Open Enrolment for 2024-25

Families, we appreciate and welcome your interest in our school.

The process for applying for a place in either our Nursery Unit or Primary One classes requires you to make an online application through the Education Authority's Open Enrolment Portal which opens in early January and closes at the end of the month.

To support you in making an application, we are hosting an Open Enrolment Information Session for prospective Nursery applicants and prospective Primary One applicants.

St. Bride's P.S and Nursery Unit Open Morning  Friday the 5th of January 2024 at 10-11am Derryvolgie Hall, Derryvolgie Avenue. Principal's address at 10.15am. 

Copies of our Admissions Criteria and a School Prospectus will be available at both sessions, after which time, they will be added to our school website and available by hard copy upon request to the school office.

Admissions Criteria are also posted on the Education Authority's website.

Admissions Criteria change annually in line with the latest guidance to schools. You may wish to look at previous admissions criteria for 2023-24 listed below as a rough guideline.

If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you reside in the parish, please feel free to phone the school office for clarification.
