Welcome from Mrs. Ruth Daly (Headteacher)

Welcome to the Bangor Independent Christian School homepage.

Our school opened in September 1985 on the Clandeboye Road in Bangor adjacent to the Free Presbyterian Church. Ours is one of seven such schools in Northern Ireland and was opened as a result of growing concern among Christian parents over the increasing influence of evolution, ecumenism and humanism in State Education.

Our school is a privately-run establishment and does not receive government funding of any kind. Finance is raised for the school by fees paid by parents, covenant support, gifts and fund-raising events. Christian Education encompasses all curriculum areas. Students explore God’s creation in ways that acknowledge Christ as central to life and learning.

During students’ formative schooling years, Christian education seeks to develop their understanding, values and attitudes from a Biblical perspective. We cater from Pre-School (Sunbeams) right through to GCSE level. Please take a few moments to view our Primary and High school sections.

If you are interested in the work of Christian Education then I would like to hear from you. A prospectus is available and you are welcome to view our purpose built school. Please do not hesitate to telephone and make an appointment with myself.

Bug Hunt


"We're going on a bug hunt" was the cry as pupils recently investigated the bugs in the grounds surrounding our school as part of their study of hedgerow habitats.  As well as having the chance to get out and about, we also had fun reading the story 'We're going on a bear hunt.'

Missionary Visit

BICS was delighted to welcome back past pupil Andrew Foster who will head out to Uganda in a few weeks.  Mr Foster told the pupils how the Lord had led and guided in his life from the days when he was a pupil to the present time, encouraging them to endeavour to know Christ and make Him known.  Everyone enjoyed seeing photos of Emmanuel Christian School in Uganda and they had the chance to ask many questions about life there.  

We will continue to pray for Uganda, especially in our Monday morning prayer times when we focus on Africa.

Reformation Bibles

Pupils were delighted to receive beautiful commemorative Bibles from the Trinitarian Bible Society this week, the reward for correctly completing their Reformation Quizzes at the end of the last school year. 
The quizzes fitted in so well with our efforts here in school to learn about the Reformation in this special anniversary year.

Healthy Eating Week

This week pupils in our school have been taking part the British Nutrition Foundation’s Healthy Eating Week. This involved us trying some of the BNF Healthy Eating Week challenges.

 

Pupils had the opportunity to take part in activities within school, including games and cooking to promote key health messages and habits.  


Key Stage Three pupils are pictured making healthy snacks which we later got to enjoy at our Praise Service.

Key Stage Three CPR Training

On 8th June Key Stage Three pupils took part in the British Heart Foundation’s Mission: CPR, which aims to create a nation of life savers.  In the CPR training sessions, the pupils learned child and adult CPR, how to put a casualty in the recovery position and how to use a defibrillator.

 

Currently only 1 in 10 people survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest but our pupils, and others who also took part across the country, aim to change that! Their CPR training could mean the difference between life and death for any of the 30,000 people who have a cardiac arrest every year.

Reformation Room Visit

With great excitement, BICS pupils headed to The Reformation Room at Martyrs’ FPC on 26th May.  ‘Katherine Von Bora’ took us from the 95 Theses doors at the front of the building, upstairs to various sections representing parts of Martin Luther’s life.  There was much to see and do, such as trying various costumes and Luther’s ‘monastery’ bed, watching a video of Luther’s life, solving puzzles and getting hands on experience with a printing press.  Thanks to Alana and James, who did an excellent job so that alongside the fun the important Reformation truths were being taught to young minds.  Thanks also to Bryan for driving the bus.

Geography Fieldwork

Key Stage Three and Four Geography students were glad to have a chance to do some fieldwork at Crawfordsburn River today.  Everyone was able to take part in obtaining the measurements needed and we all returned home relatively dry!
