114. Better opportunities

shared (e.g.. Drama for schools that don't have it.) Primary school
projects (salter sterling) that's all though.
classes and sporting tournaments
is a good idea if a subject that a pupil really wishes to do is not
available if a school doesn't have their own facilities and another
school does, why wouldn't they share.
facilities are shared, classes are sometimes shared.
Senior High school does occupational studies in the Southern Regional

126. Cross Community
trips. Sharing sports facilities. Pupils come for some classes eg.

with other schools

135. Don't know
136. Don't really
137. Due to MLP
(Magherafelt Learning Partnership) our school collaborates with other
schools in the Magherafelt area such as classes and allowing schools
to use our schools facilities.
138. Due to our
school not offering all subjects we collaborate with Omagh South West
College and St. Ciarans Ballgawley - offering subjects we don't have.
139. For A-level,
people from different schools come to our school to have an opportunity
of doing a subject that they want to learn, that is not offered in
their own school.
140. For AS and
A2 pupils who cant do their preferred subject at our school can do
it at a different school or tech.
141. For example,
we have numerous different schools take part in our Christmas, they
also get together and do fund raising/charity work coming up to Christmas,
and we also do exchange programmes.
142. For low demand
classes in our school we may be sent to take this class in one of
the nearby schools and vice-versa. We put on a play with Campbell
College every year. Primary schools are invited to come and see a
play by the drama department.
143. Four post
- primary schools within a fairly small area - some of the schools
teach different subject or are specialised in different subjects so
it makes sense to allow pupils to travel between schools in order
to get the best possible education
144. Further education
colleges don't generally share classes as they have good enough facilities
in each campus.
145. Good to mix
with other people. New opportunities. Perhaps you for college/working
environment where there are a lot of different people.
146. Gove the
opportunity to pupils from other schools to access subjects not available
in their own school. Share a school pitch for other uses outside of
147. Haven't been
at the school that long to witness it yet.
148. Having a
sixth form our school mixes with two other schools to widen the choices
149. I always
see lots of pupils from other schools using my schools facilities.
150. I am not
involved in sharing with other schools but I know people in my year
who take class in other schools and other people from other schools
who come to my school to do classes that I do not do.
151. I attend
a grammar schools which it concentrates largely on exam results and
the pupils futures and sharing with other schools could take up to
much time to regards to finishing module courses etc. it would also
cost money for transport to other schools and back.
152. I attend
an integrated college which is not only encourages integration of
religious differences but also ability levels.
153. I believe
this because I attend Saint Marys grammar school (CBGS), who share
their pool and other facilities with other schools.
154. I believe
this because my school makes time to make sure that our pupils and
pupils from other school get along, and learn together.
155. i do not
know what that is
156. I don't
go to school anymore, so I don't really know that question.
157. I don't go
to school no more so I'm not aware of it.
158. I don't know.
159. I don't
know what we could do but I know we haven't.
160. I don't really
mind this, as my school is part of the learning community in my area
it allows the A level classes to combine from different schools in
one classroom. It provides the chance for pupils to obtain an education
in a subject that they may not be offered in their own school.
161. I don't see
pupils from other schools very often.
162. I don't think
my school does a lot of sharing. We do some collaborated classes which
means a school comes to us for some classes and we go there for some
classes. But apart from that we don't do anything else like this.
163. I don't think
my school shares anything with other schools other than the language
164. I don't
think they share much with other schools as I have never shared resources
with other schools or shared a class with other pupils from different
165. I don't
participate and i dont see others do it.
166. I go to St
Patricks grammar school and for A Levels we can choose subjects from
the schools beside us, I go to my previous school St Marys to one
of my A Levels which I really enjoy. Also our school and the De La
Salle share sports facilities
167. I have left
school but I go to college now. Although in my previous school we
done a lot of sharing with every school that was close to ours.
168. I have met
some of these people at my school.
169. I have never
been involved in an event with another school, nor heard of one happening.
170. I have no
classes/interaction with pupils with other schools.
171. I have not
been involved in other schools.
172. I have only
every seen two or three pupils come over to our school for lessons.
Also the only facility we share is our football pitch.
173. I have seen
