Education Restart

Roy T. Bennett, in his The Light in the Heart, commented “Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create”. In Antrim Grammar School we are delighted to be reunited as a school family. Our return to school has been planned very carefully to protect and support everyone – pupils, staff and the wider community. We have adapted our school environment and established new routines in light of Covid but we have not lost sight of who we are as an AGS family – committed to outstanding teaching and learning, unapologetic about wanting the best possible outcomes for our pupils, supportive of each other and focused on becoming stronger together as a whole school community. We embrace our context and we are excited about what we can create in spite of Covid this year.
