 Announcement from The Board of Governors

Owing to the Principal’s absence due to illness the Board of Governors has confirmed that the two Vice Principals will provide the strategic leadership of the school on an interim basis. Mr Foncy McConnell will take on the responsibility of Acting Principal and Mr Anthony White will take on the responsibility of Acting First Vice Principal.

On behalf the Board, I would like to reassure parents and the wider school community that CBS Grammar School Omagh will continue to maintain the high excellent standards as demonstrated in the results which show CBS is the best performing boys school in Northern Ireland in 2014.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr Brannigan and we hope that he makes a speedy recovery.

Mr Patrick McMahon
Chairman of the Board of Governors

 Omagh CBS Presents Magical Moments from Stage & Screen


On Tuesday 24th November, Christian Brothers’ Grammar School Omagh will bring the musical and acting talents of their pupils to the stage of The Strule Arts Centre for one night only in “Magical Moments from Stage & Screen.”

We plan to capture the magic of the stage and screen by showcasing extracts from popular musicals, movies and contemporary drama. From our entire Year 8 year group capturing the mischievous nature of Oliver’s gang of pickpockets and then transporting us to the African plains in “The Lion King” to a solitary Shane Moriarty “Singing in the Rain,” this is a show not to be missed!

Amongst the many performances we will see a group of our Year 9 Performing Arts students perform “Stomp” as a junk orchestra. Who knew discarded household utensils could make such engaging music?!  No showcase of musical theatre would be complete without the rousing of the masses captured in Les Miserables and the haunting sounds of The Phantom of the Opera performed by soloists and the proficient school choir.

The talented musicians of our school orchestra will provide the vital instrumental accompaniment throughout the show.

The adroit strings group will perform “Smoke on the Water” which has featured on the soundtrack of numerous films and tv shows including The Sopranos and Point Break and will capture Boccherini’s Minuet(3rd movement)  which most famously appeared on the soundtrack of The Ladykillers starring Alec Guinness.

The talented traditional music group will bring us back to Titanic and get us tapping our feet to Lord of the Dance.  They will be in the company of a group of talented Irish dancers who will challenge Michael Flatley with the speed and precision of their steps.

Superheroes will take to the mean streets performed by a group of Year 8 Performing Arts students  who will don their capes and masks in an action packed self-penned performance.

A Level and GCSE Performing Arts students will transport us to 1950s rural county Kerry through the heated exchange of the auction scene in John B.Keane’s The Field and then fly us across the Atlantic to capture the rivalry of the Jets and Sharks in scenes from Westside Story.

The character of FBI Agent Karl Hanratty and his comrades will be emulated by Jack Higginbotham and his fellow senior students in the fast-paced number “Don’t Break the Rules” from the popular musical Catch Me If You Can.

The whole production is a truly collaborative effort with teaching staff from the Music and Performing Arts departments directing and producing a variety of acts starring almost 200 pupils and a number of staff. The school is also very fortunate to have Mrs.Dympna Mathers, an experienced dance choreographer to guide the students through the dance moves required in a variety of performances.

With other extracts too numerous to mention this promises to be an enjoyable and engaging evening of music and drama showcasing the outstanding talent of a huge number of young men from all around Tyrone!  Remember it is for one night only so book your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Tickets can be purchased directly from The Strule Arts Centre, Omagh.



 Art & Technology Exhibition

FULL STEAM AHEAD: Art and Technology Exhibition of the Class of 2015

This year saw the first of our CBS STEAM events, incorporating the Arts with the STEM subject of Technology and Engineering. Both the Art and Technology Departments teamed up to celebrate the success of our current GCSE, AS and A2 ‘A’ level in the form of an Exhibition of Works. The event was attended by parents, students and teachers on Monday 9th June 2015.All two Art rooms and the A level centre where transformed into exhibition spaces and displayed the excellent talents and efforts of our students. On display was a fascinating range of expressive and creative artworks demonstrating the wide range of specialisms on offer in the Art and Technology Departments. An eccletic exhibition was enjoyed by all, with exceptional examples of Fine Art Drawing & Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Ceramics, Graphic design and computer imaging as well as Textiles and Fashion Design. In the A Level Centre, work from our suite of GCSE subjects (Technology & Design, Construction, Engineering and Manufacturing) dominated the large space and was complimented by our AS and A2 Technology practical projects. The work that was on display accounted for 30%-50% of the overall pupil marks in their respective subjects and parents were astounded at the high quality of workmanship achieved by their sons.
