Christian Brothers Grammar School, Omagh,
In June 2015 the Trustees of Christian Brothers Grammar School carried out a consultation, with the governors, staff, parents and pupils on a proposal to move away from the use of academic selection for admission to the school.
Over the past months the Trustees have carefully considered, and analysed, all responses to the consultation. Following this analysis the Trustees remain of the view that the school should embark on a phased transition away from the use of academic selection for admissions to Year 8.
Acknowledging the issues raised during the consultation, and the need for careful planning to implement this change, the Trustees are now proposing that the phasing would start for admissions to Year 8 from September 2017.
The Trustees will now write to the Education Authority requesting publication of the following Development Proposal:
Christian Brothers Grammar School, Omagh will remove the use of academic selection for its Year 8 intake on a phased basis beginning September 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter, with a view that the school will have a totally non-academically selective intake by September 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter.
A period of statutory consultation will begin once the Development Proposal is published. During this period there will be further opportunities for the school stakeholders, and the wider community, to express their views on the proposal, before a decision is made by the Minister for Education.
Any queries in regard to this proposal should be forwarded to Mr Kevin Burke at firstname.lastname@example.org or 02890333205.
On behalf of the Board of Governors, I wish to inform you of the retirement of Mr Paul Brannigan as Principal of Christian Brothers’ Grammar School, Omagh. Following a period of absence through ill-health, Mr Brannigan has informed the Board that health reasons have compelled him to take early retirement.
For thirty-three years Mr Brannigan has given loyal and faithful commitment to the school. As Principal for ten years, he provided strategic leadership in developing and maintaining the culture of academic excellence at the school. In acknowledging their profound appreciation for this lifetime of dedicated service to the entire school community at Christian Brothers’ Grammar School, Omagh, the Board of Governors also extends to Mr Brannigan their best wishes in his future retirement.
Parents and pupils can be assured that the strategic leadership given by the two vice-principals in Mr Brannigan’s absence will be sustained while a recruitment process is undertaken in the New Year
Mr Patrick McMahon
Chairman, Board of Governors
