Lurgan JHS is an inclusive, all ability Key Stage 3 school which welcomes pupils and families from all faiths and backgrounds and is proud to do so within a Christian ethos and with Christian values of tolerance, respect and love. This is reflected in our School Motto – the 3 ‘R’s- Respect for self, Respect for others, their property and the school environment and the promotion of Responsibility. We strive to develop these values in our entire school community by providing a safe, caring and tolerant environment, through the development of positive relationships at all levels, through the implementation of our school policies and through active and innovative learning and teaching.
