New governors appointed to failing school

Close

Two additional members are being appointed to the board of governors of a school in Co Antrim after it was strongly criticised in an inspection report.

The Belfast Telegraph revealed in March that the principal of Crumlin Integrated College — Dr Annabel Scott — had been removed from the school following the publication of a hard-hitting Education and Training Inspectorate (ETI) report.

Poor teaching standards, exam results below the Northern Ireland average, inadequate special needs provision, serious shortcomings in pastoral care and major deficiencies in management were all flagged in an inspection at the school in January.

The school will be in the red by £170,000 at the end of this financial year. The Education Department announced the two new school governors.
