The Wallace High School has a proud and rich tradition of academic excellence, pastoral support and extra-curricular provision.
Value for the individual is central to school life and is demonstrated through our shared aims of commitment, opportunity, respect and excellence.

A cross community, selective grammar school Wallace welcomes applications from all sections of the Lisburn and wider community.
Whether you are a current, prospective or former student, an interested parent or member of the local community, I trust you find this site informative and illustrative of the breadth and quality of education on offer here.
