Portadown Independent Christian School offers an affordable, high standard of education in a Christian environment with a Christian ethos.
We are a privately run, fee paying Nursery, Primary and Secondary school administered by Portadown Free Presbyterian Church with an intake from a wide geographical area and occupy a recently opened, purpose built, building on a site close to the town of Portadown.
Our school is open to all parents who have an interest in the spiritual as well as the academic, personal and social development of their child. We provide a stable school society in which pupils are encouraged to equip themselves for their roles in later life as workers, citizens and parents.
Using the Northern Ireland Curriculum as its framework the school aims to base our curriculum on the teaching of the Bible and to create a caring and purposeful environment which enables all pupils to obtain the maximum benefit from their time at school, thus preparing them for a life of fellowship with God and service to others.
Your child spends an average of 30 hours a week in school, for at least 12 years of their life. In a Christian school you can have confidence about what your child is being taught, and who is educating them, throughout these formative years.
All new pupils are entitled to 50% discount for one year.
Calculated at £1000 for a 185-day school-year your child will receive their education for £5.40 per day. This will cost less than £30 per week.
Our school and nursery recieves no funding from the Northern Ireland Government therefore the school is financed by the minimal fees, fund raising events and gifts.
We are a registered school in Northern Ireland and as such are inspected by the Department of Education to reflect the high standard of education we maintain. Our pupils complete external assessment at GCSE through CCEA and OCR which includes formal external exams and controlled assessment. We also have opportunity to complete assessment through NI Curriculum at KS2 and KS3, as well as progress tests year by year.
Proverbs 22 v 6
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
