The amalgamation of St Mary’s College, Clady and St Paul’s College, Kilrea will take effect upon or before the completion of a new building.

Commenting on the decision, Mr O’Dowd said: “This proposal will consolidate post-primary provision in south Derry, creating one sustainable school capable of meeting the educational needs, aptitudes, interests and aspirations of pupils in the area up to GCSE and post-16. The Council for Catholic Maintained Schools as the managing authority will implement the amalgamation upon completion of the new school building or sooner if possible.”