my school share facilities and classes with some schools in the area.
174. I haven't
really thought about it our school has good computer facilities etc.
175. I never been
involved in anything with other schools
176. I never hear
or see anything of this and if so I would pay more interest.
177. I never see
any other school pupils at my school.
178. I often see
other school students at our school, doing subjects for A Level that
weren't available at their own school.
179. I often
see people from other schools using our training facilities.
180. I often see
pupils from other schools in my classes, and I know pupils from my
school go to do classes in other schools.
181. I see students
from the other local schools walking to class regularly. So I know
my school is in collaboration. I am a collab student in one of my
subjects and we get in our taxi when other pupils from other schools
are getting out.
182. I think it
does a bit of sharing, not much. I don't think my school does enough
so we can share. If we do share its once every 3 years if even. If
we where given the opportunity to share more I know we would take
183. I think it
is because of my school locality.
184. I think my
school does a lot of sharing with other schools because pupils from
the nearby protestant school study subjects that may not be available
in their school.
185. I think my
special school could benefit from pupils being allowed to sit in other
classes at another school e.g. languages.
186. I think our
school does a lot of sharing as we are part of a shared learning community,allowing
children from other schools to come to our school to study whatever
they want. We also go to neighbouring schools for talks and classes
187. I think that
our school does as much as it can seeing it is a fluent Irish school
and there is not many secondary schools nearby.
188. I think that
school is trying to get used to that sometimes we'll join other school
or they will join us.
189. I think the
pupils are too different from other pupils and wouldn't get along.
190. I think there
are more ways in which we can communicate with other schools on a
more regular basis through joint activities etc.
191. I think there
isn't any need for it where we are and that what's small needs to
192. I think they
like to create and maintain friendships with different schools. Help
each other out which will lead the children by good example in their
lives too. To mix children with all different backgrounds and religions,
this will prevent us from getting involved in matters that occurred
in the past. By mixing, we will all find out we are all the same people.
193. I think this
as in our first few years of school we would share a lot of projects
with schools near us. Also in year 13, pupils from the school we are
paired with come to our school for classes which aren't available
at their own.
194. I think
this as my school has sporting facilities in which other pupils from
different school's use. (e.g. rowing boats) and you also have the
choice to come to our school to join certain classes (such as music.)
195. I think this
as when I was in my school we never got to mix with any other school
to do classes.
196. I think
this because it is good to share with other people.
197. I think this
because lots of A-level subjects in my school are joined with other
schools. I am studying Spanish which has students from 3 different
schools. It is taught in my school and in another school.
198. I think this
because our school doesn't offer other schools the opportunity to
come to our school from my own knowledge.
199. I think this
because our school has a system where people form other schools can
come to our school to learn any subjects they dont have the oppurtunity
to learn in there own school
200. I think
this because our school is taught to share with everyone.
201. I think this
because pupils come to our school to be taught, and vice versa
202. I think this
because when I was in secondary school we did not have any sharing
with other schools at all.
203. I think this
is because I am in classes with students from other schools and I
see other pupils walking around the school.
204. I think
this is because my school had other facilities for other schools with
205. I think
this is because no one really came to my school we always had to go
206. I think this
is to promote equality and to allow the pupils to meet new friends,
also to help the pupils mix with others and to prepare them for further
education. (universities are integrated)
207. I went to
an all girls school and sometimes we had a boys school coming over
to do activities. Some girls had difficulties doing this I think its
because there are boys.
208. I went to
an integrated school, sharing with everyone is fun.
209. if a class
cant be timetabled to your needs we would go to some one of the local
schools and also if our school does have a subject
210. If we do
not get the opportunity to study a specific subject we can travel
to different schools which are studying it.
211. If you have
a day of fun we would invite the same year from a different school,
either the school is one religion, or special need it gives us time
to interact with different people.
212. I'm currently
Doing A Levels and in some subjects there are collaboration this is
pupils from other schools coming to do subjects my school does that
