Shimna Integrated College
|Motto||Learning from each other|
|Type||Integrated secondary school|
Shimna Integrated College is an integrated secondary school based in Newcastle, County Down, Northern Ireland. The all-ability school was founded in 1994 with the hope of integrating young people from both sides of Northern Ireland's religious divide and giving all of its students 'self-esteem'.
In March 2011, Shimna became the first school
in Northern Ireland to organize a gay-straight alliance.
