Newtownhamilton Primary School
Newtownhamilton Primary School is a co-educational school operating under the authority and control of the Education Authority. Pupils range in age from 4 to 11 years and enrolment for the current year - is 70 pupils (excluding Reception children).
The school building opened in 1955 following the amalgamation of a number of local schools, making this year our 60th Anniversary. The building occupies an attractive site on the Armagh side of Newtownhamilton, adjoining Newtownhamilton High School.
The school consists of a main building with 3 permanent classrooms, and a further mobile classroom. We have access to a full size gymnasium/hall and stage area in the High School as well as a large canteen for school meals, just recently opened.
We also have the use of extensive grounds which include two tarmaced play areas (Rec - P2 children have a safe, enclosed play area with equipment and storage at the back of the school), a school garden with large planting boxes and a mini beast area, a full size football pitch and an additional grassed play area. Work has just recently finished on the fantastic new 2g pitch which will further enhance our sporting opportunities.
We are very fortunate to be in a position to share facilities with the adjoining High School meaning that transition for our P7 children into Newtownhamilton High School is a very smooth process as our pupils are familiar with the buildings and staff from an early age. We also have a number of pupils each year who move further afield and continue their education in the local Grammar school, Armagh Royal.
If you wish to visit our school to view the facilities available please contact the Principal, Mrs Angela Henry to arrange an appointment. We look forward to meeting you.
