Welcome to our School

Killoughteen N.S. is a rural, mixed, catholic school just outside Newcastle West town. Our 208 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. We opened our first ASD class (Rainbow Class) and a pre-school on the school premises called Killoughteen Kids in September 2018.
