Pesky pupils put Sullivan Upper School up for sale

Cash-starved sixth form pupils at Sullivan Upper School in Holywood have put their school up for sale - as a joke - to help fund their university places.

Headmaster Chris Peel got a scare after when he spotted For Sale signs sticking up out of the manicured lawns of the school, which local boy and golfing champ Rory McIlroy attended.

Head boy Adam Lyttle, who is heading to Durham University in England said their prank is a long-standing rite of passage. “It’s traditional for the school-leavers to play a few pranks and we thought seeing Sullivan put up for sale would give the headmaster a panic.”

“We love the school and we have enjoyed our time there but our university fees are so high we had to do something to get the money. So all good offers will be considered,” he quipped in the Sun newspaper.
