Welcome to the Mill Strand Integrated School & Nursery Web Site. Over the coming weeks and months we are rebuilding this site to provide essential information for pupils, parents and friends of the school as well as 'signpost' key sources of information for prospective families, interested in the 'Triangle's' only integrated primary school & nursery.
As we begin 2017, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone associated with Mill Strand for their help and support in making 2016 another year of wonderful memories and great achievements for our pupils. With so much happening on a daily basis it is little wonder that we now rely heavily on our 'social media' feeds through Facebook and Twitter to communicate, celebrate and share life at Mill Strand.
The past year also marked a turning point for the school with the announcement by the Minister for Education that the school could now proceed to the planning stage for a new state of the art school. Exciting times lie ahead for 'Mill Strand' yet our priority remains those pupils currently enrolled at the school. A £60,000 investment to provide improved access and a commitment to on-going minor works by the Department of Education should ensure improved facilities at Dhu Varren while the school itself is embarking on a period of self evaluation, utilising its high capacity to bring about sustained improvement in the interest of all learners.

At the start of the school year we introduced new features to this site, including our new "What's On" page to keep everyone up to date with forthcoming events. This is still a 'work in progress' with further improvements to come.
Please take time to explore our site using the 'Tabs' at the top of the page and the clickable/interactive 'buttons' throughout the site to find out more. We hope that in doing so you will gain an insight into the school and be encouraged to visit us to find out more.
Integrated Education - In their words...
There is no sound more beautiful than that of children laughing, none more uplifting than children singing and none more enlightening than the thoughts of children when voiced. Click on the link above to watch the amazing work of our pupils.
We are indebted to our Year 7 pupils for creating this most thought provoking short film, marking 30 years of integrated education on the Causeway Coast and all they love about Mill Strand. Thanks too to Alan Hook UUC and Cleancutpixel for enabling our pupils to transfer their thoughts to film.
