Hello and Welcome to Rasharkin Primary School’s website. This is a great place to learn about the work that goes on in our school and celebrate with us the many and varied successes of our students.  

Rasharkin Primary School first opened, on its current spacious site, in 1973. We cater for both boys and girls, from 4 – 11 years and have an average of ten children in each year group. As a small school we place great value on the close relationships that can be formed with children, their parents and their extended families.   


We aim to ensure that during their time with us, all children are provided with the values, skills, knowledge and abilities that will develop them, not only academically, but physically, social and morally too. It is our desire that when children leave us, they have been equipped to deal with the breadth of challenges and experiences real life throws at us. Whilst we strive to ensure each child reaches his / her full academic potential, the aims of Rasharkin Primary School go beyond academic achievement. Children and adults alike are encouraged to value their contribution to the life and work of our school, whatever that may be.  

As you browse through our website, I hope you enjoy what you discover about our school and the work that goes on in it.  Please get in touch if you would like any more information. My thanks to all who contributed to the formation of this website which is a tremendous addition to our school.
