Transition Year

After the Junior Certificate, students may be offered the option to participate in our Transition Year Programme. The school has a specific selection process which is fully explained to all applicants at the outset.  The one year course aims to provide the students with a range of new experiences, with emphasis on personal development and increased social competence. It is also an opportunity for students to improve their general, technical and academic skills with increased focus on self-directed learning, preparing them for the demands of the Leaving Cert. Students continue to study the core subjects while being offered the chance to try a wide selection of other subjects through our modular rotation system.

The following subjects are offered to all students:

  • Gaeilge
  • English (incl Public Speaking & Debating)
  • Mathematics
  • French or German
  • Art, Craft & Design
  • Enterprise
  • Biology, Chemistry & Physics
  • Construction & DCG
  • Economics
  • Social Concern
  • Environmental Studies
  • Local History
  • Music Appreciation
  • Young Social Innovators
