About Methody

Situated on the south side of Belfast in a pleasant suburban setting opposite Queen's University, the college comprises a grammar school of up to 1810 pupils between the ages of 11 and 18, and a Preparatory Department catering for a further 500 pupils between 4 and 11 years. One part of the Preparatory Department, Fullerton House, is situated in the College grounds, while Downey House stands in the middle of the extensive College playing fields at Pirrie Park.

Pupils at Methodist College are encouraged to express themselves and develop their talents wherever their interests lie. In all our activities the school seeks to prepare our pupils to be able to contribute as fully as possible to the world in which they will live and work.

To achieve these aims the College strives to provide a safe and stimulating environment in which the knowledge, abilities, attitudes and behaviours of our pupils can be developed as fully as possible. Everything we do is carried out in a spirit of respect for the intellectual and moral integrity of the individual.

Respect for others and behaving in a way which demonstrates tolerance and understanding are central to the ethos of Methodist College.
