Welcome to the St. Mary's Primary School Maguiresbridge website. Thank you for logging on to our site.
I hope you have an opportunity to spend a little time exploring and obtaining an insight into the life of the school and the school community. We believe the site has something to offer everybody i.e. children, parents/grandparents and the wider community.
St. Mary's P.S Maguiresbridge is a small, friendly, family oriented school served by a committed and professional staff. The staff engage fully with the Northern Ireland Revised Curriculum providing a broad, balanced and progressive curriculum appropriate to the children’s individual needs enabling each pupil to achieve their full potential.
We take great pride as a school community in the various extra curricular activities which the children are involved in St. Mary’s and the great successes they have achieved over the years including County Champions in Netball, Soccer, Gaelic, Cross Country, overall School Winners in Feis Art, Verse and Handwriting. All of these successes point to the importance we place on our children participating in extra curricular activities.
For those parents accessing the website who are interested in enrolling their child at St. Mary's PS Maguiresbridge we cater for children in classes from Reception through to Primary 7. Our class sizes are smaller than average which facilitates a greater level of one to one teacher support reflected in the children’s academic performance which is well above the Northern Ireland average. The school operates an ‘open door policy’ for new and prospective parents to come and visit the school and see it for yourself. Please contact Catherine (the school Secretary) or Mr Prunty (the Principal) to arrange a time to come and visit the school.
As newly appointed Principal of the St. Mary's I would like to thank the children, staff, parents, Board of Governors and those associated with the wider school community for welcoming me so warmly to the school. Thank you.
Meanwhile enjoy the site, read the articles, view the photographs, tell your friends and we will be delighted to welcome you back again and again.
