Twenty post-primary schools across Northern Ireland are to get extra places for new pupils in 2019.
The Department of Education (DE) has made the move in order to cope with an expected increase in Year Eight pupil numbers in some areas.
Most of the places are for schools in the Belfast, North Down and Ards areas.
However, Bangor Grammar School principal Elizabeth Huddleson told BBC News NI she was “deeply disappointed” that it had been given no extra places.
In all, 413 additional places are being provided in 20 schools this September.
Bangor Academy, Strangford Integrated College and Hazelwood Integrated College are to get 40 extra places each.
Regent House Grammar School and Lisnagarvey High School will get 30 extra places, while Ashfield Boys’ High School, Belfast Model School for Girls, Aquinas Grammar School, Lagan College, St Pius X College in Magherafelt and St Patrick’s College in Dungannon are to get 20 additional places.
Priory Integrated College in Holywood is to get 23 more places, Ashfield Girls’ High School 17 extra places and St Columbanus’ College in Bangor and St Patrick’s Academy in Dungannon 15 additional places each.
Dromore High School is to get 12 more Year Eight places, Strathearn School and Glastry College 10 each, Antrim Grammar School eight and Nendrum College three.
