Finn Valley College

Mission Statement: Our Mission is to promote, offer and support accessible, inclusive and holistic learning opportunities which will enable the College community to empower itself to reach its full potential in society.

In April 2007 Stranorlar Vocational School officially changed its name and is now known as: Finn Valley College or Coláiste Ghleann na Finne.  In May 2010 work began on the construction of the new purpose-built new school to cater for 325 students. The new school opened to students in September 2011 and currently has an enrolment of 304 students. 

Finn Valley College is a small coeducational school  offering a wide range of programmes to cater for all students of all abilities.  We offer all programmes up to higher level LCVP.  Our school prides itself on the holistic child centered approach which puts our students at the heart of the education process.
