Joint Statement re Academic Selection
Joint Statement from the Boards of Governors of the Christian Brothers’ Grammar School and Loreto Grammar School Omagh
We wish to provide the following information to Parents of Primary Six pupils in relation to the criteria for admission to our schools for September 2021.
“In light of the unique circumstances presented by the impact of Covid 19, and for one year only, the Boards of Governors of the Christian Brothers’ Grammar School Omagh and Loreto Grammar School will not use academic selection criteria or a Transfer assessment for pupils wishing to gain admission to Year 8 in September 2021.
Our schools will review and publish admissions criteria in the Winter term in line with the timetable for Post Primary Transfer 2021 published by the Education Authority.
This step should help to reduce some immediate concerns in education at this time for Primary 6 pupils, their parents and staff in Primary schools in this area.”
From the Boards of Governors of:
Christian Brothers’ Grammar School, Omagh
Loreto Grammar School, Omagh
