School Email Changeover

Ballakermeen staff are currently switching email clients. We don't envisage any disruption to communication, however, as a precaution please telephone school if you do not receive an expected response to an email.

Library news!

Have you had a look at the library catalogue yet? You can check it out from the school website home page; you will be able to see all our resources at the click of a mouse INCLUDING our new trial selection of e-books which students can download to their computer, phone or tablet. The book will stay on their device for a week, when it will automatically be removed (if they’ve not finished with it, they can simply download it again). Did you know that you can also access our catalogue via an app? Simply search for iMLS and download it for free!

For more information please contact the school library in person, by phone on 648748 or by email at

Centrally located on a secure, single site we enjoy a reputation for high academic achievement, excellent pastoral care, and a proud record in sport and the arts. Our facilities are outstanding and include a swimming pool, sports hall, extensive ICT suites, laboratories and a theatre.

Ballakermeen High School has recently celebrated a Silver Jubilee, and for 25 years we have succeeded in meeting the needs and aspirations of our students and their families. Although we are a large institution we are a close-knit community where many kinds of success are celebrated and every individual is valued. We are proud of our listening relationship with parents and the way in which we develop our staff to provide the best in learning opportunities. Quite simply, we are passionate about learning and about helping our students to make the most of their time with us.
