Welcome to Bunscoill Rhumsaa!

Adventures in Learning!

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

Exciting, imaginative topics provide an engaging environment for children to develop new skills, increase their knowledge and become skilled learners, while our rigorous 'essential skills' framework ensures that children's progress is carefully monitored, so that each pupil is able to follow their own, 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!
