NI Grammar School Admission criteria for
September 2022
These details have been updated.

Admission criteria for grammar schools in Northern Ireland for entrance in September 2022 have changed.

In the autumn term of 2021-2022 school year the Transfer Test - either the AQE or GL (PPTC) version has was used as part of the admissions policy for entry into year 8 by many schools. However some schools decided not to use either the AQE or GL (PPTC) Transfer Test and so those schools have developed new admission criteria for entry into Year 8 in September 2022.

 
These Grammar School admission criteria can vary greatly from school to school and you should make yourself aware of all the criteria details as they will determine which children will be admitted to this school in September 2022.
 
Make sure that you provide the school with all the information that they require as the school will use the information that you provide when making their decision about which children are admitted in September 2022.

Entrance Assessment Results

St Malachy’s College will give preference to, (apart from those who qualify for either the Special Circumstances or Special Provision procedures), those applicants awarded a grade by GL in completing the GL Entrance Assessment on Saturday 13th November 2021 or the Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment on Saturday 11th

December 2021, or any other rearranged date.


Parents/guardians/carers must state the GL GRADE achieved and attach to the On-line Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent, a copy of the statement of results.

Special Circumstances


Special Circumstances usually refers to the claim that as a result of medical or other problems an applicant’s performance in the GL Assessment was affected. Any parent/guardian/carer claiming Special Circumstances must submit an initial claim by completing form SCR in the Special Circumstances pack available from St

Malachy’s College or from its website and must submit the initial claim to St Malachy’s College by 2pm on 15th December 2021. Independent evidence in support of Special Circumstances is not required to be produced at this stage. This documentation, together with the independent, verifiable documentary evidence which corroborates the Special Circumstances claim, must be attached to the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent and include the SC1 form.


Special Provision

Special Provision may be made by the Admissions Committee of the Board of Governors for applicants:

a) who are transferring from primary schools outside Northern Ireland

b) who have received more than half of their primary education outside Northern Ireland

c) whose educational provision to date has been negatively affected by serious medical or other problems which is supported by independent verifiable documentary evidence and who have not taken the GL Assessment or its Supplementary Assessment.

d) who were entered for the GL Assessment and it took place, but the applicant was unable to sit either the GL Entrance Assessment or Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment due to COVID-19 reasons.


1 For those applicants currently in P7 in Primary Schools in Northern Ireland, claims for Special Provision should be made on Form SP1 and attached to the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent. Form SP1 is available from the College or its website. Parents wishing to claim Special Provision should also forward a copy of Form SP1 directly to St Malachy’s College by 4pm on Wednesday 23rd February 2022.

2 After this date, claims for Special Provision should be made directly to St Malachy’s College by 2pm on Monday 4th April 2022, and the relevant Education Authority Transfer Section notified. 


Further details can be found in the sections ‘Note on Special Circumstances’ and ‘Note on Special Provisions’ below.


Provisions for COVID-19 Disruption

If the GL Entrance Assessment takes place but at the time of the GL Entrance Assessment or Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment, an applicant who is entered/registered to sit the assessment is unable to sit either of these assessments due to COVID-19 reasons, the applicant may apply under Special Provision (d) to sit a

Special Provision Assessment. See Note on Special Provision below.


Information on grades and admissions in the last three years may be accessed in the College Prospectus. All pupils are asked to pay a Voluntary Contribution (currently £100 per annum).


RESPECTIVE FUNCTIONS OF THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS AND PRINCIPAL IN RELATION TO ADMISSIONS TO

THE COLLEGE

The Board of Governors draws up the admissions criteria and delegates to an Admissions Committee, which includes the Principal, the responsibility for applying these criteria. Any reference herein to the term the ‘Board of Governors’ includes any Committee or Sub-Committee appointed by the Board of Governors for the purposes of applying the Admission criteria set out herein.


ADMISSIONS CRITERIA FOR ENTRY OF PUPILS TO FORM 1 (YEAR 8) IN SEPTEMBER 2022


NOTE: IT IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PARENT/GUARDIAN/CARER OF A PROSPECTIVE PUPIL TO ENSURE THAT THERE IS SUBMITTED, EITHER ON THE ONLINE TRANSFER FORM/APPLICATION OR ITS EQUIVALENT OR TOGETHER WITH THE ONLINE TRANSFER FORM/APPLICATION OR ITS EQUIVALENT, ALL THE INFORMATION REQUIRED TO ENABLE THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS TO APPLY THE ADMISSIONS CRITERIA OF THE COLLEGE TO THE APPLICATION OF THE PROSPECTIVE PUPIL. ONLY EVIDENCE SUBMITTED EITHER ON THE ONLINE TRANSFER FORM/APPLICATION OR ITS EQUIVALENT OR ATTACHED TO THAT FORM AT THE TIME OF SUBMISSION TO THE COLLEGE FOR ADMISSION SHALL BE CONSIDERED BY THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS IN THE ALLOCATION OF A PLACE TO THE APPLICANT.


