Dear Visitor

As Principal of Saintfield High School, I consider it a privilege to be able to lead this thriving school community. The school will celebrate its sixtieth anniversary in 2018; a testament to the enduring role it continues to play within the wider County Down area.

Saintfield High School enjoys a rich history of both academic and personal excellence, embedded in the strong relationships that exist between home and school, and between our staff and pupils.

Ms Watt - Principal of Saintfield High School

The diversity of experiences we provide for all our students is underlined by our strong child-centred provision, and in our high quality practices of teaching and learning. As a school community, each and every one of us shares the aspiration of creating and maintaining a learning environment which fosters and celebrates high standards in every single area of school life.

Our foundations built on firm family and community values are strengthened when we respect and celebrate our traditions, while looking to future to embrace all those opportunities that will ensure our pupils continue to be positive contributors to today's vastly changing society. I am passionate about the future of Saintfield High School, and about inspiring the future of its successes and achievements.

I have always been extremely impressed by the achievements of our young people, both inside and outside of the classroom. Our pupils are inquisitive, engaging, and importantly, proud to be students of Saintfield High School.

Our teachers and members of support staff are equally impressive with their skills, professionalism, dedication and commitment to our boys and girls, providing an exceptional educational experience for all children, with an emphasis on celebrating individual excellence, and on meeting the holistic needs of every child.

At Saintfield High School, we recognise the primary role of parents and carers in educating our young people, and the significant impact your involvement makes upon each pupil. I understand the importance of engaging families in our pupils' overall learning, and have never taken for granted the rich source of information and expertise that our parents and carers bring to our learning community.

I am delighted that you have taken the time to visit our website and find out more about Saintfield High School. For our prospective Year 8 pupils, please visit our ‘Why come to us?’ section for more details.

As a huge thank you for all of their hard work and commitment to the school, Saintfield High School’s team of eager and enthusiastic Prefects for the current academic year (2017/2018) enjoyed afternoon tea with their Principal, Miss Sarah-Lucy Hynds, and special guest, previous Principal, Ms Vivien Watt.

A thoroughly enjoyable time was had by all before the Prefects tenure came to a close, to make way for a new cohort. Ms Vivien Watt retired from the post of Principal of Saintfield High School at the end of 2016 and current Principal, Miss Hynds, stated that ‘it was an absolute honour to welcome Ms Watt back for our farewell to the Prefects, and the boys and girls really appreciated her attendance, since she had the privilege of watching the pupils grow and mature from Year 8’.

Ms Watt is pictured beside the plaque which hangs proudly on the side of the school’s Sports Hall in recognition of the time she served as Principal from 2004 – 2016.
