Transfer Test Arrangements for Admission to Year 8 for September 2022
The Board of Governors of the Christian Brothers Grammar School, Omagh, has issued the following statement in relation to transfer arrangements for admission to Year 8 for September 2022.
Dear Parents, Guardians and Carers
The Board of Governors has considered the impact of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, the significant disruption to the education of pupils currently in Primary Six and the prospect that there may be a similar interruption to learning during the first term of the 2021-2022 academic year when these pupils are in Primary Seven.
In response to these unprecedented circumstances and to provide early clarity to families and schools, the Board of Governors has decided that academic criteria will not be used for admission to Year 8 in September 2022.
This means that:
- The Board of Governors will not use the outcomes from the GL Entrance Assessment or other academic criteria as part of Year 8 admissions criteria for September 2022.
- The Board of Governors of Omagh CBS has temporarily amended the admissions criteria to the school for the 2021-2022 academic year and these criteria will remain in place for the 2022-2023 academic year, subject to annual review.
- The admissions criteria for entry to Year 8 in September 2022 will be published in accordance with the guidelines provided by the Education Authority.
From the Board of Governors of the Christian Brothers Grammar School, Omagh.
