Opened in 1978, this purpose built primary school serves the entire island and replaced three (2 roomed) schools located in Knightstown, Corahabeg & Ballyhearney. Having one central school allowed island children to mix from an early age, as one must remember although the island is small one may have not known someone schooled at the opposite end of the island until they went to Secondary School in Cahersiveen!

It is a 3 teacher school with a part time learning support teacher.
