Ballytober Primary School, Bushmills


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to our school website. We trust that this will become an excellent source of information to keep you up to date on the essentials as well as ensuring you get a flavour of what we get up to throughout the school year. 

There has been a school at Ballytober for many years. The first school was opened in 1818 and was located at the end of the Ballytober Road. It had two classrooms which were divided by a wooden partition, each heated with a coal stove.

The present school building was opened in September 1962 with 45 pupils. Our new extension was erected in time for the building's 50th birthday when the original 45 pupils were invited to witness the opening of our newly refurbished facilities. The school presently has 78 pupils.

Facilities – 4 classrooms, multi-purpose hall, ICT suite and Accelerated Reading library

Outside – Large playing field, climbing frames and play equipment

At Ballytober, our motto is 'Children First' and this is at the core of everything we do, each and every day. We hope that you will explore our website to get a feel for this and we warmly invite any prospective parents to make an appointment to come and see what we do first hand.
