Welcome from Miss Anna Priestley (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.

December Crafts

Over the last few weeks we have been busy crafting.  Here are some of the items we created.

Transparent, Translucent or Opaque?

In our Science class we are continuing to study materials and their properties.  Pictured are some of our pupils who were investigating whether objects were transparent, translucent or opaque.  We turned out the lights and made the room as dark as possible and then shone a torch on each object to see if the light would shine on to the wall behind.  Our next task was to make a Venn diagram showing what we found out.

Poetry Success

Congratulations to Elisha who is now a published author!  She wrote a poem for the Through Their Eyes competition which invited students aged from 11 to 18 to write a poem from someone or something else's point of view.  Elisha chose to write from the perspective of a young baby and we are delighted that her poem was accepted for publication.

Science Experiments

Boys and girls at BICS love the chance to do some Science experiments!  As part of learning about materials and their uses, pupils made a wall and then were like the wolf in The Three Little Pigs and tried to blow it down!  
We decided the brick wall was the strongest😀

Past Pupil News

Some parents would perhaps wonder if my child went to a Christian School would their education suffer?  Would they be disadvantaged? 


Well, to answer that question, let's consider just two of our past pupils, who spent twelve and fourteen years respectively in Christian Education.


Stephanie graduated recently from QUB with a 2:1 BSc Hons in Agricultural Technology.  She has now been accepted for a MSc at QUB in Agri-food and Rural Enterprise.


Reuben has recently graduated from QUB with a First Class Honours degree in Mental Health Nursing.


Disadvantaged?  Definitely not!
