Choosing the correct school is an important decision and we hope that the information available on our website will assist you in making your choice.

In Ballyclare Primary School it is so important to us that children settle into school quickly and happily and our wonderful Primary 1 teachers and Learning Support Assistants work closely with families to make the transition to primary school a positive one.

Throughout the Year we also welcome many pupils into our Primary 2-7 classes. We work hard to ensure all new pupils settle into their new class, make new friends and quickly feel part of the BPS family.

Please take some time to explore our website and our online prospectus. If you have any questions about our school please contact our school office to arrange a chat with Mrs Mulligan (Principal) or a visit to see our pupils and staff in action.
