Admissions to Pre-School, Primary and Post Primary Schools are administered by the Transfer and Open Enrolment Section. The Section provides guidance to Principals/Boards of Governors of all Schools and Leaders/Management Committees of Playgroups on Admission Criteria to be used when selecting pupils. The Board publishes information for parents/guardians in a series of booklets by District Council Area covering Pre-School, Primary and Post-Primary Schools.
The following booklets and application forms can be downloaded from Transfer & Open Enrolment within the Publications Folder:
Pre-School Education and Admission Arrangements - A Guide for Parents/Guardians
Primary Education and Admission Arrangements - A Guide for Parents/Guardians
Secondary Education and Changing Schools at Eleven - A Guide for Parents/Guardians
Post-Primary Schools Open
Days/Evenings for Parents/Guardians and Pupils can be located

Index of Schools and Open Days/Evenings for Parents
Parents/Guardians who feel that a school has not applied its published Criteria correctly have a right of appeal. The appeal Tribunal is independent of the Board but the Clerk of the Tribunal can be contacted through the Section. Similarly parents/guardians have a right of appeal to an Independent Tribunal against the expulsion of a pupil. The Section will also facilitate the hearing of these appeals.
Parents/Guardians or Schools who wish to discuss any of these matters should contact the Head or Deputy Head of Transfer & Open Enrolment as detailed above.