their school doesn't. Also pupils from my school go to different schools/colleges
to do subjects my school doesn't.
213. I'm not sure,
I think that maybe sharing classes takes a lot of organisation and
agreement between schools. The time out of my classes too go elsewhere
for projects may mean I miss work, also if the class I'm going to
is at a different stage in the course or a different board, it wouldn't
be beneficial to me. Although I think a little school sharing would
be beneficial but not all the time.
214. I'm not sure,
my school may deem it as a bad idea, having other schools using our
facilities and equipment.
215. I'm unsure.
216. In 6th year
we have the opportunity to go to another all girl school to study
other subjects. We also have boys coming from the local all boys school
to do collaborative subjects. We also being an all girls school do
school musicals every year with the local all boys school.
217. In junior
school, some groups got to do cross-community projects and outings
but I was never picked for any. We do not share any facilities with
other schools and if we need better sports ones we use church halls,
local leisure centre and local pitches.
218. In lower
and upper sixth we get a bus to our partnered school and have classes
with boys and like wise for them.
219. In lower
six languages, music and technology are shared between schools.
220. In my area
there is only one other school that teach our age group. However both
schools have all the facilities needed. There is enough pressure on
our GCSE's people don't need to do projects that take you out of class
while in preparation for your exams.
221. In my area,
classes are offered at different schools and some are shared so that
a larger range of subjects can be provided to students. There are
also after-school courses which student of my ages could participate
in, no matter what school they attend. Other projects are also organised
between schools, such as our cross community fundraising choir last
222. In my school
we go to the nearest school to receive lessons in Psychology and pupils
also attend our school for English lessons. The nearby primary school
would also frequently use our facilities.
223. In my school
we share classes, equipment and teachers. It's a nice school as it
teaches understanding and we have no problem with race, religion or
gender. The sharing process allows new friendships to flourish and
I'm glad to say our school and the one we mix with are part of this
224. In my school
we take pupils from other schools who cant do a subject for a level's
and they can come and study it at our school, depending on if it fits
225. In my secondary
school yes. However in my current grammar school very little if ever.
My take on it is that money is one of the key reasons why they do
26. In my year
a number of different pupils come to our school from another school.
In comparison our school goes to other schools for a few classes as
227. In our school
, we study many languages and the local all boys grammar school come
over and study French and Spanish with us. We also have days where
many local schools come to our school and we hold different activities
for us to get to know each other better.
228. In our school
we do a lot of cross community events. Our school is heavily involved
with a charity called "The Spirit of Enniskillen Trust", it allows
young people to come together and talk about their differences. We
do a lot of programmes with them and the schools in my area.
229. In our school
we have classes with other schools for A-Level subjects.
230. In our school,
Lurgan College, we have pupils from St. Michaels school who come to
our school for enrichment classes such as Accountancy and Critical
Thinking and pupils from our school would also go to theirs. We also
have a close relationship with Lurgan JH and Craigavon SH. Lurgan
College has obtained some of the countries top results over the years
and the fact that John O'Dowd wants to change the Dixon Plan in the
Craigavon area is a joke based on how good it has evidently worked.
231. In our school,
we are currently involved in some way with at least 3 schools. They
participated in a school production and others come to class to study
subjects not available at their own schools.
232. Inst shares
sports facilities and they do joint theatre productions.
233. It allows
people in other schools to do subjects they want. Our school goes
to grammar or technical college to do desired subjects!
234. It allows
pupils from other schools to come to do some subjects such as drama
235. It brings
students from other schools into our school to allow them to take
classes they would not be able to take otherwise.
236. It collaborates
with 2 other schools in the area, sharing subjects at AS/A2 level.
237. It did a
lot of cross-school activities, it also ran SEP classes to help other
pupils that were not learning as well as they should have been.
238. It does not
share any facilities or have shared classes.
239. It does some,
there are many schools in my area and they tend to share with each
other more. My school offers some A-level subjects which the other
Catholic secondary school does not. Other schools have better sports
facilities which can be shared. My schools facilities are good and
adequate for its pupils and often shares with primary schools and
