School Facilities

Parkview School is a controlled co-educational school providing specialist nursery, primary and post-primary education for pupils with severe learning difficulties and those with a range of  educational needs that can best be met within a special school environment.

The current school enrolment is 160 pupils in the age range 3-19 years.

The present school building, located on the outskirts of the city of Lisburn, was opened in 1996.

A specially designed Extended Education Centre was opened in 2001 to facilitate the implementation of  the school’s programme for pupils aged 16-19 years.  Two further classrooms were added in 2009 to facilitate the increasing demand for places.
