Key Stage 3

Mr Barry McDermott, Head of Key Stage 3
Mr Barry McDermott, Head of Key Stage 3

Welcome. I’m Mr. McDermott and as Head of Key Stage 3, I have an overview of Year 8, 9 and 10. I work closely with the Head of Key Stage 4, Mrs. Gallagher, the Head of Pastoral Care, Mrs. Dumigan and the Principal and Vice Principal.

My role is to oversee the development of all students in the Key Stage, as they make the leap from Primary to Secondary education and then into Years 9 and 10, before graduating into Key Stage 4.

I focus on both their pastoral and academic development, acting as the link between the two distinct and yet inter related areas. Both Pastoral and Academic Monitoring systems are firmly in place to ensure that all students are able to access the curriculum and achieve their potential. I work in partnership with parents, to ensure that every child attends college regularly and makes progress in all subjects.
