Welcome to Dromore National School

Welcome to the website of Dromore N.S. This site has been designed to enable everyone to become familiar with our school, its policies and the high quality learning environment that we provide for the children and community.

In Dromore N.S. we believe that students are happiest when they are engaged, challenged and excited by learning. Our aim is to develop the talents of all pupils by involving them in a wide ranging educational experience. We are committed to excellence in academic, cultural and sporting pursuits, and to active partnerships between staff and pupils, school and home.

We hope that this site will be of great benefit to our pupils, parents, guardians and friends. It is our aim that your child will be happy in our school and will achieve his/her potential.

Through our website, we will give you a flavour of the many activities in which we are involved and what it’s like to be a member of our school community. We hope you will gain enjoyment and information from your visits.
