Royal Dungannon School is a voluntary grammar school in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. It was established by Royal Charter in 1608 and is a co-educational school for pupils in Year 8 and above. It also offers sixth form facilities.

The school accepts fewer than 100 pupils a year and these are mainly selected from local applicants who have selected the school as their next academic destination. Up to eight of these places will be available per year for boarding pupils. The school selects students based on the standardized score of the Association of Quality Education (AQE) who administer the Common Entrance Assessment (CEA).

Dungannon’s school ethos aims to instil a lifelong love of learning in its pupils and to provide an atmosphere where students can excel, both academically and personally. They aim to create a mutually supportive community where action is determined by respect, integrity and tolerance. Whilst promoting the value of the individual, the school also ensures that students are aware of their responsibilities in the collective body of students. This is demonstrated in the school’s determination to involve students in the wider community, involving visiting local residents and undertaking forms of community service that benefit the area as a whole.
