Open Day - Virtual Tour

While we would love to welcome you into our school to show you around and let you experience what Ballymagee has to offer, unfortunately this cannot currently be facilitated due to restrictions and risk mitigations around Covid and so you can access our virtual tour via the link below.


At a time when non-essential access for current parents and visitors is restricted, it would go against our risk mitigations/assessments and the directive from the Department of Education to host Open Days. The responsibility we hold for the safety and well being of those children and staff who are here every day must be our priority.


We trust that you will understand that this has not been an easy decision to make and hope that it is indicative of just how seriously we take the responsibility to look after the children who attend our school; the duty of care which parents entrust to Ballymagee will always be paramount in our decision making.

Key Dates - Primary 1 Admissions September 2022


The Education Authority (EA) manage a system of online applications for admission to  Primary 1.


The portal for parents, to apply online for a place, is used and requires parents to list preferences of schools. This replaces the previous paper based application form.


For the forthcoming academic year, parents will need to upload their child’s birth certificate directly to Education Authority portal. Some providers will also seek other verification documents at this stage in the process.


Information on the procedures for school admissions in September 2022 will be available on this website and the EA website from Friday 17 December 2021.


Last year, EA  provided Assisted Digital Support for parents and users of the  system. This was in the form of a  telephone service, enhanced website content and a number of face-to-face drop-in clinics held in EA offices and other locations during January. Keep an eye on the EA Website for details of this service.


We will provide updates as we receive further information from the EA.
