We have a highly committed and skilled team of teaching and support staff, who will work together for the benefit of all children in our care. We nurture the talents of all our children and endeavour to make each child feel valued, safe and happy.


We are a Catholic school and as such we promote Gospel Values including respect and tolerance.  We welcome all those of other faiths and cultures. As a Mercy school we strive to create equality for all who are disadvantaged.  Our pupils care for others and are developing their global responsibility for others through charity work and being involved with local community links.

We have a calm yet stimulating learning environment which prepares our pupils for the challenges of future life and tomorrow’s world.  We have a technology rich environment where Ipads and interactive whiteboards are standard in every classroom. Our pupils are ambassadors of the future.


Our past pupils give a small indication of the potential developed here at Mercy Primary School.  We are honoured to include Mary McAleese (Former President of Ireland) and Nichola Mallon (Former Lord Mayor of Belfast) Nuala McAllister former Lord Mayor, as among many successful, past pupils who began their education here at Mercy Primary.
