History of Coagh

Coagh, which owes its existence to George Butle Conyngham, is situated five miles east of Cookstown and was founded in the 1720's. The name derives from 'an uiach' meaning 'the hollow' as the village nestles among gentle low lying land between the Sperrins and Lough Neagh.

The main feature of the village is Hanover Square, which was named in honour of the reigning Hanoverian King George II by Conyngham.

The School Curriculum


Curriculum Policy Statements

It is the policy of the Board of Governors of Coagh Primary School that all pupils will receive their full entitlement under the Northern Ireland Curriculum and that the school will go beyond that entitlement in areas where there are particular abilities among the staff.


Broad Aims of the School

Coagh Primary School will offer a curriculum that is balanced and broad.  This curriculum will seek to prepare the pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.  It will also be the aim of the school to help all children to become articulate, literate and numerate.


Detailed Aims

The curriculum shall be so designed that the desire to learn will be encouraged in the pupils and that thinking and reasoning will be stimulated.  It will be held to be important that children learn to apply themselves to the work in hand.


General Principles

The acquisition of knowledge and skills will be regarded as important.  This acquisition will, however, be placed in the context of the development of positive attitudes to learning and the development of sound moral values based on the Christian Religion.
