CSSC has been inspired by recent stories from controlled schools and how they reflect their school ethos. A number of Principals kindly shared their experiences with us in a series of videos.

Victoria Park Primary School are truly brave

02 July 2020

Victoria Park Primary School opened in September 2008. The new school was the amalgamation of a number of schools in the Sydenham area of East Belfast, including Mersey Street Primary School, Sydenham Infants and Strand Primary School. The schools merged into the old Strand building, clearing the Sydenham site for a new state-of-the art school which was opened in 2014.
