Macosquin Primary School, Coleraine


Dear Parents / Guardian

I am delighted to welcome you to our school website! This site has been designed to give you all the essential information to ensure you get a flavour of the wonderful pupils, staff and everyday life events associated with our school.

Set in the historic village of Macosquin where education in the village dates from as far back as 1824, our school is proud to be connected to our local and wider community. We place great emphasis on sustaining a positive learning partnership between home and school. With your support, co-operation and encouragement, we look forward to working together, to ensure that your child's time at our school will be fulfilling and rewarding.

At Macosquin the pupils are the central focus of our school. Our team of dedicated staff provide a positive, caring and child centred environment in which your child will be nurtured and grow, achieving their potential. We are committed to recognising and celebrating success in every child and we strive to prepare them for the challenges which life may present in the future.

But don't just take our word for it. The only way to get a true feel for our school is to come and see us at work and I warmly invite any prospective parent to make an appointment to do just that. We will be only too delighted to meet with you, show you our facilities and demonstrate the work that we do.
