About our School

BRA CH17158 Edit

from the Principal

Mrs H. Woods

B.Sc., B.Ed., P.Q.H. (N.I.)

We believe that education has the power to transform lives, which is why every pupil at Belfast Royal Academy is given the opportunity to explore a wide range of subjects, activities and experiences. An education that encompasses the whole person unlocks passion, reveals talent and nurtures interests that will stay with our pupils for life. That is the philosophy of our School: high standards of teaching coupled with deep levels of academic and pastoral support. By stimulating intellectual curiosity, we create a cohort of independent thinkers, better equipped to contribute to and lead society. We watch self-confidence and self-worth visibly grow, encouraging every pupil to become the best version of themselves, both for today and for the future.

This has been the BRA way for over 230 years. We take great pride in our ethos and values honed over the centuries, but we are equally proud of the inclusive community that makes the Academy such a unique and special place - proof positive that the power of diversity makes us stronger, together.

I hope our website will give you a sense of our vibrant and caring school and the wealth of opportunities available. However, nothing can match the first-hand experience found within these walls, so I encourage you to visit us to immerse yourself in our unique environment and everything we have to offer.
