We have everything but a high school all on the one site! Our Glenavon Early Childhood caters for our community children from 3 years old. This can be accessed from our Hertford entrance.

In 2022 Glenavon one of our beloved teachers, Mrs Jackie Miru-Fransham passed away. Jackie was not only a respected colleague, friend and teacher here at Glenavon, but she was a truly amazing visual artist. Mrs Miru-Fransam created and contributed to many pieces around the school and was pivotal in the creation of the school logo which will be worn on the hearts of our students for many years to come.
