Welcome to Methodist College Belfast

Methodist College Belfast, or Methody as the College is commonly known, is one of Northern Ireland's leading grammar schools, with an outstanding reputation for academic excellence and an impressive record of achievement in music, drama and sport.

Interdenominational since its foundation in 1865 and co-educational within months of its opening in 1868, the College is proud of the continued growth in the diversity of its pupils, both past and present, and celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2018.

Methodist College has a long tradition of commitment to pastoral care, and places great emphasis on the moral and social welfare of its pupils in addition to their intellectual, physical and cultural development.

The College is a voluntary grammar school, and it's partnership with the Department of Education allows it to receive substantial government funding while retaining its traditional independence. The Board of Governors has responsibility for control of the College, and its members are appointed by the Conference of the Methodist Church and the Department of Education or elected as representatives of parents and academic staff.  

Whatever your interest in the College, we're delighted that you have taken the time to find out more about us. 

We hope that you find this website interesting and informative and encourage you to browse around the site, discovering something of the character and richness of the school.

Principal - Mr. Scott Naismith
