Admissions 2022

Dear prospective parents,


It is very unfortunate that due to the ongoing pandemic, we cannot hold our annual Open Day in the usual manner. It is always our pleasure to 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 while the children are going about the activities of the day and get a feel for the special ethos that permeates our wee school. 


We are however hoping to be able to offer some afternoon appointments in January to any prospective parents who would like the opportunity to see the school for themselves before making their application through the admissions portal.


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 2022.


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 2022.


Ruth Millar

(Acting Principal)
