Records for Collone Primary School in the Parish of Lisnadill date back to 1861, although the school existed as a National School prior to this. Ever since its opening, the school at Collone has been co-educational.

Attendance at the school has been as high as 130 students but at present the register indicates a regular attendance of approximately 50 students.
In 1961 the school building was renovated and an additional classroom added. Other developments at that time included a physical education store, staff room, new toilets and a caretaker's store.
The first mobile classroom was acquired in 1966 and a second one added in the spring of 2001.

In 2003 the school was looking forward to further development and hoped to improve the facilities of the building to include a games hall and tuck shop. The school closed in 2008.
