Further Information

The present building was opened in 1973. The design is open-plan with two class bases, a large open area and raised dining area.

It has an open outlook with tarmac and grass play areas, as well as a football pitch, offering ample space for outdoor activities.

At present two classes are formed (P1-4 and P5-7) with the Head Teacher having a three-day teaching commitment in P5-7. Although each class is composed of several stages, the curriculum is carefully planned to ensure that every child progresses at a pace appropriate to his or her ability.
