Welcome to the St.John’s Primary School recently updated website.

At St John’s Primary School we provide education for all of the children in the local community striving to deliver high quality teaching and learning to ensure every child reaches their potential.

As Principal of St John’s Primary School and Carnlough Community Nursery I believe that a strong foundation is vital to ensuring the best possible outcomes for every child.

St John’s Primary School and Carnlough Community Nursery welcome pupils from all traditions.

Establishing close links with home and the community is central to all our teaching and learning and we encourage opportunities to work together.

For more information why not view our prospectus below or contact the school to arrange an appointment.

World Book Day at Carnlough Library

Carnlough Library held a special World Book Day Event for the boys and girls of St. John's P.S. Mrs Pauline Agnew was invited to the library today to read our classes the story of The Rainbow Fish. Ciaran, one of the librarians, kindly organised Art and Craft activities for the children based on the story. The children had a great morning in the library!

We wish Ciaran all the very best in his new adventure and thank him very much for all the help he has given us through out his time here in Carnlough.
