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. In August 2017 the school relocated from temporary accommodation at St Patrick’s into the new school building. The new school offers state of the art facilities throughout, with improved classroom space and improved parking facilities.

The school site encompasses a full time nursery and has two fully equipped Learning Support Classes for children with moderate learning difficulties and a specialist Autism Specific Class.

Each classroom is very well resourced and equipped with the latest technology. Interactive panels, 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.

And forgive us our trespasses,

As we forgive those who trespass

Against us;

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.
