Camphill Primary School is a 'EA Controlled' school within the Northern Region for children between the ages of four and eleven.

It is situated in its own grounds of three acres in the Carolhill Park area, off the Toome Road in Ballymena. The original school was opened in 1967 with the school celebrating 50 years in education in 2017/18. The original school has since been replaced with a modern, state of the art building which opened in January 2007 with a further extension completed in June 2013.  The building is designed and equipped to the highest of standards to provide the very best learning and working environment for our children and our staff.

The school has a wide catchment area with children attending the school from the surrounding Ballymena area. The school admits 60 pupils into Primary One each year and has a school enrolment figure of approximately 400 pupils. Each year group consists of two straight classes from P1- P7 with approximately 30 pupils in each class.

The school building consists of 15 classrooms clustered around central resource areas, a large Main Hall and a separate Canteen/Dining Hall. In addition, other rooms are utilised for Learning Support, Instrumental tuition, group activities etc… There are extensive grounds surrounding the school including playgrounds, a large playpark, outdoor covered resource areas, a football pitch and grass play areas. The development of 'Environmental Gardens' also enhances the outdoor learning for all our pupils.

The Principal is assisted by a teaching Vice-Principal, a further 16 teachers, 10 classroom assistants, 3 school secretaries, a building supervisor, 3 cleaners, 8 supervisory staff, a cook and 4 kitchen staff plus two crossing patrol men. All staff are committed to working as part of a team and are conscientious, hardworking and dedicated to the school and its pupils.
