Boys to be allowed into girls’ school
Boys are to be allowed into an all-girls prep school for the first time in the North Down school’s history.
Cygnet House, preparatory school for Glenlola Collegiate Grammar School in Bangor, are to allow boys in, in a relaunch for the school in time for next September’s intake, or soon after.
The Department of Education has approved the plans but Minister John O’Dowd said the move did not signal an increase in capacity and would therefore not impact on neighbouring schools.
Last year every girl who attended Cygnet House’s P7 class secured a grammar school place.
