A grammar school principal fears any removal of its use of academic selection could set a dangerous precedent for the independence of all schools across Northern Ireland.

Enniskillen Collegiate head Elizabeth Armstrong told of her concerns yesterday after helping deliver a petition of over 7,000 names to the Assembly, calling for a reprieve for her school.

Supporters of the Collegiate, a girls’ school, are campaigning against a proposed merger with Portora Royal, a mainly boys’ school, on the other side of Enniskillen.
