2nd Round of NI Specialist Schools

13 More NI Specialist Schools

I wanted to put up the 13 new Northern Ireland Specialist Schools which were selected in May in the second round of applications. The Department of Education Northern Ireland (DENI) invited applications for the 2nd phase of selection. From the DENI site:

“Each school was required to submit the following:-

  • A four-year School Development Plan (SDP).
  • A four-year Community Development Plan (CDP) that involves developing partnerships with at least 5 partner schools. This should be a mix of primary and post-primary schools, including at least two post-primary schools.
  • Evidence of, or evidence of how a school intends to raise, at least £25,000 of unconditional private sector sponsorship
  • A bid for a one-off support grant and an outline of how this would be used.”

So, long overdue congratulations Party to the following schools and their selected specialisation:
