A second Catholic grammar school has said it intends to run an independent entrance exam. St Michael’s Boys College, Enniskillen, joins Lumen Christi in Londonderry in apparently rejecting advice from Catholic bishops – as the Derry Journal reported – although the bishops have previously expressed concern at the lack of clarity from the Department and the Minister.

Principal Eugene McCullough said they made the decision in the absence of any definitive and agreed plan. However, the school has not given details of what sort of test it would run. The principal of a local primary school confirmed that the grammar school had written with news of the plan and said the Department of Education “needs to get its act together”.
Any sign of that summit yet?
