Boarding : Sixth Form Boarding for Girls
Welcome to Campbell College
Since 2006 boarding has grown from 60 boys to 130 girls and boys enrolled for September 2012.
How has this notable growth come to pass?
Inevitably, the people who inhabit a boarding community set the culture and define the nature of the relationships enjoyed by everyone involved. At Campbell and Strathearn we have first rate teaching and support staff that know each pupil as an individual and care for them across every step of a school career.
Schools with excellent boarding provision are also built on sound principles. The approach to boarding adopted by Campbell and Strathearn is built on a belief in the virtue and effectiveness of an holistic approach to education; a belief that strong pastoral relationships are at the heart of effective education, and that focusing on individuality within the community leads to self-confident contributors to society.
Campbell and Strathearn offer an education that is outward looking and one that prepares young people for the future. To be successful in today’s world, boys and girls need to understand the cultures with which they come into contact. To become more human, to receive a rounded education, how much richer the sixth form school experience is when it is in the company of pupils from very different backgrounds to one’s own; as you journey across your sixth form career alongside boys and girls from all over the World.
We extend a warm welcome to you to come and visit our schools and experience, at first hand, a boarding experience that makes young lives extraordinary.

Welcome to Strathearn School
Through boarding we are delighted to be able to offer to girls from different cultures, the opportunity to receive an education which prepares them to take up places at some of the top universities in Great Britain and Ireland.
We offer a broad range of academic A-levels to a sixth form of over two hundred students. The consistently high level of success achieved by our students keep us ranked within the top 100 UK State Secondary Schools. Through the work of the Careers Department, students receive individual guidance and advice to ensure they are best prepared to secure a university place. Currently Strathearn School is undergoing a £14million rebuild so that all our students will learn in 'state of the art' facilities.
Boarding in the sixth form at Campbell and Strathearn is more than achieving good A-levels. It is an experience that prepares students to embrace life and the opportunities offered at a UK University. Situated in the attractive leafy suburbs of East Belfast, our campuses offer a host of sporting and recreational facilities and all within 15 minutes of the city centre and the George Best Belfast City Airport. The care of all our students is always given a priority and those who are boarding are assigned a personal tutor to ensure they are best supported. In addition, we actively promote the well-being of our students through sport, music, drama and other activities, helping them develop their individual interests and talents. This complete and rounded education is so important in preparing our students for the next stage of their life.
No website or prospectus can hope to convey the very positive atmosphere that previals in our school and the quality of the education and relationships we enjoy. You are very welcome to come and visit us to experience all that we offer.
