Admissions 2021

Dear prospective parents,


It is very unfortunate, due to the current climate, that we cannot hold our annual Open Day and let you experience a little taste of what Maghaberry Primary School and Nursery Unit has to offer your child as they begin their formal educational journey. There is simply no substitute for getting to tour the buildings and get a feel for the special ethos that permeates our wee school. 


However, the contents of this page should provide you with some important details about Maghaberry Primary School and Nursery Unit as we approach the opening of Admissions for September 2021.


If you require any further information please contact the school and we will be more than happy to take the opportunity to talk with you.


Thank you for your interest and we look forward to welcoming a whole new intake of happy children in September 2021.


Ruth Millar

(Acting Principal)
