Welcome to Bunscoill Rhumsaa!

At Bunscoill Rhumsaa, we believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply learning to engaging contexts. That's why we provide learning challenges which require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively throughout the curriculum.

Our imaginative topics provide an engaging environment for children to develop new skills, increase their knowledge and become independent learners, while our 'essential skills' framework ensures that children's progress is carefully monitored so each pupil is able to focus on their individual learning requirements.

On our website, you'll be able to keep up to date with our adventures in learning - we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
