Our School

Athlone Mixed National school is a co-educational primary school under Church of Ireland patronage. We operate under Department of Education and Skills guidelines and curricular content.

In our school community we aspire to promote a nurturing environment where each child is encouraged and motivated academically, socially and spiritually to become a responsible happy individual. This environment is created by encouraging mutual respect and tolerance, by the attention given to each child in our care, and through close home-school co-operation.

Our Ethos

We at St. Mary’s Parish, Church of Ireland, Athlone Mixed National School are committed to caring for and educating all our children, regardless of age, sex, race or religious denomination in a secure, safe environment.
