Welcome

Dear Parents / Guardians,

Ardnashee School and College is a controlled school for children and young people aged between 3 and 19 years, living in Derry and  the surrounding district.  The school provides a 16 year continuity of education and pastoral care for pupils with learning difficulties and associated disabilities.  There are places for up to 270 pupils.  High staffing ratios and excellent teaching facilities mean staff can promote a high standard of learning.

Our school web site allows us to share the work we are involved in as a school community and to show the positive and varied contributions our pupils are making, not only to Ardnashee School and College, but to their families, communities and their city......

Message from the Orthoptic (Eye) Dept, Altnagelvin

If your child was to have their glasses or vision assessed at school in April, this did not take place due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Once we are back to normal the assessment will take place. Until then, if you have any concerns regarding your child’s glasses or vision, please contact me on 028 7161 1424 where you can leave a message and I will get back to you.

Stay safe and hope to see you again soon.
