Video: Transfer test mix-up - Magherafelt principal responds

The principal of Rainey Endowed School in Magherafelt said today that his “sincere thoughts” are with the families and pupils impacted by the test marks mix-up.

Thirty four primary seven pupils who received the wrong results for their entrance test to the grammar school have now been given the correct marks.

Speaking to the MAIL Mr Mark McCullough stressed that it was not the Rainey’s fault and the school will be writing to the families.

He said GL Assessment had admitted full responsibility for the whole process, which has been blamed on a technical fault.
