James Hamilton Academy is a non-denominational, co-educational, comprehensive school, which means that it is open to all boys and girls who live in the area which the school serves. A few parents living outside this area exercise their right, under the Education Act, to send their children to James Hamilton Academy. Departmental accommodation is extensive in four blocks with adjacent playing fields.
Every child of school age has the right to a school education provided by an education authority. Our aim in James Hamilton Academy is to provide a balanced and stimulating curriculum, which will challenge our pupils to achieve their best and, at the same time, develop their personalities, talents, mental and physical abilities to their fullest potential. So they are able to intigrate into society.
We are committed to working with you, the parents, and we hope that you will join us in our drive to develop successful young people who will become good citizens and effective contributors to our workforce.