schools for those with disabilities rather than secondary schools.
240. It doesn't
have enough facilities to share with other schools. I think it only
caters for our school pupils.
241. It enables
others to complete projects and facilities where needed that they
don't have in their own school. Therefore I didn't mind sharing.
242. It gives
a wider variety of subjects which can be studied.
243. It gives
us the opportunity to do things we cant usually do.
244. It has a
sufficient number of students and has all the facilities necessary.
245. It has different
pupils from different schools that come and do subjects in our school.
246. It has good
facilities and several schools come and use these we often do exchanges
with schools nearby
247. It hasn't
been given a lot of opportunities to do so
248. It is a college.
249. It is a new
250. It is already
a large school with lots of pupils. We have all the facilities we
251. It is educationally.
252. It is open
to new pupils joining especially in lower and upper sixth form. It
opens up it facilities such as the swimming pool and holds a university
convention in its sports hall every year for schools to come and visit.
253. It is part
of the Ballymena learning together scheme, which means pupils come
to out school for lessons and we go to theirs if the subject is not
available in our school.
254. It is too
focused on getting good grades, that we never have the opportunity
to go on school trips or mix with other schools.
255. It shares
classes and things but I'd like to do projects and get to know people
256. It shares
facilities with other schools and it allows people from other schools
to come and do some subjects in our school.
257. It shares
the likes of computer areas and drama theatre and also does other
subjects some schools don't.
258. It takes
a lot of organising and we are a big school so our facilities are
being used a lot of the time.
259. It works
closely with the neighbouring schools to provide classes for students
that are not offered in my school.
260. It would
be better if our school mixed with other schools so we could socialise
261. It's a learning
experience, students enjoy it.
262. It's already
collaborating with two schools.
263. Its often
inconvenient and I think my school prides itself with its reputation
of a prestigious grammar school and prefers not to mix.
264. Its part
of the Foyle leaning community and so pupils can travel to our school
to study certain subjects and pupils from our school can also travel
to another school.
265. Iv been on
a number of projects involving other schools in my area.
266. Iv never
known our school to share equipment and have seen very few people
from other schools there.
267. Iv never
saw another pupil from another school in my school. They didn't seem
to be inter school sports competitions at my school.
268. just my opinion
269. Lack of facilities,
teachers for different subjects and lack of money to spend on resources
270. Lack of resources
in my school means we have to go to other schools to use their resources.
Going to another school allows us to participate in classes that aren't
available in my school.
271. Limited option
of shared classes in new subjects. Not a widely used option by pupils
from my school.
272. Mainly with
Bangor Grammar, preform in plays together as they need female actors.
273. Make new
friends gives everyone a chance to mix
274. Many classes
are integrated with another school.
275. Many teachers
in my school work in different campuses around the provenance and
therefore are sharing their skills and resources.
276. Maybe they
want to make new friends
277. Money- other
schools can not afford to offer the same amount of subjects to their
pupils. Fermanagh Learning Community - other schools are offering
subjects as well. Cross-community - Because of the troubles it is
a great incentive to get Protestant and Catholics together.
278. More GCSE
choices - wider career choices to fit different interests of pupils.
No discrimination against people who aren't as good at some subjects.
279. More pupils
from other schools would come to our school more than we go to there's.
They are getting a better advantage.
280. Music, French,
technology and Irish are all subjects that are shared with other schools.
281. My college
shares a lot of classes with other schools in Enniskillen. It also
shares our sport facilities.
282. My college
shares with the other colleges in the area. Newry, Bainbridge, Lurgan.
283. My current
school only has consortium classes and does a few integrating projects
with other schools
284. My last school
shared a lot of facilities but I would mind that I had worked hard
to get into this school and if another school closed those pupils
could get into my school with no effort.
285. My past secondary
school wouldn't share anything with another school as they think they're
too good for anyone else.
286. My previous
school seemed to do a lot more, but perhaps that is because they where
in the city and now my school is in a small town.
287. My previous
school shared sports facilities with another local school of different
religion also students from the other school would attend some of
our classes and be with us at dinner.
288. My school
(Glastry College) collaborates with Glenlola, Strangford College,
tech and others to provide us with subjects that our school doesn't

