With a Fresh Start Crumlin Integrated College Can Do It.
Results of Crumlin Integrated College exceed those of SEVEN of the alternative schools to which local pupils travel. We have seen amazing exam success over the past year – A-C passes up from 53% - 61%. This makes the College incredibly competitive by comparison to the array of alternative schools which young people must travel miles to attend.A shared school in Crumlin pulls the whole community together – school buildings are used outside formal education for sport, youth clubs, and church groups – exactly what the Department is calling for under its sustainable schools policy. More than this however, a shared school in Crumlin sends out the right message about the town and the community.Around five and a half thousand people live in Crumlin. It is geographically distinct from Antrim, Lisburn, Glengormley and Belfast and infrastructure is poor. 1143 Pupils take a bus each day to schools elsewhere at a cost of around £750 per pupil per year (£794,764). Crumlin’s deficit is less than this and much will be written off.
Previous consultation on a Shared Management School received unequivocal support from all areas – pupils, parents, governors, CCMS, Transferors, NEELB – this fact simply cannot be ignored.
Where are those plans now?
