Welcome to the website for St Mary's Primary School and Nursery Unit, Newcastle, Co. Down.  We hope to provide you with an opportunity to view day-to-day life in our school and nursery, giving a flavour of all the wonderful learning and fun that takes place.


As a Catholic school, we hope to promote a happy, caring, open, unprejudiced, diverse and stimulating environment for every child.  In such an environment effective learning takes place, but we also help our children to grow into independent and responsible young people.


We aim to promote a caring school which values all who are part of it, creating an atmosphere of mutual respect in which the children feel secure and happy and all staff work together as a team, supportive of one another and sensitive to each other’s needs. 


I hope you find the website interesting and informative, however if there is anything else you would like to know please contact me directly via e-mail -


Thank you.


Mr P. Fusco
