Post-Primary Education (11 - 18 Years)

At the age of 11 years children normally transfer from primary education to post primary education.
POST PRIMARY

The Board publishes ‘Transfer 2014 A Guide for Parents’ which contains details of the transfer procedure, post primary schools in the Southern Education and Library Board’s area and their admissions criteria. This Guide is distributed via schools to the parents of all P7 pupils.

For those children who are not transferring to grammar schools, transfer may be to a secondary school which caters for children aged 11-16 or 11-18 or to a Junior High School under the Two-Tier System which exists in Craigavon. Under the Two-Tier System, (also known as the Dickson Plan) the majority of pupils in the Craigavon Borough Council Area and parts of Armagh City and District Council Area attend Junior High Schools for 3 years before transferring to other schools to complete their compulsory education in Key Stage 4.

'The Guide for Parents' for admission in September 2014 may be downloaded below.
