Year 1 Admissions September 2021

The EA's Admission Portal for Primary 1 Admissions will open on Thursday 7th January 2021 at 12 noon. The deadline for parents to submit an application online is Friday 29th January 2021 at 12 noon. After this date and time, the portal will close. Parents will receive notification of the outcome of their application via the Education Authority's Portal on Wednesday 28th April 2021.

We were disappointed that our scheduled open week in December and invitation to arrange short visits in January have had to be cancelled. However, if you have any questions and would like to have a chat about your child beginning their primary school career, please do not hesitate in getting in touch. Making that decision can be daunting and we are here to help you.
