Saint Mary's is a Catholic Maintained co educational primary school in a rural setting about 2.5 miles from Castlewellan. The impressive Mournes lie to our east while Slieve Croob lies to our west. Visitors to our school always comment on our beautiful surroundings! The school was first opened in 1965 and currently has an enrolment of 130. We have a main school building with 3 classrooms and two offices. We also have a new Key Stage 1 building with a staff room.

Our Principal, teachers, clerical staff, classroom assistants, supervisors, cleaners, kitchen staff and crossing patrol man make up a team dedicated to the education and welfare prospects of all the children in our care

The school aims to create a Christ centred atmosphere which fosters growth in faith and love. Each child is provided with a broad, balanced curriculum which promotes the child's spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual and physical development in a secure and caring environment.
Emphasis is also placed on developing self confidence, self esteem and consideration for others. Pupils are encouraged to produce a high standard of work and conduct themselves in a positive manner.

A wide range of extra curricular activities are also undertaken within the school. Some of these include Gaelic football, hurling and camogie, netball, basketball, aerobics, cycling proficiency, Cumann na mBunscoil general knowledge quizzes, Trocaire fund raising (and other fund raising), CCEA Key Stage 2 ICT Accreditation, EMU (schools' community relations programme), school concerts / plays and various musical activities.
