Ballyholme Primary School is situated in the heart of a mature residential area, it was opened in 1953 to accommodate 350 pupils. With the expansion of the population in Bangor it has now grown to an enrolment of 627 pupils.

The fundamental aim of the school is to provide all pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum with a specific emphasis on the development of basic skills. It is intended that every pupil should achieve his or her maximum potential within the context of a caring community where the school is perceived as a natural extension of the child’s home.

A dedicated and efficient teaching staff includes Principal and 24 teachers, plus a teacher in charge of Special Needs. The school also employs teachers for Literacy Support, Music and Physical Education. The teaching staff is supported by a team of classroom assistants, secretaries, building supervisor, cleaners, kitchen staff, supervisors and crossing patrol dedicated to the holistic development of the individual children.

The school was recently awarded UNICEF’s ‘Rights Respecting School Award’ by the minister of Education. Pupils are encouraged to respect each other’s rights and are also actively involved in various ECO schools initiatives. The school has been awarded the green flag. A sensory garden has been established with staff pupils and parents all working together.
