Good Morning Ladies & Gentlemen,


Happy New Year.  


The Entrance Criteria for St. Patrick’s Grammar School for September 2022 will be available on the EA website from 12th January 2022, and how to apply to Post Primary Schools is via the Education Authority Portal this year. I would advise visiting the EA Post Primary Admissions site for information on the post-primary application process. The Online Portal opens on Tuesday 1st February and remains live until 23rd February 2022.


If you are interested, Mr McCann is hosting an Entrance Question & Answer night virtually on Wednesday on 26th January 2022 at 7.00pm. Parents can register to attend this session by emailing me ( before 12noon on Friday 21st January 2022 confirming attendance and any submitting questions for Mr McCann to address in his presentation.


A link will be emailed to you 48 hours prior to the virtual event.


We will be sharing this information with those registered to sit the GL Assessment at our school, on social media and in the local press, but acknowledge that students from your school may have sat the Entrance Assessments elsewhere.
