St Mary's grammar, Belfast scraps transfer test for 2021/22

St Mary's Christian Brothers Grammar School, Belfast will not use the PPTC's Entrance Assessment (GL) results to select pupils for 2022 the BBC has reported.

St Mary's has become the first grammar school to decide not to use transfer tests for a second year.

In a statement to BBC News NI, the board of governors of St Mary's Grammar said "Due to the current challenges faced by these young people, the board of governors have decided it will not take part in the PPTC transfer tests and will not use an academic selection criterion for 2022/23 school year."

The governors said the school would use other entrance criteria for 2022, which would be "published in due course".
