Open Day 2020/21


Unfortunately this year, due to covid restrictions, we cannot have our usual, very popular Open Afternoon.

However, we would love to show new families around our school during an evening of your choice. There will be tea/coffee on arrival and be assured that there will be numerous hygiene, safety and social distancing restrictions put in place.

Please contact the principal at or 028 2565 2327 to arrange your visit and tour of the school. 

You may also email us at to place your child's name on a mailing list for September 2021.
