Mission Statement


In Ben Madigan Preparatory School we are fully committed to the well-being and all-round development of all our pupils.  We provide a caring, stimulating and safe environment in which expectations for all are high and where pupils are encouraged to develop as well rounded, tolerant, confident and independent individuals.

At Ben Madigan we aim:

  • To provide a balanced, stimulating curriculum that fulfils the requirements of the Northern Ireland Curriculum.
  • To promote the moral, intellectual, physical and social development of each child thereby helping them to realise their potential.
  • To encourage in our pupils initiative, determination and confidence.
  • To promote mutual respect between pupils, staff, parents and the wider school community.
  • To establish and maintain a partnership with parents in the education of their children.
  • To establish and maintain a positive approach to discipline where procedures are clear and staff are consistent in their approach.
  • To develop our pupils’ appreciation of their own culture and traditions and those of others thus helping them value diversity in society.
  • To maintain effective links with relevant pre and post primary schools and in particular Belfast Royal Academy.
  • To promote the school within the wider community.
