What the school says...

Campbell College is an HMC day and boarding school for boys and was founded in 1894. Throughout its rich history it has been committed to raising expectations, fostering enthusiasm and inspiring a love of learning. We want our students to leave believing that they can make a difference in society; we want them to leave with things that are going to matter to them for the rest of their lives. Boarding has been a significant aspect of the College's provision from its foundation. Today it remains an essential part of the College and boarding numbers have more than doubled in recent years.
It sits peacefully in a beautiful 100 acre wooded estate in the east of the vibrant city of Belfast. The Lonely Planet Guide endorses Belfast as being a "city on the rise" and the United Nations cites it as the second safest city in the world.
Access to Campbell College is very easy; our current pupils come from a range of destinations and use local transport providers. Belfast City Airport is 5 minutes by taxi from the School and offers a range of services to the London and regional airports in mainland UK and Europe.
