NI Sunday Times Secondary School of the Decade


I am thrilled to announce Rainey Endowed School has been awarded the “NI Sunday Times Secondary School of the Decade”.


Alastair McCall, editor of the Sunday Times, said: “Children leave the Rainey as citizens of the world and graduates of an outstanding school, which manages to combine consistent academic excellence with a wider educational experience that equips them for life. It is impossible not to be wildly impressed by the school’s ethos, and the enthusiasm and commitment of its leaders to their mission.


“In making it The Sunday Times Northern Ireland Secondary School of the Decade, we recognise the transformative effect a great education can have on children, the Rainey’s pupils being its finest ambassadors. The school’s charitable work in countries as diverse as India and Uganda puts into action its teaching and enriches the lives of all involved. A place at this school should be highly prized.”


This is a great accolade for everyone involved – staff, pupils, parents and the wider Rainey community. The article will be published this Sunday, 29 November, in the Sunday Times.
