Your Support for Transformational Change at Coleraine Grammar School

Transformational change with multi-million-pound investment is taking place at Coleraine Grammar School.

An iconic new building at the front of the campus will provide state of the art music facilities, modern social and study accommodation for sixth form and further new classrooms. 

Several renovation projects are also taking place, including the transformation of the basement of the school’s original 1860 building into an ultra-modern fitness suite and PE provision for all our pupils.

Several years ago, the provision of a wonderful new boat house with coeducational changing facilities ensured that rowing would thrive in the new school, and the pupils have exceeded all expectations.  This year, new rowing steps have been installed, and they will enable many generations of pupils to maintain and enhance our unique and special rowing status.

Work is now underway to update our Games Hall at the Ballycairn Road, and we have also begun to modernise the historic War Memorial Pavilion changing facility.

The above is transformational change for Coleraine Grammar School, but it is not enough to fulfil our vision for the new school.

Fulfilling our vision for the new school

We need the support of the school community, locally and further afield to provide an Astroturf pitch at the Ballycairn Road playing fields to be used for multi-sports, and most importantly, girls’ hockey.

This final addition will complete the big picture, so that we will have achieved everything shown in the section below.

This is transformational change by any standard.

The school community can help us finish the projects to complete the big picture, and realise our vision for Coleraine Grammar School with the best extra-curricular facilities.

You can help us to empower our present and future pupils to flourish in every way.
