We are delighted to welcome you to the Cambridge House Grammar School website, which we hope will give you a snapshot of school life.

Mr Marsh

Welcome to Cambridge House Grammar School, a co-educational selective school catering for 900 pupils, situated on an expansive greenfield site comprising almost 80 acres on the Galgorm Road in Ballymena, drawing pupils from primary schools across the Ballymena area and much further afield. The school is an amalgamation of Cambridge House Boys’ and Cambridge House Girls’ Grammar Schools who came together in 2001, however the school can trace its origins back to 1910 when it was founded by the Misses Jane Craig Currie and Sarah Kinnear.

Our dedicated team of staff work tirelessly to ensure that every child benefits from a high-quality learning experience, which promotes academic excellence and high attainment at all levels, in a safe, stimulating and supportive learning environment, inspiring our students to fulfil their potential and be successful.

We have a caring and compassionate pastoral structure that provides extensive support to our young people, helping them navigate their way through the ever-increasing challenges of adolescence. At Cambridge House, we strive to develop the physical, spiritual, emotional and moral well-being of our pupils, by building their self-esteem, and promoting traditional values of tolerance, respect and empathy; thus equipping our young people to become valued members of, and contributors to society.

The extensive range of co-curricular experiences and extra-curricular provision that are offered in sport, music, drama and other areas, are an integral and extremely important aspect of the Cambridge House experience, providing opportunities for each child to develop new skills and to showcase their talents outside the classroom. We pride ourselves on fostering a strong sense of community, where staff, pupils, parents and Governors work together to create a happy, confident and aspirational community of learners.
