Do you have a child who is due to begin Primary 1 in September 2018?

Come along to our open night on Tuesday the 28th of November 2017 to have a look around the school and chat to the principal and teachers at Lisnasharragh!

Applications for Primary 1 will be available soon.


Admissions criteria

The Board of Governors draws up the admissions criteria and delegates the responsibility of its application to the Principal and senior clerical staff.

For more information on the admissions criteria please read the document below.

Key dates

Each year the Department of Education permits Lisnasharragh to admit up to 60 children into P1. This admissions figure varies from school to school and is largely determined by the size of the school building. (A total of 58 children started P1 in September 2016.) We currently have two classes in the P1, P2, P3, P4 and P5 year groups.
