Area Based Plan Consultation-Revised Autumn 2014

The NEELB has published its Post-Primary Area Plan which includes proposals for the Magherafelt area.

Click here to see a copy of the Plan.

The Proposals for Magherafelt are found on Page 89 and include:

  • Rainey Endowed to continue as an 11-19 grammar school (865 pupils)
  • Magherafelt High School to continue as an 11-19 school (750 pupils)
  • Sperrin Integrated College to continue as an 11-19 school (660 pupils).

Many thanks to all the staff, parents, pupils, former pupils, governors and members of the local community who responded to the original consultation document; the NEELB received over 2100 responses!

Your support is greatly appreciated and has ensured that the Rainey Endowed School will remain as a non-denominational grammar school, committed to meeting the future needs of pupils in the Mid-Ulster area. Read the rest of this entry »
