Key Adult, have been trained in the Operation Encompass procedures allowing us to then use the information that has been shared, in confidence, to support the child/ren in our care.   We are continuing to work behind the scenes to upskill our Safeguarding Team to ensure that the best possible support can be given to both the young person and the families, if and when needed.
The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 identifies children who experience domestic abuse as victims of domestic abuse in their own right.  We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