for all schools in the area.

allows pupils from other schools in the area, to come and study different
A-Levels that are unavailable to them at their school.
294. My school
allows pupils from several different schools to come to our school
and learn subjects that are not available in their school, and vice
295. My school
and three surrounding schools all share facilities and allow cross
school subject choice e.g. all four schools offer all pupils to do
subjects in each of the schools.
296. My school
believe that it is very beneficial to work with other schools to help
close the segregation of ethnic groups and religions in my city.
297. My school
can be very full of itself and we tend to stick to ourselves.
298. My school
collaborates with a number of other schools for particular classes
from year 11 and onward.
299. My school
collaborates with two other schools in the town so pupils from there
come over to our school as well as we go over to do the subjects my
school doesn't provide.
300. My school
continuously hosts events, talks, and extra curricular activities
of which other schools are allowed to attend, and have done so previously.
Other schools are also allowed to take classes in ours that theirs
perhaps doesn't offer at a GCSE or A-
301. My school
didn't do a lot of sharing with other schools, I don't know why this
302. My school
didn't have very much equipment or facilities to share
303. My school
does a lot of sharing because it builds up relationships with other
people so we can get to know them.
304. My school
does a lot of work in the community with people with all abilities.
305. My school
does a wide variety of subjects involving other schools and some schools
also allow us to study subjects at their school

does projects where pupils help special needs people
308. My school
does share a lot as there are many different secondary schools which
come to my college on a Friday.
309. My school
does very little activites with other schools. We have some pupils
who come to study an A level subjust in our school which their school
does not offer however i have never had these pupils in my class,
they have always been in other peoples cla
310. My school
doesn't really come together at all with other schools.
311. My school
doesn't really mix with protestant schools which I totally disagree
with. They claim they have "no money" or "no time" for out of school
312. My school
gets involved with a number of secondary and grammar schools by sharing
facilities and for subjects. The school also gets involved with a
number of primary schools for a number of reasons.
313. My school
has a collaborative learning programme where we send students to do
subjects in another local school. My school does a lot of sport and
would share facilities and do tournaments with other schools. We do
a lot of charity work with others schools.
314. My school
has a new building and new facilities(ICT suit, gym facilities, music
facilities etc.) so it makes sense for other schools to be able to
use these. At AS Level onwards pupils from a nearby school come for
classes that they don't have in their school. also at GCSE, pupils
from other schools come for GCSE MUSIC
315. My school
has all it needs they require.
316. My school
has an excellent standard of education and this is quite independent
of other schools.
317. my school
has joined with the local schools for charity work, cross community
318. My school
has many good facilities that people enjoy using. An example of this
is the new 3G pitch for sporting activities and brings in some money
when people rent it, to improve our school. The school wants to make
a good impression on sharing with other schools and know it is the
correct thing to do.
319. My school
has set up cross-community projects with schools close to us and faraway
from us and I think this has helped develop friendships and relationships
with other students of different beliefs and religions.
320. My school
have mixed classes with another school from another religion in gcse
classes and a-level classes there is also mixed sports teams and art
321. My school
I went to was joined to another school in the next town. They came
to my school for all sporting activities and extra curriculum activities.
322. My school
integrates with Lagan College and Knockbreda to offer more classes
to all pupils.
323. My school
invites not only schools from the triangle area but also less fortunate
schools in Africa. We are very diversified and welcome many different
324. My school
is a specialist school in science and as a result often different
project are run with other schools. Primary schools often attend my
school to take part in activates like nature trails. Each year a project
is run with a special needs school and students attend my school to
take part in classes not offered at there school.
325. My school
is a very big school already with over 1000 pupils and can get crowded
so I don't think we have the space or big enough facilities.
326. My school
is an all girl school, but we are linked with a boy school down the
road. I am personally taught two of my A level classes in the boy
school and only have one A level class in my own school.
327. My school
is an integrated college and accept everyone

