Head Boy & Head Girl

Hello, I’m Adam Carville and I am Head Boy of Antrim Grammar School. At Antrim Grammar I have always found that you are encouraged to work to the best of your ability and the focus of the school is in developing each individual so that they can reach their maximum potential.

There is such a strong community within Antrim Grammar School which allows for lasting relationships to be developed between students and teachers which only furthers your engagement in learning. No matter how big or small the problem is, the staff of Antrim Grammar School always help me and push me to succeed not only in my examinations but also in developing important life skills such as leadership and teamwork.

It has been a privilege to attend Antrim Grammar school for the past six years and I can say whole-heartedly that I know that I could not have been encouraged to develop myself as much as I have been at any other school.

 

My name is Elise McFarland and I have been given the privilege of being the Head Girl of Antrim Grammar School this year. I have always found Antrim Grammar School to be an encouraging and supportive environment which has a great sense of community and a true ambition to develop everyone, both in our studies and in our character.

There is a great sense of teamwork between pupils, teachers and parents/guardians. When I have been faced with challenges in a particular subject or topic the staff have always worked tirelessly to assist in every way they can. Here at Antrim Grammar School we are committed to helping one another to reach each person’s full potential, whether that is an A* or a C grade.

I can truly say that I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Antrim Grammar School and through the support of the School and the work I put in, I have received the grades that will open many doors for me in the future.  I have also developed into the person I am today and made friendships and memories that will stay with me for many years to come.
