Welcome to Inchmarlo

Welcome to our school website. It can only impart a flavour of life at Inchmarlo but I hope you will find it interesting and informative.

Set in six acres of picturesque surroundings between the Malone and Lisburn Roads, the school has extensive facilities, such as an ICT suite, interactive whiteboards, astro-turf pitch and two playing fields. Academic excellence is achieved through our attention to individual needs, while we cater for all talents and interests through a vast range of extra curricular activities. There is also a comprehensive programme of sport, music and drama and the House system ensures boys achieve success and self- confidence in all of these areas.

We're very proud of our boys and we enjoy an excellent relationship with parents, whose support is greatly appreciated.

If you would like to see around the school please do not hesitate to contact me and you will receive a warm welcome from boys and staff.

Run in the Dark 2016

On a thankfully dry, but chilly Wednesday morning the Inchmarlo boys started their Run in the Dark challenge for the Mark Pollock Trust. 

Over a hundred boys took part alongside parents, members of staff and IPA members. 

A huge well done to all involved.

P4 Bus Trip









BELFAST BUS TOUR         October 27th


Today we went on a very fancy bus tour. Our tour guide’s name was Tommy and he knew a lot of facts about Belfast.

First we went down the Lisburn Road past Inst and Queen’s University which was named after Queen Victoria who made Belfast a city in 1888.

Next we past the Albert Clock and the Salmon of Knowledge. This is a legend. After that we went to see Harland and Wolff and the Titanic slipway. We saw how large the Titanic would have been- very huge!!

On our way to Stormont we went past Campbell College and went up the steep Stormont hill. In WW2 the building was covered in tar and manure!

Lastly we saw Crumlin Road Gaol before going to the Peace Wall. We got out and read the comments written on the wall.


We were also late for lunch because our trip was so much fun!






Prince Edward and the BAC boys.


Belfast Activity Centre


On Tuesday a group of boys from Inchmarlo went to BAC along with Mr Smyth. We knew that we were going to meet somebody very important but we had no idea who!  We were very excited.  Mr Smyth said we had to be on our very best behaviour.


When we arrived at BAC we got off the bus, had a snack and then went climbing. All of a sudden, I looked up and spotted my Dad showing Prince Edward around! Josh and I were introduced to him and he asked us lots of questions about what we do at the Bears programme- our Inchmarlo afterschool club, run by BAC. I really enjoyed the day!