331. My school
is part of the Foyle learning community which gives pupils from other
schools close by the opportunity to study subjects that are unavailable
in their own e.g. AS Geography, AS Psychology and R.E and vice versa
for our pupils. Also once or three per month local primary school
classes visit for science demos etc.
332. My school
is shared with a school nearby. Gives me as a student more facilities.
333. My school
is successful so wants to stay that way?
334. My school
is the only school in the town, so it would be a bit of hassle to
both schools in terms of traveling, and the school is currently in

is very small and in 6th year we didn't have as many subjects options
so we traveled to other schools to study our AS and A-Level courses.
336. My school
is very well known school and likes to open up and have projects with
a lot of different schools.
337. My school
just never seems to use other schools equipment, it already has most
of the facilities needed.
338. My school
lets local schools use our swimming pool, but there is no facilities
sharing. So I wouldn't say a lot of sharing.
339. My school
lets pupils from the local high school to come and use our sports
facilities. It also lets pupils from the local catholic high school,
come and attend classes that their school doesn't offer.
340. My school
offers a range of course at the SRC (Southern Regional College) for
GCSE's and A-levels. Also pupils from my school can go to three different
schools for subjects including a grammar school. The junior school
also have projects such as STEM projects with various other schools.
In all I think this is quite a lot of sharing of facilities.
341. My school
offers all our pupils a chance to do projects with different schools
no matter their religion and for 6th years we get the chance to be
taught in our schools for the best possible advantage. Personally
I think this is a great thing.
342. My school
offers classes to pupils from other schools and vice versa. Also my
school undertakes many community projects and competitions and therefore
our schools mix frequently.
343. My school
offers close secondary school pupils the opportunity to study at my
school if the subjects they want to study can not be offered to them.
We also have a partner school which we share facilities with in hosting
music evenings etc.
344. My school
offers various subjects which are open to other schools at A-level
such as Moving Image Arts and Drama.
345. My school
only goes to and has kids from other schools for doing classes, other
ways there is virtually no sharing.
346. My school
participates in STEM, at A level students doing certain subjects go
to different schools and pupils from other schools come to my school,
and we have sport contests with other schools, but that is the extent
of sharing with other schools at least to my knowledge.
347. My school
provides enough activities and subject so we don't need to mix.
348. My school
shares a little but only if the other schools does not have the facility/equipment.

356. My school
shares its technology facilities with another grammar school.
357. My school
shares some classes with other schools to allow students from our
school can do subjects they couldn't do in ours and vice versa, which
in my opinion is ### a lot.
358. My school
takes on other students from all backgrounds to study which ever course
359. My school
takes part in workshops and talks that involve visiting other places
to meet with those who are from other areas. I think that this is
to help us meet people from other schools and to broaden our minds
about specific topics.
360. My school
takes pupils from all of the schools in the area for A Level subjects
such as Chemistry, Spanish, French, etc. Pupils from my school travel

many pupils come in for evening classes but I'm never in that late.
389. Of a 3G pitch
- open to neighbouring school and community. Certain A level classes
with two other schools. Use a grass pitch by rugby youth team. To
save money and bring money in, they would also be trying to share
A Levels with other schools so they can be seen as offering 26 or
so subject at A Level due to the government pushing the idea.
390. Often do
projects with other schools. Mostly mixed genders and religions.
391. Often participate

has a lot of communication with other schools and SERC (Glastry, glenola,
St Columnbanus) which creates opportunities to do subjects we cant
do for A Level in my school.
421. our school
has a lot of pupils from the all boys school, and the neighboring
non-grammar school come over to share classes at A-level we also gave
our old lockers to another local secondary school as they were in
need and we have a maths mentoring program

certain subjects in other schools.

it is quite conservative. There are also few schools to do sharing
431. Our school
is part of the Fermanagh Learning community meaning the subjects not
offered at our school are offered at others for all Fermanagh schools
there are several subjects involved e.g. physical education, physics,
moving images etc. this means there is a wider range of subjects available
to all pupils in Fermanagh. i do PE at another local college.
432. Our school
is part of the Foyle Learning Community and there is a small number
of pupils that go to other schools and a small number of pupils that
come to ours but I think they do not do much with other schools because
they want us to stay focused on our education and studies.
433. Our school
is very protective in their image, so maybe its because they would
be afraid of the school seeming unorganised, not focused or not that
434. Our school
offers more subject than some other schools so they come to us for
them. Also, sometimes classes are very small so it makes more sense
to have them together.

