Ballydown Primary School, Banbridge

Principal's Welcome

Hello and a very warm welcome to the website of Ballydown Primary School in Banbridge. My name is Mr Murphy. Our school is a fun and vibrant place to learn. There is always lots going on and we hope our website will give you an insight into life at our school. The website will keep you up-to-date with what’s going on and we aim to share lots of photos for you to enjoy and share in the many experiences our pupils are involved in. We hope you enjoy spending time browsing and getting to know a little more about our school. Feel free to contact me in school with any questions or suggestions you may have.

B Murphy
