St Mary's Primary School Banbridge

Our School

St Mary's Primary School is a maintained, co-educational school for children aged 3 to 11 years old. It is situated on a large landscaped site near the centre of Banbridge, close to the Scarva Road. The school encompasses a purpose built Nursery and Playgroup and has two fully equipped specialist Learning Support Classes for children with moderate learning difficulties and an specialist Autism Specific Class.

The school has its own ICT suite, Green House and gardening area, a pond with environmental area and three large open play areas. Disability access throughout the school was greatly improved recently with the installation of chair lifts and a lift between all three school levels. In addition, our PTA helped fund the creation of a canopy area in the P1 playground and the installation of patio doors for our P1 classes to enable our children to access outdoor play more readily.

Each classroom is very well resourced and fully equipped with the latest technology. Interactive whiteboards, laptops, digital readers, ipads and digital cameras are all used to bring education and learning alive in the classroom and to our children’s learning experiences.

The school's caring and learning ethos lends to strong parental, Parish and community links. Our highly popular Breakfast Club operates from 7.45am each morning and our After School Club is open until 5.55pm daily.
