At Mill Strand Integrated School & Nursery, we believe in every child... in the personalities, talents and qualities that make them uniquely special. We also view ducation as being the holistic development of the individual recognising that learning comes in many forms.

Our 2020 Vision reinforces our belief in a child-centred approach to learning and that it is a journey to be valued and enjoyed, with an open mind and positive approach. We believe that all children can achieve and that our potential is only limited by the limits we place on our aspirations.

With a growing enrolment and a reputation for the highest quality of educational provision, these beliefs underpin the work of the school as we plan for our new school build to meet the demand for high-quality integrated education on the Causeway Coast.

At Groarty Primary we are delighted that everyone who walks through our door comments on the warm, friendly ‘feel’ of the school. We believe that our positive ethos is evident through everything we do. Mr Tomlinson is justifiably proud of his small but growing school, where there is always an emphasis on meeting the needs of every individual. “We provide a broad and balanced curriculum which allows all pupils to access learning at their level. Currently we are developing our STEM work, giving pupils practical, experiential learning experiences each week.”

Groarty is the only school with Integrated Status on the Cityside of Derry/ Londonderry. The school has served the local community for 152 years, becoming Integrated 11 years ago. All the feedback from parents, pupils and staff shows what a happy, positive community we are.


Oakgrove Integrated College, a co-educational, non–denominational centre of excellence and achievement, is celebrating 24 years of providing quality education. We are proud of the highest academic standards achieved by our students, which have seen our sixth form students leave us to continue their studies in Oxford, Cambridge and a range of nationally and internationally recognised universities. Oakgrove students have been repeatedly recognised as having achieved top scores across a range of subjects.

As well as benefiting from a quality academic education, our students have the opportunity to take part in our well-developed and wide-ranging leadership programmes, which equip them with the skills needed to make the most of their abilities and to continue to achieve success long after they have left Oakgrove. These programmes form part of our cutting-edge pastoral care provision.

We draw pupils from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, and provide them with a quality education which promotes and celebrates equal expression of those diverse traditions. Oakgrove promotes self-worth and self-esteem of all individuals within the school community. We foster an atmosphere of understanding, respect and appreciation of difference. Our success is reflected in both our academic results and our extra- curricular achievements.
