Collaborative models allow schools to retain their ethos, while providing opportunities for their pupils to experience diverse teaching and learning contexts. The young people of Limavady are given opportunities to gain academic or vocational qualifications as well as invaluable experiences that they can use in their journey towards adulthood. Teachers, pupils and in many cases parents form relationships that cross existing cultural and traditional barriers.
There has been much successful work already undertaken by the Roe Valley Learning Community (RVLC) and this continues to grow between Limavady Grammar School, St. Patrick College, Dungiven, Rossmar School, Limavady High School and St. Mary’s Limavady.
Our current partnership includes a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular shared projects including:
St. Mary’s and Limavady High School will take the learning community a step forward with the completion of a new state of the art STEM Centre based in Limavady High School and a new Sixth Form Centre based in St. Mary’s, both for use by pupils from both schools. A new bridge will connect the two school buildings.
