Minister agrees co-educational provision at Cygnet House Preparatory School, Bangor

4 April, 2012 - by John O'Dowd


Education Minister, John O’Dowd, has approved a development proposal for Cygnet House Preparatory School at Glenlola Collegiate Grammar School, Bangor. 

It has been agreed that Cygnet House will become co-educational with effect from 31 August 2012 or as soon as possible thereafter. The co-educational status would only apply to Cygnet House and not to Glenlola Collegiate Grammar School. 

Commenting on the decision, John O’Dowd said: “This proposal is not to increase the preparatory department’s capacity and hence, due to the numbers likely to be involved, should not have a significant impact on other primary schools in the Bangor area.
