Ballycarry Primary School, Carrickfergus


I would like to welcome you to our website which will hopefully give you a flavour of the school as well as providing regularly updated information. 

Ballycarry Primary  is a rural community school in a beautiful setting.  We aim to provide a caring ethos where pupils feel happy and valued. A recent inspection noted both the very high standards of pastoral care and teaching within the school.

We provide a wide range of sporting and musical activities both during and after school. These include football, hockey, Multisports, Fundamentals, swimming, singing tuition, violins, piano and guitar.

To assist busy parents we provide a breakfast club from 8:00am and an early drop-off facility at 8:30 am.  We also provide an After-schools Club for pupils in P1-P3 from 2-3pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

I hope you enjoy your visit to our website and if you have any questions or wish to experience our friendly school in person please feel free to contact us to arrange a visit.