St Malachy’s College will initially consider only those applicants who have taken the GL Entrance Assessment or if relevant the Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment and who have been awarded a grade or assigned a grade pursuant to the application of the Special Circumstance or Special Provision procedures and will admit pupils based on grade achieved in the assessment or otherwise awarded.


The Board of Governors will not use as a criterion the position of preference given to the College on the Transfer Form i.e. an applicant who has chosen St Malachy’s College in any position on the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent will be considered equally with those who have put the College first.


SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES AND SPECIAL PROVISION PROCEDURES

The Board of Governors will consider applicants claiming that Special Circumstances or Special Provision exist including applicants when the GL Entrance Assessment or if relevant the Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment is not undertaken or grades are not available for Covid 19 reasons as outlined within this Admissions Criteria. These will be considered first. Where this is granted, the Board of Governors will determine, on the basis of the educational evidence available, an appropriate grade equivalent for the

applicant. Such applicants will then be considered with all other applicants who have been awarded a grade or received a grade equivalent and the admissions criteria applied.


NOTE ON SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES

Special Circumstances allow for a post examination adjustment or provision of a grade to an applicant who is eligible for consideration. If a claim for the consideration of special circumstances is made in respect of matters for which access arrangements were granted or could have been granted had they been made known to the assessment centre, the Admissions Committee may take into account the fact that the applicant was granted access arrangements or could have been granted access arrangements for those matters. Where a need or problem is identified in advance of the assessment taking place, an application for Access Arrangements should be made. Special

Circumstances should be sought only where events on the day of the assessment or factors unknown at the time are considered to have directly influenced the outcome on the day of the GL Entrance Assessment or if relevant the Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment.


NB: The existence of special circumstances DOES NOT in itself lead to automatic admission to the College. Each case is considered on its own merits by the Board of Governors.


Requests for Special Circumstances must be made by 2pm on 15th December 2021. The decision as to whether to take such circumstances into consideration will not be taken at this time by St Malachy’s College but the College will confirm receipt of the initial claim to the parent/guardian/carer. This confirmation must be attached by the parent/guardian/carer to the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent along with full, supporting documentary evidence when an application is made for post-primary transfer for the child. Circumstances relating to application for Special Circumstances must apply at the time of the Entrance Assessment and be supported by appropriate written evidence. A Special Circumstances claim will not be considered without such evidence.


Note on COVID-19

Special Circumstances will not be applied solely due to lost teaching and learning time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Lost teaching and learning is being addressed in the GL Entrance Assessment 2021 via the assessment methods and the reduction in the content that will be assessed. Specific COVID-19 impacts which are unique to the applicant may still be applicable to Special Circumstances.


It is the responsibility of parents/guardians/carers to ensure that such claims and all verifying information are included on form SC1, attached to the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent and forwarded to the College via the Education Authority by 4pm on Wednesday 23rd February 2022.


DETAILS OF MEDICAL OR OTHER PROBLEMS:

Where it is claimed that an applicant’s performance in the GL Entrance Assessment or if relevant the Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment has been affected by a medical or other problem, independent evidence of its existence must be provided to the College by attaching it to the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent. Where the problem is a medical one of short term duration which affected the applicant only at the time of the GL Entrance Assessment the College will require the production of evidence that the applicant was examined by a medical practitioner in relation to the illness at the time of the GL Entrance Assessment. This evidence should be provided on headed notepaper of the medical practitioner and signed and dated by him/her.


Where the problem is of a non-medical nature the parents/guardians must set out in the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent precise details of the problem and append any appropriate independent evidence to corroborate its existence. (Please refer to the following documents: ‘Post Primary Transfer Consortium ENTRANCE ASSESSMENT ACCESS ARRANGEMENTS POLICY’ (Section 10) and ‘Claiming Special

Circumstances – A Guide for Parents & Guardians’).


EDUCATIONAL EVIDENCE:

Sufficient objective documentary evidence must be provided by the  parents/guardians/carers applying for Special Circumstances and accompany the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent, and verified by the primary school to enable the Board of Governors to reach a decision.


At the time of completing the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent, details of the Special Circumstances and independent supporting evidence must be provided and attached to the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent.


