Methodist College Belfast

1 Malone Road Belfast BT9 6BY

“Methodist College Belfast, or Methody as the College is commonly known,  is one of Northern Ireland’s leading grammar schools, with an outstanding reputation for academic excellence and an impressive record of achievement in music, drama and sport. Founded by the Methodist Church in 1865 the College is a non-denominational, co-educational grammar school, where pupils of all faiths and none are welcomed into a safe, supportive and inclusive environment. We aim to provide equal opportunities for all and the diverse talents of each of our pupils are appreciated, nurtured and celebrated. The development of intellectual curiosity, critical debate, active and independent learning, and the pursuit of excellence are all valued. Through the pursuit of curricular and extra-curricular activities we support and promote our belief in the importance of developing the whole child. Our pupils are encouraged to be enthusiastic, confident and tolerant young people, who have respect for themselves and for others.”
