The School

The School

Would you like your children to attend a school where they would be encouraged to achieve their personal best in all areas by a team of highly skilled and professional teachers? Where they develop as confident young people equipped to meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century workplace? Where success and achievement are prioritised, regardless of ability?

Integrated College has become established as a caring, forward looking school, meeting the needs of all young people in a welcoming and supportive environment. Based in Downpatrick, Blackwater Integrated College puts a high value on its integrated ethos and as a result parents play an active part in the life of the college and the voice of the students is clearly heard through its Student Council.

From entering the College in Year 8, students are challenged and supported to meet the high expectations of their teachers and their school experience is enriched by a varied programme of trips, workshops and extra curricular activities which inspire their development.

As part of increasing Integrated provision in the area Blackwater has been working with a local steering group to get a new 11-18 Integrated College in the Mid Down area. This has recently been approved and will open in September 2025 at a location soon to be decided in consultation with the Department of Education. This is a very exciting time for all Blackwater students as they will be the founding members of the new school and with Post 16 provision also in place from September 2025 there is a very bright future ahead for Integration in the area.
