Oakgrove Integrated College is an integrated secondary school based in Derry, Northern Ireland. The all-ability school was founded in 1992 with the hope of integrating young people from both sides of Northern Ireland's religious divide and giving all of its students 'self-esteem'.

Integration[edit]

Northern Ireland is viewed as a divided place, a country where adults and children can be separated on religious, social and political grounds. Oakgrove, and other integrated institutions like it have been used in the country to try to offer a middle ground for parents who want their children to learn in a safe, and unbiased environment.[1]
