Transition Year

In our school Transition Year is an optional one-year programme, which comes immediately after completion of the Junior Certificate.  It acts as a bridge to help students make the transition from a typical classroom environment to one where they will take greater responsibility for their own learning and decision-making. It is a wonderful opportunity for students and provides them with a broad educational experience with the overall aim of increased maturity, building personal confidence and developing new skills and education for college and working life.

In addition to continuing with core subjects such as English, Irish and Maths, students participate in a wide range of interesting modules, which may vary annually, such as; Art, Music, Photography, Film-Making, First Aid, Business, History, Geography, Horticulture, I.C.T., Work Experience, Community Links. We offer our Transition Year Pupils the unique opportunity to participate in an American Student Exchange Programme and International Educational and Cultural Trips.
