ALC

The Area Learning Community (ALC) has been established to develop further post-primary education provision in the area it serves in a manner which promotes a culture of collaboration and respect for cultural diversity.

The ALC has been established to develop further post-primary education provision in the area it serves in a manner which promotes a culture of collaboration and respect for cultural diversity.

Whilst the community recognises the autonomy and ethos of the individual schools, the education providers of the area will progress the aspirations of the Entitlement Framework and support the implementation of the community’s strategic planning.

The community’s strategic intent is to act as advocate for all of the young people of the area, developing an agreed framework of educational provision which provides equality of opportunity for achievement and progression and an agreed framework of holistic education.  Curriculum Pathways include a range of both general and applied subjects to meet the needs, aptitudes, aspirations and interests of all students. 

St Columban's College is an active member of Newry and Mourne ALC.  Working with the following 16 other schools and learning providers, we strive to expand curriculum provisions and widen pupil opportunities.  

St Columban's College currently works closely with Southern Regional College
