Welcome to Burrenreagh: A Unique School with Small Class Sizes Offering an Exceptional Educational Experience. A Small School with a Big Reputation.

Welcome to the website of St. Patrick’s Primary School, Burrenreagh, Bryansford. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty close to Tollymore Forest Park, we are a vibrant, caring, thriving rural school that serves the Newcastle and Castlewellan area and beyond.

At St. Patrick's, staff work together to ensure that all children reach their full potential and receive an education in an intimate setting which inspires lifelong learning. Ours is a friendly school with a true family atmosphere where we offer an exceptional educational experience. We are proud to have small class sizes (an average of less than 20 per teacher) which bring enormous benefits for pupils with extremely high standards of achievement. The pastoral care of each pupil is of the utmost importance for us. We work hard each and every day to ensure that each child is happy and enjoying all aspects of life and learning at Burrenreagh.

You are most welcome to visit us and see our happy, purposeful school environment, with highly professional, dedicated staff who strive for the very best for every child in their care. Please telephone us here at the school office on 028 43778593 to arrange a time to visit us and you will enjoy a warm welcome.
