Our school facilities and space are second to none. We have a beautiful newly refurbished and extended school building containing 10 mainstream classrooms with double cubicle toilets for boys and girls in each one. We also have 5 support teacher rooms and a huge new gymnasium. We have state of the art technology with each classroom having a new Activpanel, a new PC, a HD webcam, laptops, iPads, high speed fibre broadband, access to a large amount of educational software and access to centralised photocopying and printing services.We also have two excellent yards; one secure and enclosed yard for infants only with new playground equipment, Go Karts and a new Wendy House and a large Senior yard with soccer pitches, a basketball court and beautiful seating benches. All of our pupils use our School Field with two sets of gaelic football posts, a beautiful nature walk and a running track. All in all we have the largest and best playing facilities for our pupils of any school in the north-east.
