Celebrating 25 years of delivering Integrated Education across west and south Belfast

On 1 September 1993 Cranmore Integrated Primary School opened the doors for the first time to admit the first 37 pupils at Adelaide Park, Lisburn Road, Belfast.


The school was led by founding Principal, Mrs Helen Hamilton who literally moved mountains to ensure the school was ready for the first day of the new term. With a dedicated staff of three and with the support of the parents the school was quickly established and continued to grow and blossom.


Adelaide Park will always hold precious memories for those who attended and for Mrs Hamilton and her staff team. The success of the pioneering work of the founding Principal can be evidenced in the thriving school which is now located on Finaghy Road North.


We look back to our past and are thankful and look forward to the future with continued hope of providing our entire school community with opportunities to promote peace, reconciliation and true community cohesion.


We are thrilled and delighted to have the opportunity of celebrating the 25th birthday of our school and will be planning different events throughout the year to mark this milestone event.
