NI Grammar School Admission criteria for
September 2024

Admission criteria for grammar schools in Northern Ireland for entrance in September 2024 will have changed.

The previous Transfer Tests - either the AQE or GL (PPTC) version has been replaced by the SEAG Transfer Test. Almost all grammar schools will be using the results in the SEAG Transfer Tests as one of many criteria used as part of the admissions policy for entry into year 8 (first form).

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 2024.
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 2024.

Enniskillen Royal Grammar School


Enniskillen Royal Grammar School a brief history.

Enniskillen Royal Grammar School opened on 1 September 2016 and was formed when Portora Royal School and the Enniskillen Collegiate Grammar School were amalgamated to form the new school. The merger was not without problems as there was a lot of local opposition which eventually ended in the high court in a bid to prevent the merger. However, the high court bid failed and on 30th June 2016 both schools were closed and reopened on 1st September 2016 as the new Enniskillen Royal Grammar School. Currently operating on two sites there are plans to move to one site on the current Lough Shore site in Enniskillen town.

Enniskillen Royal Grammar School uses the new SEAG Single Entrance Transfer Test results as part of its intake criteria into year 8.
