Leaving Certificate

Senior Cycle

The school hosts an Information Evening for parents of 3rd Year and Transition Year students to help with subject selection for Leaving Cert. The Career Guidance teacher, together with the Principal and Deputy Principal will be in attendance on the night to help with any queries parents may have. Parents are asked to sign off on their son’s final subject selection. The Subject Option Bands are directly influenced by the students’ requests each year.
