Welcome to King’s Park Primary and Nursery School Lurgan.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school web site and to tell you a little about our school and what goes on here day by day. King’s Park school was built in 1936 and backs onto Lurgan Park. This natural resource offers our children unique opportunities to learn, exercise and enjoy all that nature can offer in nurturing an inquiring mind and healthy body.
We have a full size Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) which was built in our grounds in 2012 and this facility greatly enhances the physical activity opportunities we as a school can offer to our children.
In King’s Park we aim to provide each child with a broad and balanced curriculum within a caring and stimulating environment, supported by a highly committed and professional staff. At present we have three nursery classes and twenty-seven Primary One to Primary Seven classes. Our enrolment number is 658 with an admissions number of 94 into Primary One.
While we are a large primary and nursery school with a large staff we very much have a ‘family ethos’ where all children are known and cared for.
Since the year 2000 we have operated a Breakfast and After School Club known as Kidz Patch for our children, this facility runs each day from 7.30 am to 6.00 pm in the Jethro Centre.
As a school we have had a long and distinguished tradition and we intend to continue to enhance the school’s reputation within and beyond our local community.
We as a school pride ourselves in providing a broad and balanced curriculum to all our pupils with an emphasis on academic excellence and the development of each child’s individual’s talents and abilities to the full.
Our school aim is ‘ Children First’ and we will always strive to put the needs of your child as priority. In working closely together with our parents we believe that the children will experience an enjoyable, enriching and rewarding time in primary school
