Welcome to Rathgar Junior School

  • Kindergarten A enjoying time with their new friends.


The long-awaited summer holidays have finally arrived and we couldn't be more proud of how all of Rathgar Junior School's students have coped with learning from home the past few months. You have achieved so many amazing things. Thank you also, to all of our parents and families for giving such amazing support to all of the children and the school alike.

Sadly we are saying goodbye to Form 6 as they will all be moving on to secondary school in September but we wish them all of the luck in the world and we know they will continue to achieve so much and come back to see us soon. The staff have put together a leaving video for Form 6 which you can watch here and the end of year slideshow for the whole school is here

We hope that you all have an amazing summer and take the chance to relax and enjoy yourself. We can't wait to see you back in school in September.