this is why I feel that my school shares a lot with other schools.
442. Our school
shares some facilities with another school. We share classes that
the other school takes, but ours doesn't, but also we share activities,
like the Duke of Edinburgh. Similarly we have a few classes a week
when some of us, help out in a special school in town.
443. Our school
shares the football field with another grammar school located close
by and as of this year there are girl pupils who go to the all boys
school for certain subjects; I feel this is a very good opportunity
to study subjects which would not have been available otherwise. Also

is not available for them otherwise.

community to do different subjects.

was recently built and has loads of new and high quality facilities
which is shared with local schools.
451. Our school
would offer another local schools A Level pupils to come and study
some subjects. I feel we do a lot of sharing because you always see
the pupils from the other school about our school.
in sixth form, classes often include people that have travelled from
other schools to ours or pupils travel from my school to other schools
to take A-levels that are not offered in my school.
453. People come

other schools come to our school for many classes and its not unusual

various different schools come to my school to study different subjects

461. People now
days especially the younger generation, don't understand their own
history with regards' to religion. Today's society is very sectarian
and for some it is hard to find common ground and understand the difference
in religions and the history behind it. Therefore, sharing classes
or facilities would bring todays generation together and lessen sectarian
views. It would demolish a divide and this will allow for a new understanding
and attitude with regards' to abilities, disabilities and religions
and this new attitude can be passed on to the next generations and
demolish any divides.

example physical education at 'A' level
530. Some schools
come to ours for different classes, career activities or young enterprise

our and go taught by my vice principle.
531. some schools
have better facilities and a larger department which we could use
and my school may also have some better facilities which others could
use and we would be mixing with other pupils who we could also learn
532. Some subjects
it is very disruptive
other schools come to our school and use the pitches when participating
in matches with RGS but there's only one pupil I knew of who comes
from another school to us for class and we rarely interact in school,
with pupils from other schools.
we do projects together with pupils from another school.
we go to talks together. People come from their school to our school

549. The other
schools come in and use our equipment such as our computer room, technology
departments and art department, we share a lot.
550. The projects
aren't that useful
551. The same
reason as above
552. The school
does share some A-Level classes like French and physics but it would
seem very little students from the neighbouring school take advantage
of this, plus I think the school could purpose to share more, but
I don't think I would be happy with that.
553. The school
got us to go to a special needs school and help with the pupils there.
Other schools came to ours for classes.
554. The school
I attend is fairly independent and not many schools wish to share

555. The school
I go to allows different schools to come to learn, I think it is wonderful
experience to meet them.
556. The school
offers a lot of different subjects.
557. The school
which I attend has an extensive range of subject choices and therefore
there is no need for the pupils to go elsewhere to get taught a specific
subject. My school is also very well equipped.
558. The school
which I attend prefers to be perceived as one with a separate identity
giving its position as a voluntary grammar school therefore participation
in projects with other schools is usually consistent at competitive
levels - i.e. debating competitions/engineering competitions - rather
than events involving the sharing of resources etc. However there
have been projects with the aim of bringing schools in the area together
in order to broaden horizons in recent times.
559. The schools
are beside each other and it broadens the range of A-Levels available
to pupils from both schools.
560. The size
of our school is not large enough to accommodate an influx of pupils.
561. There are
a few shared classes that take place in our school but the variety
of classes and projects is very minimal, the number of classes and
schools we integrate and share with should be increased to benefit
all students regardless of race, religion of school.

a lot of pupils that come to our school for different subjects
563. There are
always different students in my school doing A Levels.

people from several different schools that have classes in my school.
572. There are
rarely other pupils in our school

other schools to use facilities. But there was a proposal to have
certain classes with other schools in September of this year, though
it fell though due to timetabling difficulties.
574. There are
several joint workshops and presentations with other schools. There
are some A Levels offered off campus at other schools. They would
produce joint productions with other schools.
575. There are
subjects within my school which is a shared class with another school
576. There are
two projects open to my year. MLP, Magherafelt Learning Partnership,
which allows you to go to another school to do a subject you couldn't
do in your school. SEP, Shared Education Programme, it allows you
to take an after school course to give you more time and experiences
in your chosen career path. There is also the 5-School Project open
to 1st-3rd years. Allows you to spend time with other schools.
577. There aren't
enough mixed classes and activities
578. There aren't
many opportunities to do so.

