Ready, Steady, GO! Let's Learn ! 
Newtownhamilton Primary School 
Newtownhamilton Primary School is a co-educational school operating under the authority and control of the Southern Education & Library Board. Pupils range in age from 4 to 11 years and enrolment for the current year - 2014/2015 - is 68 pupils. 
The school building opened in 1955 following the amalgamation of a number of local schools and the building occupies an attractive site on the Armagh side of Newtownhamilton. 
The school consists of a main building with 3 classrooms, and there is a further mobile classroom on the school grounds. We have access to a full size gymnasium/hall and a canteen for school meals just opened this year. 
We also have the use of extensive grounds which include two tarmaced play areas, a school garden, a full size football pitch and an additional grassed play area. Work has also just begun on a new 2g pitch, to be completed by the end of March 2015. 

Hand in hand we Learn Together ! 

Newtownhamilton Primary School was last inspected by the ETI in November 2009. During the inspection, the visiting team of inspectors concluded that, 
'The children's behaviour is very good, they are well motivated and work well both individually and collaboratively on group activities.' 
'The teachers are very hard-working and committed to the education and care of the children, and are very well supported by the classroom assistants.' 
'The provision for special educational needs is very good.' 
'The quality of the arrangements for pastoral care is very good. This is evident through the excellent working relationships at all levels and the supportive and inclusive ethos developed in the school'
