At the end of February, with the help of Randox Founder, Dr Peter FitzGerald, and Managing Director of Belfast International Airport, Mr Graham Keddie, the College launched its “Decade of Growth”, which outlines its vision from now until 2028.
Our plan was unveiled at a special assembly in which representatives from the Education Authority, NICIE, the Integrated Education Fund, local political representatives, business leaders, local bodies, parents and pupils attended.
The ambitious 10 point plan includes a new school, provision for learning for Over 16s, and the school transforming into a central hub for youth within the Crumlin area.
Our Ten Point Plan:
- A Building for Growth
- One Community

- LOVE integration
- Future proofing Career Pathways
- Beyond the School Day
- Home of Youth
- Our Voice
- Wellbeing for Everyone
- Sharing a Brighter Future
James Livingstone, Acting Chair of the Board of Governors commented, “Our Acting Principal, the excellent team of teaching staff and our Governors have taken a holistic view on our vision for the school. In addition to further improving our results and increasing our pupil numbers by 30% year-on-year over the next five years, we have ambitious plans for the future of the school.
Keynote speaker at the launch, Dr Peter FitzGerald, added, “The rebuilding of Crumlin Integrated College demonstrates the resilience of the school, its teachers and its support group, and their approach to setting a future vision for the school is to be commended.”
