Hazelbank Primary School, Broughshane

Our School


Hazelbank Primary School seeks to nurture, challenge and educate the individual in a safe, stimulating and disciplined environment where good relationships are fostered and respect for one another is valued.

Hazelbank Primary School opened its doors for the first time on 15 April 1985.  It replaced three small schools, Upper Buckna, Mullindreen and Racavan (also known as Hazelbank).

The first principal was Mr J V Russell who worked hard, in partnership with a committed and enthusiastic Board of Governors and dedicated teaching and ancillary staff, to establish the excellent reputation of this school within the community. Mr Russell retired on the 31 August 2009 after 24 years dedicated, unstinting and inspirational service.

Mr Russell was succeeded as principal by Mrs Beverley Gray. The school has gone from strength to strength and currently has an enrolment of 161 pupils taught within 7 single  class groupings.

We pride ourselves on being  small enough to enjoy the benefits of the warm family atmosphere of a rural school, yet big enough to provide our pupils with the breadth of curricular experiences,opportunities and social interaction necessary to ensure each child fulfils their individual potential.
