Spires Integrated Primary School, Magherafelt


Chair of Board of Governors: Mr B Doyle

Spires Integrated Primary School owes its birth to the hopes and dedication of local parents and grandparents.  People, who differed greatly in background, shared a common desire - to see children from different cultural and religious backgrounds educated together in an environment in which the traditions of all are valued equally.  The Northern Ireland Council for Integrated Education and the Integrated education Fund helped make this shared desire a reality.  This has been greatly appreciated.

Spires opened in September 1999 in temporary mobile huts, catering for children in P1 - P4.  moved to purpose built accommodation in January 2000.  In September 2002 the school was able to decompose the P4/P5 composite class and provide separate classes for P1 – P7.  This was funded by the Integrated Education Fund through Meet the Challenge, part of the Going for Growth Grant Making Programme.  This project would not have been possible without IEF support and the school is very grateful for this.
