Primary 1 Applications

2020 has brought many changes to our normal routines and way of life. How you will be able to make your mind up about which school to select for P1 and pre-school will also be very different this year.

Normally we would host a series of open events in December and January that would give you the opportunity to visit our school before making your application for P1. This year however we will have to change this to provide limited tours of the school with Mr Gray in December and January, ensuring all covid procedures are followed. 

Tours will last approximately 30 minutes and can be booked by clicking here. At least 2 hours notification will be needed to confirm a last minute appointment. 

Below you can watch two videos about our school. One is a parents' prospective about why you should choose our school. The second is Mr Gray explaining what makes our school unique. 

If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment to visit the school please get in touch with the school office on 028 9181 3827, email Mr Gray on or contact us through our Facebook page.
