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.

We want our school to be at the heart of the community and while it has a Christian ethos and history we welcome and want to learn from families from all cultures, creeds and backgrounds.

If you are in our catchment area, then we would love to have you join our school. Please feel free to call into the school or you can phone the office on 02890864171.

As Principal, my door is always open to parents wishing to discuss their child's progress or anything at all related to the school. I welcome and encourage you to be involved in our school family as this is the best way for our children to become “aspirational achievers, resilient learners and caring contributors to a challenging world.

Mrs Joanne Griffith
