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.
