Senior Primary

The Senior Primary Phase is an important time in a developing child's life. Our focus is on the whole child and our boys and girls are encouraged to participate fully in what Atholton Primary School has to offer. The growth of the child intellectually, emotionally and physically is important and in order for these characteristics to be developed, we endeavour to create a nurturing environment in which our children feel safe. Our pupils are encouraged to explore all avenues of learning.

Classrooms are spacious and class size is comfortable, allowing for easy movement. Various specialist classrooms are provided for Computer / Internet, Music and Technology to be taught by Specialist teachers in their dedicated areas. Physical Education is also taught by a specialist teacher and good use is made of our full size heated swimming pool and sport fields.

Atholton boasts a beautiful, well equipped Senior Primary Media Centre which our boys and girls visit weekly for formal lessons. It has well-stocked Fiction and Non- Fiction sections and pupils are encouraged to borrow books regularly.

The extra-curricular programme is available to everyone and all children are encouraged to participate in as much as they can, enjoying the interaction that sport encourages and simultaneously learning the various skills that accompany the particular activity being offered.
