We are an all ability school and have
high expectations of all the boys and girls in our
care. Our aim is to nurture and develop the
individual talents of each pupil in order that they
enter society as a well-rounded individual, able to
contribute positively to the community in which they
We aim to create a supportive,
well-ordered and welcoming environment that
challenges each pupil to strive towards reaching
their full potential. Young people are encouraged to
make the most of the numerous opportunities on offer
at Omagh High School ranging from music, drama,
various sports, speaking and outdoor activities. We
see ourselves as a happy, vibrant hard-working
community and promote mutual respect and integrity.
When our pupils leave us we want them
to be able to make the most of the opportunities
that come their way. Many pupils will not be able to
have a job for life - society is changing so fast
that our young people will have to be able to adapt
to meet these changes. Pupils will have to embrace
the life-long learning concept, as they may have to
change jobs several times in adulthood. We feel we
will have done our job if we can provide our pupils
with the necessary transferable skills that can be
of use in the future.
We value our partnerships with
parents and the community. Our collaborative links
with Omagh Academy and South West College and allow
us to provide a truly broad curriculum providing
opportunities for all.
