We have 87 places in our Year 1 classes which have children from all across Bangor and from a wide range of nurseries and playgroups.
In order to choose who gets a place we apply the following criteria:
In the event of over-subscription in any of the above criteria preference will be given, in the order set down, to children on the following basis:
(a) Bangor Central Integrated Primary School listed as first preference.
In the event of over-subscription in sub criteria (a), children will be selected for admission on the basis of the initial letter(s) of their surname (as recorded on the birth certificate) in the order set out below:
L G Mc P C K V Q U S O H J Z F E D R I Y A X N B W M Mac T
This order was determined by random selection.
In the event of surnames beginning with the same initial letter the subsequent letters of the surname will be used in alphabetical order. In the event of two identical surnames, the alphabetical order of the letters of the forename will be used (as recorded on the birth certificate)
Parents are warmly invited to contact the school office or Principal if you need further information or assistance in the completion of the application.
As an integrated school we apply the criteria to each of the following groups as we aspire to have a balance of
40% from the Protestant tradition,
40% from the Catholic tradition and
20% from other traditions / non-religious backgrounds.
Applications for Year 1 places are made via the Education Authority's online portal. Provisional information can be found below. We will continue to update this page as more information becomes available.
