A note from our Head Boy & Girl                                         

Many of you reading this will be taking your next step on the journey to adulthood. This can be a daunting and unnerving experience but if Saintfield High School has taught me anything, it is that hard work and determination bring great rewards. I found myself in your very position five years ago. Leaving my much loved primary school, teachers and friends was difficult but once I stepped through the doors of my new school, all of those feelings left me. Saintfield High School was my road to maturity and a fresh route on my educational journey to fulfil my true potential. With each day that passed in Year 8, I simply became more and more confident, ready to tackle any challenges which lay ahead. I believe the main reason why I became so settled into my new school life so quickly was the warm, child-centred atmosphere that exists in every classroom and corridor. At Saintfield High School, each and every teacher encourages pupils to achieve their very best; they guide students in the right direction and give constant praise for achievements, challenging pupils to excel. I firmly feel that I would not be the person I am today if it were not for the support and help that this school has given me. Saintfield High School has equipped me with extremely useful skills that I know are necessary for my future. I am so very proud to serve as Head Girl for 2016-2017, and am honoured to be a part of such a vibrant and exciting school community.

Thinking back to Primary 7 seems like a lifetime ago. I remember being so anxious and excited about what was right around the corner. For me, the choice of my next school was easy…a school renowned in the community for high standards of results, uniform and manners. A school with a welcoming atmosphere that strives to encourage every pupil’s potential. Saintfield High School was definitely the school for me! Thinking back to when I started Year 8, my emotions were everywhere. I had mixed feelings of excitement and trepidation. However, I settled in very quickly, and I knew I had made the right choice…the school simply felt like home! At Saintfield High School there is a large range of subjects to choose from, from Home Economics to Technology and Design, and Agriculture and Land Use to Performing Arts. I am so proud and honoured to hold the position of Head Boy for my school. I am delighted to be an ambassador for Saintfield High School as the entire school community means so much to me. It has given me the confidence to pursue my dreams and to reach my full potential in both my studies and extra-curricular activities. One of the many things I have learnt from my journey at Saintfield High School is that, if you try your hardest and give 100% when faced with every challenge and task, you will succeed. I can honestly say that my experiences here at Saintfield High School have been rich and varied, and have helped me develop holistically as a young person. You will be more than happy with what this school has to offer! We are looking forward to meeting you and to welcoming you to our school community.
