Hazelwood Integrated College is a high performing, co-educational, all-ability Integrated school, situated in and serving an area of multiple deprivation in North Belfast. Hazelwood brings together students from different cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. The college straddles the North Belfast Peace Line and challenges sectarianism, promotes high expectations, practices holistic inclusivity and teaches its students that your circumstances and where you are from do not determine your future or your potential to be a valuable contributor to society.

The College has introduced a number of unique initiatives to further enhance both the learning & pastoral experience of its students, these include on-site Social Workers, Staff and Student Well-Being Coordinators, an LGBTQ+ group and an Internship programme for students at Post 16.
