The Education Authority (EA) Pre-School and Primary One online admissions portal will open on 7 January 2021 and close on 29 January for applications for the academic year commencing September 2021. Further information on the process will be available on the EA website from 18 December.
With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the admissions window for Pre-Schools and Primary Schools just around the corner, unfortunately the traditional open days can’t happen this year.
There are many ways you can still find out about an Integrated school you may be considering for your children. Many Integrated Schools have videos showing school life (a digital prospectus), others have interactive digital tours on their websites, some are planning online tours later this month or in January 2021. A very small amount are providing limited tours.
To help you navigate around the various Integrated Primary and Nursery Schools we have compiled a list for you. The list links to their websites and social media channels where you can find additional information and updates from the schools, virtual tours and videos. These can be found on the pages linked to below. Explore their websites, watch the videos and visit their social media pages to get a taste of these wonderful schools. You can also contact the schools directly if you have any queries, they will be happy to help you and talk to you about their school.
