Newry & Kilkeel grammar schools scrap academic selection for 2022

5 Catholic grammar schools in the Newry/Kilkeel area have announced that they will not be using GL Assessment results to select pupils for 2022 the BBC has reported.

In a joint letter, the schools said the move was due to "the impact of school closure on the current P6 pupils"

The schools are;
Abbey Christian Brothers' Grammar School, Newry
Our Lady's Grammar School, Newry
Sacred Heart Grammar School, Newry
St Colman's College, Newry
St Louis Grammar School, Kilkeel

Pupils applying to these schools in 2022 will not be required to provide a GL Entrance Assessment result.
The five schools said the change is for one year only for pupils due to sit the transfer tests in December 2020 and enter the schools in September 2021.
