We were delighted to welcome the Education Minister, Mr Peter Weir MLA, to Bloomfield Collegiate School on the last day of the Christmas Term, Tuesday 20 December 2016.
Welcome to Bloomfield Collegiate School's website. Bloomfield is a vibrant learning community with a child-centred ethos and a deserved reputation for excellence.
The School is an 11 to 18 Grammar School for girls, in a quiet residential area of East Belfast. It was founded over a century ago and it has grown steadily, from small beginnings, to the present day enrollment of 710 girls. The School's vision is for 'excellence in a caring community' and this succinctly describes everything we do. From excellence in teaching and learning through to the comprehensive range of extra-curricular activities on offer, the staff endeavour to provide these in a caring and nurturing environment. Bloomfield is proud of its pastoral system, as it provides the framework for success. We are also proud of the achievements of our girls at GCSE, AS and A2 Level. The Education and Training Inspectorate’s report (ETI) of March 2015 had as its conclusion 'the quality of education provided by the school is good' and the Governors, management and staff are working to ensure Bloomfield Collegiate evolves and changes to meet the changing needs of the pupils. The girls are encouraged to excel in numerous areas including sport, music, dance, drama and competitions and gain many successes at local and national level. Indeed the ETI report stated 'pupils benefit from an extensive range of extra-curricular programmes which supports well their personal, social and academic development' and this is central to the ethos of the School. Senior pupils are encouraged to take on many leadership roles within School and to reach out to the local community through their work in charity shops, residential homes and special schools and the ETI recognised this very important aspect of the enrichment programme in their findings: 'The pupils develop a strong sense of social responsibility, empathy and respect for others reflecting strongly the school's core values.'
As you browse the website I hope you get a flavour of what is unique about Bloomfield and if you have any questions about any aspect of the School please do not hesitate to contact me.
