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 School 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 wellbeing programmes delivered in every classroom, for example, Hopeful Minds and Helping Hands programmes.

Pupils at Abbots Cross Primary School achieve outstanding results. Year on year over 90% of our pupils achieve their predicted level in Numeracy and Literacy.

Please feel free to contact the school office (02890864171) and arrange a visit to see our outstanding facilities and meet our dedicated staff. You and your child will be made very welcome at Abbots Cross Primary.
