school_buildingThe school was extended and refurbished and a new school with enhanced educational facilities was opened in 2007. The building is completely accessible for disabled people and the corridors are spacious.  We pride ourselves in creating a welcoming and stimulating environment for our pupils.

classroomWe have five large modern classrooms which are bright and welcoming. Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard and computers which give our pupils the opportunity to learn in an exciting and up-to-date environment.  We prepare children for a rapidly changing world through learning in ICT.   All classes from P1 t P7 have their own virtual learning environment where teachers can support pupils in their learning outside of teh classroom, for example, with homework.  Children’s work is celebrated and displayed throughout the school.

hallOur multi-purpose hall provides a spacious area for PE lessons and is also used for assemblies, concerts and other whole school activities.  We have a stage which is most useful as we are a school who promote The Arts, and use this area frequently for performances.

playgroundOur large playground includes a soft play area for younger children and offers children the space to use and enjoy a variety of outdoor play and learning equipment.  Our very active and supportive PTA have raised funds and installed a variety of outdoor playground equipment that enhances the whole school experience for our pupils.  We have used funding to enhance our play and activity based learning curriculum with outdoor resources that enhances the pupils’ experiences.
