Abbots Cross Primary School, Newtownabbey


Welcome to Abbots Cross Primary School and thank you for taking the time to get to know us.  With an enrolment of around 320 students in a 14-class structure, Abbots Cross Primary is in a position to provide a high level of resources while at the same time pupils are known on a more personal level.

The happy, family-friendly nature of our school community is underpinned by an excellent pastoral programme. Staff members are trained to support children of all abilities: those children with special gifts and talents, those on the Autistic spectrum and those with specific learning needs such as dyslexia and dyspraxia. Our pupils are further supported by a fully qualified school counsellor and by participation in Equine Assisted Learning programmes.

Pupils at Abbots Cross Primary achieve outstanding results. In the academic year 2017-2018 100% of our P7 pupils achieved their predicted level in Numeracy while 91% achieved their predicted level in Literacy. Three of our pupils actually exceeded the level predicted for them in Literacy.