The following information should be provided on form SC1:-


  • Records of the results of all available KS2 CAT4 (verbal and quantitative) and/or PTE/PTM results. These must be verifiable and must be signed off by the Primary School Principal. The verified results must be attached to the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent;

  • All test results should be accompanied by the name of the standardised test supplier, and be dated and verified by the primary school (eg. Signature of Principal, School stamp/headed notepaper);

  • Any other relevant educational material from the Primary School;


The Board of Governors will, when considering the weight to be given to submitted evidence, consider standardised test results as ranking in priority to other submitted evidence.


The Board of Governors may decide in relation to an applicant claiming special circumstances when the GL Assessment has taken place, that the grade which the applicant in fact achieved in the GL Assessment is the grade which the applicant would have achieved if he had sat the GL Assessment under normal circumstances.

Once a decision has been made the applicant will be considered alongside all other applicants who have been awarded a grade or received a grade equivalent and the admissions criteria applied.


Applications received under Special Circumstances will be considered on the evidence made available to the College and awarded a grade using the College’s Protocol, which is available upon request.


General Note on Special Circumstances

It is emphasised that the onus is on the parents/guardians/carers to ensure that the above information is provided by the primary school. Failure to provide such information may result in the College being unable to consider the application for Special Circumstances. Parents/guardians/carers have a statutory right to request and obtain information on their child. Further information on the rights to access pupil records is

available from the Information Commissioner’s Office or from the following website: http://www.ico.org.uk


For further information, please refer to the following policy documents: ‘Post Primary Transfer Consortium ENTRANCE ASSESSMENT ACCESS ARRANGEMENTS’ (Section 10) and ‘Claiming Special Circumstances – A Guide for Parents & Guardians’. The guidance documentation is available from the College or to download from the College website www.stmalachyscollege.com


NOTE ON SPECIAL PROVISION

Applications which fall into this category shall be considered before the consideration of the applications of those who sat the GL Entrance Assessment or if relevant the Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment under normal circumstances.


Special provision may be made by the Board of Governors for applicants:

a) who are transferring from primary schools outside Northern Ireland

b) who have received more than half of their primary education outside Northern Ireland

c) whose educational provision to date has been negatively affected by serious medical or other problems which is supported by independent verifiable documentary evidence and who have not taken the GL Assessment or its Supplementary Assessment.

d) who were entered for the GL Assessment and it took place, but the applicant was unable to sit either the GL Entrance Assessment or Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment due to COVID-19 reasons


It is the responsibility of parents/guardians/carers to provide precise reasons why the applicant did not take part in the GL Entrance Assessment or Supplementary Assessment and to ensure appropriate documentary evidence is attached to the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent.


Applicants in categories (a) & (b) above who wish to apply under Special Provision do not need to take the GL Entrance Assessment or the Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment unless their parents/guardians so wish, in which case the GL Entrance Assessment or if relevant the Supplementary GL Entrance Assessment grade obtained would also be considered.


The Board of Governors will require a suitably qualified person or body approved by the College to make an assessment of the applicant’s ability. This will be known as the Special Provision Assessment.


The Board of Governors, within the operation of its admissions criteria, will decide whether these children should be admitted on the basis that they fall within the ability range of other pupils being admitted in that year.


Parents of pupils presently enrolled in P7 wishing to claim Special Provision should complete Form SP1 available from the College or its website, stating the case for eligibility under this category, and attach to the pupil’s Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent before it is submitted to the Education Authority (Transfer Department). This should be completed by 4.00 pm on Wednesday 23rd February 2022. After this date, claims for Special Provision should be made directly to St Malachy’s College.


The Board of Governors will consider each application for Special Provision. Where this is granted, the Board of Governors will;

  • contact parent(s)/guardian(s)/carer(s) of the applicant;

  • arrange a date and time for the applicant to sit the above assessment in the College. As with the GL Assessment the Special Provision Assessment will also be marked by GL.

  • The result of the test will be converted into a grade.

  • When the grade has been assigned parents will be informed.

Where St Malachy’s College is not your first preference school and you have sat the same/acceptable Special Provision Assessment in another school, St Malachy’s College will use the results of that Special Provision Assessment in the Special Provision Procedure. Such applications will then be considered with all other applicants who have been awarded a grade or received a grade equivalent and the admissions criteria applied.


ALLOCATION OF PLACES

St Malachy’s College will give preference to those pupils for whom a grade relating to the GL Entrance Assessment method has been awarded by GL or assigned by the Board of Governors pursuant to the special circumstances/special provisions procedures. Information on the GL Entrance Assessment is available from the College, or available to download from the College website at www.stmalachyscollege.com


All pupil’s resident in Northern Ireland at the time of their proposed admission to the College will be selected for admissions before any pupil not so resident.


