Please see below the following links in relation to NI Screen academies for 2020- 2021.
The Boards of Governors of St Columb's College and Thornhill College have reflected carefully upon the impact of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis and the considerable disruption that this has had on our local community and in particular the education of pupils in Primary 6 since March 2020. In addition, they fully accept that there could very well be further disruption for Primary 7 pupils during the first term of the 2020-2021 academic year.
In response to these exceptional circumstances, and for this year only, the Boards of Governors and Principals of both schools have agreed that they will not use academic criteria for admission to Year 8 in September 2021.
This means that:
Each school remains committed to its own individual Catholic ethos and values and will continue to provide high quality teaching and learning, coupled with the highest standards of pastoral care. All those young people who would normally apply to be admitted to each individual school are strongly encouraged to continue to do so.
We believe that this is the right decision for our schools and local communities and we hope that this provides much needed clarity for those Primary 6 pupils and their Parents/Guardians/Carers who would like to apply for admission to our schools.
