About Straidbilly


Straidbilly Primary School serves a wide local area in the north of Co Antrim, between Ballymoney and Bushmills. Many parents bring their children to school by car but there is also a bus provided by the EA which can pick them up at their own home and return them there in the afternoon.

Our facilities include:

5 classrooms ( 2 of which are part of our new extension!)
Dining Hall and new PE hall
AR Library
Resource area
School Kitchen

Outside, pupils have access to:

Large playground
Large playing field
School Garden

School Trips:

Beyond the school gates, we explore learning opportunities on a regular basis. Educational visits include trips to Belfast Zoo, Ulster American Folk Park, Armagh Planetarium, Rathlin Island, Carrickfergus Castle, Ballycastle Beach and Watertop Farm.

The opportunity is open to Keystage 2 pupils to participate in a residential trip in the summer term.

These always prove to be popular and rewarding trips, especially in terms of personal development.