In order to determine which pupils will be accepted into Year 8, the following criteria will be applied in the order set down:


A Pupils who have been awarded Grade A in the GL Entrance Assessment and also those pupils to whom Special Circumstances or Special Provision apply and who on the documented evidence submitted, are in the opinion of the Board of Governors to be of comparable ability to pupils awarded Grade A.


B Pupils who have been awarded Grade B1 in the GL Entrance Assessment and also those pupils to whom Special Circumstances or Special Provision apply and who on the documented evidence submitted, are in the opinion of the Board of Governors to be of comparable ability to pupils awarded Grade B1.


C Pupils who have been awarded Grade B2 in the GL Entrance Assessment and also those pupils to whom Special Circumstances or Special Provision apply and who on the documented evidence submitted, are in the opinion of the Board of Governors to be of comparable ability to pupils awarded Grade B2.


D Pupils who have been awarded Grade C1 in the GL Entrance Assessment and also those pupils to whom Special Circumstances or Special Provision apply and who on the documented evidence submitted, are in the opinion of the Board of Governors to be of comparable ability to pupils awarded Grade C1.


E Pupils who have been awarded Grade C2 in the GL Entrance Assessment and also those pupils to whom Special Circumstances or Special Provision apply and who on the documented evidence submitted, are in the opinion of the Board of Governors to be of comparable ability to pupils awarded Grade C2.


F Pupils who have been awarded Grade D in the GL Entrance Assessment and also those pupils to whom Special Circumstances or Special Provision apply and who on the documented evidence submitted, are in the opinion of the Board of Governors to be of comparable ability to pupils awarded Grade D.


G Other pupils.


In the event of there being more candidates in any grade than places available within such grade, priority will be given in descending order to those who indicate on the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent that they are:


a) applicants who are siblings of present or past pupils enrolled in St. Malachy’s College (names anddates of attendance);


b) applicants who, at the date of their application, are the eldest boy of the family eligible to transfer to St Malachy’s College, or are the only child of the family (“of the family” will be defined in accordance with Department of Education guidance). Twins or other multiples will be treated as joint eldest. Older brothers, who at the date of the transfer application, have left mainstream post primary education or where an older brother did not have the opportunity to attend St Malachy’s College because their family has moved residence or attends a special school, will not be treated for the purposes of this criterion as the eldest boy in the family. A Certificate of verification must be completed and submitted with the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent;


c) a pupil who is entitled to Free School Meals at the date of application (“entitled to Free School meals” will mean applicants, who at the date on which they have signed their post-primary Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent, or at any date up to and including Wednesday 9th March 2022 (not later than 4pm), have communicated within their application that they are listed on the Education Authority register as entitled to Free School Meals);


d) pupils from the following contributory Primary Schools (not listed in order of preference).

e) In the event of oversubscription at the last criterion, selection for all places remaining in this category will be on the basis of the initial letter of the surname as identified on the birth certificate (if the surname has subsequently been legally changed (evidence to be provided) this new surname will be used) presented at registration for the GL Assessment by Friday 24th September 2021.

In the event of two or more identical surnames the alphabetical (randomised) order of the initial of the forenames will be used. The order is

set out below:


U, S, A, J, Y, M, T, V, F, N, I, W, G, B, E, H, R, C, P, L, O, Q, D, Z, X, K


The order was predetermined by random computerised selection, witnessed by at least three members of the Admissions Committee.


f) Should there be over-subscription at the last criterion then other applicants will be selected on the basis of age with the oldest being selected first, established by date of birth as entered on a birth certificate presented at registration for the GL Assessment.


Please Note:

When considering which children should be selected for admission, the Board of Governors will only take into account information which is detailed on or attached to the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent. Parents/Guardians/Carers should ensure that all information pertaining to their child and relevant to the school’s admissions criteria is stated on the Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent or attached to it.


DUTY TO VERIFY

The Board of Governors reserves the right to require such supplementary evidence as it may determine to support or verify information on any applicant’s Online Transfer Form/Application or its equivalent.


The Certificate of Verification for Criterion (b) is available from the College or may be downloaded from the College website.


If the requested evidence is not provided to the Board of Governors by the deadline given, this will result in the withdrawal of an offer of a place. Similarly, if information is supplied which appears to be false or misleading in any material way, the offer of a place will be withdrawn.


WAITING LIST POLICY
