Spa N.S. is a Catholic School under the patronage of the Bishop of Kerry Ray Browne. It is situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Spa approximately three miles west of Tralee town , We are a co-educational school catering for children from junior infants to sixth class. Our school has eight mainstream classes, an administrative principal, a full time learning support teacher, shared teachers for resource teaching and two special needs assistants. At present there are 208 pupils on roll.

Our dedicated and dynamic teaching staff constantly strive to provide the children of our community with a caring, happy and secure learning environment where their intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral, social, and cultural needs are identified and nurtured. We are proud of our high academic standards to which we have always aspired. Our pupils are given every opportunity to experience all aspects of a broad and balanced school curriculum.

Spa N.S is a community where pupils, parents and teachers collaborate and work in partnership for the children. When parents decide to send their children to our school, they are entering a relationship that has a shared sense of purpose and mutual respect. In keeping with the principles of education, our school is democratically run by our Board of Management. The involvement of parents is sought and encouraged both at Board and Parent Association level. We have an extremely supportive Parents Association who get involved in many positive initiatives every academic year.

Our school motto is ‘Ní neart go cur le chéile’ (Strength in Unity) All members of our school community try to live out this motto in their day to day encounters with each other and to work in partnership to ensure Spa N.S  is a warm and welcoming environment where children are enthused with a love of learning, where childhood is valued and where confidence, skills and knowledge are developed in our pupils to face the challenges of the 21st century.
