Memorable Learning

 Welcome to the Ampertaine Primary School website. Whoever you are, we hope that you will enjoy your visit and find our pages interesting and useful.

Our small rural school has one hundred and twenty six 5-11 year-old girls and boys whose experiences are designed by 5 teachers, 3 classroom assistants and 2 administrative staff.

We welcome everyone to our school and do all in our power to ensure that children's time with us is safe, enjoyable and fruitful.

Parents, children, residents and business folk rely on us to provide the future drivers of our community... hopefully, your visit will give you some idea of how the  ambition, confidence, reliability, integrity and spirit of our youngsters are nurtured and guided.

    BAM Outside Work UPDATE 10TH July

    Hi folks, We've applied for a small grant from Power NI Communities Fund. If successful, this will allow us to add the additional safety escape gate to our new Billy's Yard Play Area extension. We are very much in Ian and Heather Millar's debt for their knowledge and advice which will help us to make sure our children from Little Amps and Ampertaine are able to play/learn safely and happily.

We really enjoyed her visit.
