Welcome to Scoil Aine Naofa, Loch Cutra, website.

Scoil Aine Naofa is a Catholic co-educational school catering for children from Junior Infants to Sixth Class.

It is situated in the parish of Beagh, approximately 6km South of Gort, Co,Galway. There has been a school on this site since the 1860’s and many distinguished teachers have graced its corridors since, most notably, perhaps Michael Cusack, founding father of the GAA. Michael was appointed the first Headmaster of Lough Cutra by Lord Gough when he was merely 20 years old.

There have been many improvements to the school over the years the latest of which was the addition of an ASD unit in 2017. Mostly recently, the Department of Education and Skills has  granted funding for the building of two 80sq metre classrooms with ensuite toilets and a new Special  Education classroom. We're at the preplanning stage. We look forward to that.

We have a current enrolment of 91 pupils, with four mainstream teachers, two Special Education Teachers and two SET teachers. We also have four SNAs and a secretary.

We endeavour to stimulate learning by offering a diverse range of activities both curricular and extra-curricular. Our aim is to create a friendly, inviting atmosphere with happy, well-adjusted pupils and highly- dedicated, motivated staff.
