Welcome

Welcome to our website which provides you with useful information about the College and allows you to keep up to date with the activities and the achievements of our pupils.

Victoria College, a girls’ school with 870 pupils and a dedicated junior campus, is small enough to allow each pupil to be known. A strong commitment to providing education which is tailored to the pupils’ needs and which offers individual support and encouragement pays dividends. We have high expectations for all our pupils and in a positive learning environment, where the level of pastoral care is outstanding, each pupil achieves her full potential and is challenged to be the best she can be. An education in Victoria College adds value and we are delighted that our A level performance places us in the top ten grammar schools in Northern Ireland in 2013.

High achievers excel in the College and each year confident and articulate sixth formers leave school to access the university of their choice. Many of our pupils choose to follow STEM related courses at university level and we are delighted that former pupil Cindy Ku has been recognised as the Entrance Scholar of 2013 in UCD. This year all three Oxbridge applicants have been successful in securing places in Murray Edwards and Queen’s College Cambridge and Exeter College, Oxford.

In a girls’ school our pupils develop confidence and secure the skills and values which will prepare them for their future role in society as responsible and responsive citizens. Our pupils participate in a wide range of clubs, societies and after school activities and each pupil is given the support she needs to become a life long learner able to make informed choices and decisions. The College holds the International School Award and the professional development of staff and the experiences of our pupils are enhanced through our partnerships with schools both at home and abroad.

We are an Investor in People school and we are committed to maintaining high standards of teaching and learning, promoting good relationships and providing opportunities for everyone within a learning society.

I hope you enjoy browsing our website and we welcome any feedback you may wish to provide.
