G Montgomery-webHeadmaster's Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  I hope you enjoy it and are able to find the information you are looking for.  If you have any unanswered questions please feel free to contact the school.

We are excited by what Cookstown High School has to offer and proud of what it has achieved in the past. This website is intended to convey something of the history, ethos and attainments of the school and its pupils.

We have a well qualified team of highly motivated and committed teaching and support staff who are dedicated to ensuring that each child has an enjoyable, rewarding and enriching educational experience. Our pastoral system, extra curricular activities and learning and teaching are all designed to ensure that each child aspires to be the best they can be, to reach beyond themselves, to contribute positively to our community and to achieve. 

Strong relationships among pupils, between pupils and staff and between the school and our families are vital to a successful education.  This ethos of partnership underpins all that we seek to do.

Cookstown High School can afford children unique provision.  As a grammar and secondary school combined we are able to place pupils who are academically able in a grammar stream where they can avail of top quality teaching up to A Level.  Most of these children will progress to university.

Children who are more vocationally talented and who make an equally valued  contribution to school life, can follow a tailored vocational pathway utilising our relationship with training organisations and the local College of Further Education

Our Learning Support Centre is superbly staffed and resourced providing the children there with great opportunities in a caring, challenging and supportive environment.

We are proud of our top quality sports facilities which have helped us to achieve our enviable record in the area of school sport, notably in hockey, football, netball and athletics, over many years.

Having visited the website you are welcome to visit the school.  We have an annual open night in January but if you missed it, or would like to meet with me, please contact the school to arrange an appointment.

Whatever your child’s ambitions together we can help them work towards it.
