Welcome

Killoughteen N.S. is a rural, mixed, catholic school just outside Newcastle West town. Our 162 pupils range in age from 4 to 13 years. The atmosphere in our school is a very happy one enhanced by a supportive parent body. This year we opened an ASD class. We also have a pre-school being run on the school premises called Killoughteen Kids.
