Examinations Timetable May 2020



Enrolment 2020

Next Tuesday 26th sees our Open Day, where students from the surrounding primary schools will be brought in to experience a snapshot of life in secondary school.

On Thursday 28th, parents and students will get the chance to come in, have a look around, meet the teachers and enrol for 2020.

We use CAT4 testing for all of our incoming students, an online assessment that allows us get an insight into the strengths and weaknesses of each student, so we are better prepared to make sure every child reaches their educational and personal potential at Errigal College
