A very warm welcome to the Lisnasharragh Primary School website. I hope that it will provide you with a flavour of what we can offer the children who attend our school. The website contains a wide range of information that children and parents should find interesting.

The number of children enrolled at the school has increased dramatically in recent years. We currently have 13 classes with a total of 334 children attending. There will be 60 Primary 1 places available for September 2017.

In May 2014 the school had a very successful inspection. Please take time to read the subsequent ETI report in the Parents’ section.

The Parents’ section also includes information regarding our Breakast Club, 2 to 3 Club and Afternoon Club. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to visit our school.
