While there are no schools offering an international or foreign curriculum in Northern Ireland, expat parents can rest assured that their children will have access to a high standard of education. In fact, when it comes to academic prowess, the country often outperforms other parts of the UK.
The education system in Northern Ireland is similar to the schooling system in England and Wales, especially in terms of curriculum content. However, year groups work differently and religion plays a much more prominent role in education in Northern Ireland than it does in the rest of the UK.
Expat parents unsure of which school to choose can consult the website of the Education and Training Inspectorate, which conducts frequent assessments on all Northern Irish schools.