Pupils from St Patricks College come for classes to my school however
that is the only thing iv noticed.
581. There has
never been any need to share as the school already has everything
582. there hasn't
been a reason to share
583. There is
a school close to ours and, over time, something of a rivalry has
developed. The two schools are unwilling to help each other out.
584. There is
a shared class where another school comes to our school and a shared
school trip is organised.
585. There is
a very mixed group of schools in my area e.g. Catholic, Protestant,
grammar, and non grammar I think it is due to travel however some
schools nearby mix to use each others facilities.
586. There is
no need to share - most nearby schools have all the same facilities.
587. There is
no real need to.
588. There is
not a lot of sharing, only in about 4 subjects and this is only at
589. There is
not enough room for a large amount of students sharing with us. The
other schools would also have to travel on a bus as we are not in
walking distance from any other school. However pupils from Inst do
travel over for school plays and drama.
590. There is
not much of a need to.
91. There is schools
come into use things.
592. There isn't
any other schools close enough that would make the distance worth
593. There isnt
many schools near us anymore. they already joined up with us
594. There was
no interaction with other schools besides the occasional football
595. There were
always people round from other schools in the area
596. There would
be more pupils in the class that would normally have small numbers
if it was just pupils from one school. The equipment may be better
than in the original school that the subject would have been taught
597. There's many
pupils from other schools that come to our school for our classes.
Hunterhouse students also come for ad maths.
598. There's no
reason why our school would need to share with other schools.
599. They allow
pupils from other schools to take classes in our school and post 16.
600. They always
have days out to things such as young enterprise etc. and people from
other schools come to my school to do some of their A Levels.
601. They are
very interested in primary schools. Our school teach other pupils
602. They carry
out a shared education programme (SEP) where pupils from each school
in the town choose a course to go on one day after school, it allows
pupils from all schools to bond and make friends. They participate
in MLP (Macherfelt learning partnership) where pupils from our school
and other schools can go to and from schools for classes that don't
run in their own school.
603. They do
things with other schools but not sure what the norm is. Don't know
if it's a lot or not a lot. 604. They do work with local schools and
605. They have
certain classes were people from other schools come because their
school doesn't provide that subject 606. They have combined classes
with the college beside us.
607. They have
no time for their students all they really care about is looking good.

and other courses like that.
609. They let
other schools use the sport pitch.
610. they let
pupils from other schools come to our school to take classes that
their schools don't teach 611. They might not have the funding to
transport to different schools.

shared with other schools really. Other schools would come and we
would do young enterprise activities in our assembly hall with different
schools and get grouped up with different pupils from different schools.
613. They share
614. They share
sports facilities and computer facilities
615. They share
with the other schools beside us and are very close.
616. They try
to attract the primary children so that they would come to our school
617. They would
hold days for the lower years in my school and other schools would
come and have maybe team building days together. They also invite
other pupils from different schools into attend classes that there
school may not do from GCSE to A-Level classes.
618. They would
play sports together.
619. They would
share facilities e.g. computers, sports hall etc. they would also
share teams e.g. other pupils from different schools could play in
the football team.
620. This is so
that they can strengthen contacts from other schools, also that the
pupils are in our school can get a feel of how other schools work.
621. […] If it
is the joining of school's I would not be opposed to it but I think
that change for the sake of change should be discouraged because the
system works well as it is at the moment.
622. This may
be to share equipment or facilities such as computers or the gym.
It may also be to introduce us to school children from a different
religion to us.
the years of attending secondary school I have participated in many
cross community projects with other schools, as well as the fact that
I attend another school to study one of my A-levels.
624. To an extent,
yes it does. Although because of my school being mainly protestant
I feel that it has limited interaction with other schools for example
catholic schools. I think this is mainly due to the remarks and reactions
in the past, by our own pupils against other religions.

at our school to meet and work with pupils from other schools.

Protestant and Catholic relations within the community.
