Transition Year Programme

In our school Transition Year is an optional one-year programme, which comes immediately after completion of the Junior Cycle programme. 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 as it provides them with a broad educational experience with the overall aim of increased maturity, building personal confidence and developing new skills for Further, Higher Education and working life.

In addition to continuing with core subjects such as English, Gaeilge and Maths, students participate in a wide range of interesting modules, which vary annually: Art, Music, Photography, Film-Making, First Aid, Business, History, Geography, Horticulture, I.C.T., Work Experience, Community Links.

Additional to the broad curriculum provided in our school, we offer our Transition Year pupils the unique opportunity to participate in an American Student Exchange Programme and International Educational and Cultural Trips.
